I wind these pickups to original ’50s Black guard Tele specs with 42 AWG plain enamel wire on an alnico 3 bobbin.  The moderate output and alnico 3’s give this pickup a nice bite without the ice pick.  The highs have a subtle sharpness while the low end has bit of spank.  I would say this is one of my most versatile pickups yet and has the twang for country and also the bite for rock when driven.

A few tasty sound clips, courtesy of Brisbane guitarist Nathan Moore played on my maple necked test Tele “The beast” proving that my pickups sound great even in a hunk of junk like this!

    Dave’s N-Caster Bridge PU has an authentic 50s tone with TWANG and PUNCH that delivers the ear candy. If you want some more sound bites then check out my YouTube demo with an ’82 JV Squire 52 RI played clean & with stock Boss BD-2 into a Fender Super Reverb https://youtu.be/m2vfRjI30H0
    Sonic heaven!!
