I build these pickups to order with an approximate 3-4 week turnaround after receipt of full payment. Please contact me prior to purchase for an accurate ETA.
A few years back I had the pleasure of rewinding an original vintage 1966 Tele bridge pickup taking detailed notes in the process. The ’66 Tele bridge pickup has a lower 6.2k output and coupled with alnico 5 magnets produces that bright country twang that makes it highly desirable among country players. I build my pickup on a grey bottomed CBS style bobbin wound with 42 AWG Plain enamel wire and .187 inch alnico 5 magnets. The D and G magnets are both taller with the D being the tallest as per the original specs. This magnet stagger is calibrated to the pitch of each string and this pickup is perfect for vintage 7.25 inch radius necks. This pickup is great for players who use a low gain pickup and let their amp do the work.
