Leddin Handwound Vintage ’50s Formvar Telecaster neck pickup 7.65k alnico 3


1 in stock


I build these pickups to order with a 4 week turnaround after receipt of full payment.  Items listed in stock means I have the parts to build them.  To order please purchase via the website cart and within 4 weeks I will post out your pickup.  Tone cannot be rushed my friends!

I wind these neck pickups to vintage ’50s specs using 43 AWG Formvar wire and alnico 3 magnets. The result is a sweet warm vintage tone and a perfect match for my ’50s Formvar Bridge units.
