A calibrated set of Leddin “Vintage 66” Telecaster pickups.  Modeled along the line of late ’60s Telecaster pickups.  The perfect pickup set for that classic late ’60s country twang and for players who like their amp to do the work.

Bridge: “Vintage ’66”

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.

Neck: “Vintage ’66”

I wind my Vintage 66 Telecaster neck pickups with 43 AWG Plain enamel wire and alnico 5 magnets. Plain enamel wire and alnico 5 magnets made their way into CBS Fender guitars from the mid ’60s until the late ’70s. This neck pickup has a distinct late ’60s the tone with a little warmth and not too bright.
