I wind my Vintage CBS 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 brings a little brightness into the tone but still retains a vintage vibe.

    Hi Dave,
    Just wanted to let you know, I’m extremely impressed with my new Tele pickup. Sonicaly, it has transformed my Mex tele. There’s clarity without being harsh and warm without being woolly, such a great neck pickup. You’ve now got me thinking about swapping out the Seymour Duncan in the bridge…..
    Thanks for making a great-sounding pickup.
