SKU: PT-T-1955 Categories: , Tags: , , , , , , , ,


All the characteristics of a vintage pickup – smooth, clear, warm but with more mid range and a slight bigger bottom end…perfect to take the edge off the bright bridge position and for a creamier and thicker neck tone. Offers that perfect, ’50s tone that Tele’s are known for but slightly overwound to offer mid range balance.

This pickup offers tremendous vintage tone for your Tele and is perfect for blues, country, rock and most other applications of music. An upgrade to nearly most pickups.

Comes with Alnico V Magnets and is wound with Heavy Formvar magnet wire.

Available in Neck or Bridge.

    Ordered a single to accompany a ’57 classic. And wow, what a pick-up. I love it, crowds loved it. Most importantly customer loved it.

    Well made, outstanding communication. And shipping was amazing fast. I highly recommend and have added to my selection of pickups for custom builds.

  6. David Scheef (verified owner)

    These pickups are perfect. Vintage warmth, but Ready to growl and bark when needed. Like an old lap dog that’s everyone’s best friend, but can still raise hell when there’s a stranger on the porch.
