Atticus Vintage 1950’s Telecaster Pickup Set
The Atticus 1950’s Telecaster Pickup Set is our tribute to the pioneering era in Fender history and is a take on the early 1950’s Fender Telecasters.
Keeping with the 1950’s Telecaster characteristics and delivering a fatter, hotter rounded sound, the Atticus 1950’s Telecaster Bridge Pickup rolls back the twang slightly for an overall fatter output and is a tad hotter than the the originals.
Magnet: Alnico 2
Copper Plated Baseplate
Bridge wrapped with period correct black string
Lead Wires: Vintage USA Cloth ‘Pushback’
The Atticus Neck pickup is a tiny bit hotter, but still keeping with the traditional Telecaster neck pickup sound. Warm and clear and delivering smooth mid frequencies, a superb rhythm pickup producing sweet tones.
Magnet: Alnico 3
Lead Wires: Vintage USA Cloth ‘Pushback’ x 2 for 3 way switch.
Choice of covers in Nickel, Chrome or Gold
Our Axekool vintage pickups are 100% handwound. Traditionally pinched between forefinger and thumb on one of our very own unique hand built pickup winding machines. Unlike machine wound pickups, handwound (scatterwound) pickups can have a richer harmonic voice. All our pickups are custom wound to order, so they are made for you.
We make our vintage pickups to order and the turnaround time for a Atticus Vintage 1950’s Telecaster Pickup Set is 2 to 3 weeks.
