The World's Best, biggest, snappiest and most toneful Tele Neck Pickups! You know the problem with Tele neck pickups- The great looking and vintage correct chrome covered pickups tend to sound dead and totally bassy- And even if you get them overwound there's still no string snap. Hey- why should the Strat players have all the fun? Back in the 80's I used to make these by hand- I'd start with a set of Strat fiber bobbins, carefully shave them down with an exacto knife- drill out the holes to accommodate P Bass pole-pieces, the lacquer dip 'em, wind with 42 gauge Formvar wire on my sweet 1/2 HP Baldor motor pickup winding rig, wax dip the whole thing and dress it up with correct vintage black cord. The HUGE pole-pieces looked amazing, and my Tele had the kind of string snap and presence that NO TELE ON EARTH HAD. I played all over the place with that guitar, and due to popular request I sold a bunch for $90- even sold a few to some then-famous rock stars. 15 years later I finally had the scratch to have a proper run of these made, using my exact formula- I gotta say- these are amazing! These are ALNICO pole-pieces, all correct vintage everything, even cloth covered wires. I promise you- there is no better Tele neck pickup on the planet if you're after big, bold tone. You get one BRAND NEW GFS Alnico Fatbody neck pickup-As with all GFS high end pickups it's packaged with all installation parts and complete wiring instructions.
