Here's the great early Tele sound, made with authentic materials- Plain Enamel wire, Fiber bobbins, Sand-Cast Alnico 5 rod magnets set to the correct 60s vintage stagger, even push back cloth wire.
The Alnico V slugs are hand-magnetized, to as accurately as possible match the exact gauss of the vintage sets we used as inspiration. We've potted them in a paraffin/beeswax mixture- and they're just the sweetest, purest, most responsive Tele pickups you've ever played.
These are tight and STRONG... Wound a bit hotter at a strong 7K, you get a bit more mids, a bit more bottom and a bit more power! The heavy Formvar wire and grey-fiber bottom bobbin yield a really strong Tele bridge sound- lot's of Nashville Twang mixed with plenty of good, strong Tele ROCK. The 63s can drive a Marshall amp just fine, and work great with pedals. You don't lose any clarity but gain the hard, spanky Tele midrange early 60s Teles are famous for. Match with the pro series neck pickups to create a noise canceling middle position sound.
They are packed up in our "Professional Series" box complete with nickel plated stainless steel mounting screws, silicone rubber springs and wiring instructions.
