Vintage '54 Tele Bridge STL-1

A vintage correct 54 Telecaster Lead pickup. This is the Tele lead tone, full of twang, bite, and bark.

For Telecaster players seeking a straight forward approach to the bridge tone that helped define rock, blues, and country, we offer the Vintage 54 Tele Lead. Its hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets with a raised D and G, coupled with a lower output wind, yield a bright, well defined treble response that is perfectly suited to plucky lead work and fast moving chords from Chicago to Nashville. Pair with our Vintage Tele Rhythm for great vintage sounding setup.Like all our Vintage models, we stay true to the smallest details. We hand grind our magnets, then hand assemble the bobbins from the traditional Forbon and dip them in lacquer before winding. The lacquer stabilizes the Forbon for decades of use. After winding, the pickup is wrapped with black cotton yarn and vintage style waxed cloth hookup wire is soldered to the coil eyelets. Wax potting with the classic tele copper plated steel bottom plate installed completes the pickup for squeal free performance.
