The VF-TE vintage set, is a vintage correct recreation of the 50’s Tele pickups. They offer the unique Tele tone, full of twang and bite in the bridge position and warm and open tone in the neck.
This custom wound pickup set is made for any vintage sound.
The bridge pickup uses alnico 5 rod magnets with staggered poles, coupled with a lower output wind, gives well defined treble response that is perfectly suited to any lead playing. The Neck pickup is designed for a smooth open tone with warm lower mids and airy highs.
Keeping to that authentic Tele feel, we hand assemble the bobbin with the period correct color and thickness forbon and alnico 5 rod magnets, then lacquer it before winding. We add a deep drawn chrome plated nickel-silver cover, cloth pushback lead wires, then wax pot like the originals.
