Alnico 5 poles provide lots of twang and warmth. A hot bridge pickup is perfectly balanced to a neck pickup with just the right amount of brightness and bell-like tone. More volume and lows than my “Anonymous” Tele set. Wax potting helps prevent microphonics and screeching in high-gain applications, but a lot of vintage pickups were not wax potted and have a little more open and clear tone. Opt for a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity neck pickup for a hum-canceling effect when you use the middle position on your 3-way Telecaster switch.
All of my pickups are made to your custom specs. Please allow two weeks after ordering for your pickups to be delivered.
Here is a comparison of the Broadway bridge pickup and the Workingman’s bridge pickup played through a Fulltone OCD, Strymon Flint Reverb and a modded Fender Champion 600 with the same guitar and the same settings. You will notice the Broadway has more highs and clarity while the Workingman is fatter and has a bit more growl.
