Classic twangy 50s Tele Lead tone, custom aged for a smoother treble response.
The Antiquity Tele
Lead will give you that early 50s Tele tone, but with the high end
sweetened by the custom calibrated hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets.
What you get is the classic Tele twang and snap, but with a treble
response that is nice and bright without being piercing. Like the
originals, the ferrous bottom plates are not wax potted for that breaking
up Telecaster twang tone that is just on the verge of feedback.
pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound in our Custom Shop, and all
parts are aged to give the look and sound of a pickup that has been
played for decades. We use vintage style push back cloth wire, and they
are all lacquered and potted in lamp black paraffin wax, like they were
in the 50s.
