Black Watch Tele Pickups
Current Lead Time As Of 12/21: 4 to 6 weeks
Our most popular Tele pickups. The Black Watch are Broadcaster spec’d, built with large diameter Alnico III magnets and wound with 43 AWG plain enamel wire in the bridge and the neck. The Black Watch is Revel’s take on the early 50’s Tele pickups and they share an unmistakable a tone.
The Black Watch has a classic throaty twang with added fatness, fullness, grunt and growl than a more typical Tele pickup. The mids are slightly accentuated, the treble is clear, and it is overall a driven tone. The Alnico III lends a very unique sweetness especially when rolled back. Those looking for a “Keef” bridge pickup, look no further.
