Flat ’50 Telecaster Pickup Set

LEAD TIME IS 4 TO 8 WEEKS. We're hustling!


A later 50’s Broadcaster spec’d and scatterwound set with flat-poled Alnico V magnets.

43 awg plain enamel wire in the bridge and the neck. Zinc-plated steel base plate and vintage push back wire. Compared to the Black Watch these have a fatter and chunkier bottom end, stronger mids and a more powerful ‘throaty-ness.” These have extended sustain that can push an amp hard and faster.

Bridge: 10.5k, Neck: 6.8k


  • Hand-assembled bobbins
  • Bonded assembly for durability
  • Lacquer dipped prior to winding/paper wrapped magnets
  • Hand Wound w/ 43 AWG Plain Enamel Coil Wire
  • Rope Wrapped Coil
  • Steel Base Plate
  • Vintage push-back wire leads
  • Wax Potted


Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. Both have very limited meaning and are, in many ways, lies. The best player can make the lousiest guitar loaded with the cheapest pickups played through the lamest amp sound downright amazing. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.
