Black Watch

Broadcaster spec’d. Large diameter Alnico III and 43 gauge wire in the bridge and neck. Steel base plate and vintage push-back wire.

The Black Watch has a throaty twang with added fatness, grunt and growl than a more typical pickup. The mids are slightly accentuated and the Alnico III will lend a very unique sweetness to the tone when rolled back.

    I just dropped a Blackwatch set into a Classic Vibe 50s Tele as part of a Broadcaster build. Stop thinking, and just go for it—these pickups sing!

    Compared to the stock pickups, the Revel set is more dynamic, has more tonal color, and offers clearer string articulation. And the sustain is unreal!

    Jesse was a pleasure to work with. We chatted a few times over email, and he was always friendly and quick to respond. I could not have asked for a better experience or a better product.

    I just paired this (bridge) with a Revel WRHB! A great combination!

    Just the right amount of Tele twang in the Black Watch without being too harsh.

    If you are looking for a great, balanced Tele tone in the bridge, this is it! And at an incredible price point too, for a custom, hand-wired pickup!

    Jesse fails to disappoint! I have been waiting for over three months for someone (not to be named) who bills theirs as “closest to vintage sound as you’ll ever get” to ship their pickup with excuse after excuse as to why it is not in my grubby little paws when I should have gone to Jesse first! It sounds the part, looks the part, and Jesse is a LOT easier to deal with! If you want it “extra Keefy”, make certain to ask Jesse to do that for you! You will NOT be disappointed.

    Jesse was able to wind Broadcaster Tele style pickups with UOA5 and Degaussed A5 magnets. One of the best sounding Tele sets I’ve used with phenomenal response to the volume knob. Jesse was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be ordering from him again.

    Holy balls!

    Hey Jesse. I just picked up a Tele today and converted it into an Esquire and dropped the Black Watch in it. It’s absolutely killer! It’s fat, it stings and has plenty of twang. I am super exited to play it. Thanks a ton, man.”
