Harder driving blues and blues rock pickup. Alnico IV is a rarely seen magnet used in Tele pickups but it’s utilized here to create something truly special. In the Melancholia pickups it delivers a balanced frequency response and exceptional dynamic range. The vintage wind is punchier and has just a slight accentuation in the mids. With light picking they sound smooth, clean and sweet. Dig in and you get a more aggressive Tele tone. Still capable of twang the strength of the Melancholia pickups is in being able to drive harder for blues and rock without the exaggerated frequencies that can often plague Tele pickups.
