’51 Historic Twang for Tele


The original twang! The SoulTone ’51 Historic Twang Tele Set is based on the nocaster era before Fender settled on the telecaster brand in ’52. Vintage and soulful vibe with lots of twang. Black vulcanized fiber bobbins, neck wound with 43 AWG, bridge wound with 42 AWG. Sand cast Alnico 2 magnets. Reverse wound, reverse polarity for noise cancelling middle position. Neck pickup comes with chrome OR raw nickel cover (your choice), bridge pickup coil comes wrapped in either traditional vintage correct 8 ply white cotton string like Leo preferred in the early days or you can have it wrapped in black if you prefer an all-black look. Leave a note when you order to let me know which color you want. Bridge 7.5K, Neck 7.2K. Mounting screws with vintage surgical tubing are included for the bridge pickup only as Tele neck pickups can be mounted different ways depending on the year. All my pickups come wax potted.

Bridge Pickup comes with copper plated steel baseplate. Baseplates made of steel, copper, brass or nickel create eddy current interference which shift the resonances toward the lows, resulting in a fatter, more pleasant tone, especially in the bridge position.
