’59 Dragon Twang for Tele


SoulTone ’59 Dragon Twang Tele Set – Classic Tele tones with a raw bite and spank as close as I can wind to those airship guys and their first couple of albums recorded with Mr. Page’s infamous 1959 Dragon Tele. Black vulcanized fiber bobbins and sand cast Alnico 5 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 earliest days or you can have it wrapped in black if you prefer an all-black look. Choose your coil wrap color below along with wind options. 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.
