This is a custom-wound in our shop, handcrafted Telecaster neck pickup wound to Fender specs.
- ~ Neck – wound to 7-7.2k with alnico 5 magnets
- ~ Wax-potted to eliminate squealing & microphonics
- ~ RWRP (reverse-wound, reverse-polarity) to reduce hum and buzz
- ~ Cover is not included
- ~ Vintage-style, cloth-covered leads
- ~ Handcrafted with all “Made in the USA” parts (bobbins in North Carolina, magnets in Arkansas, pickup wire in Wisconsin, lead wire in New York)
There are a lot of variables that go into creating, or recreating a tone. While each item in your signal chain is important, no one item will do the job. Pickups, along with the way your guitar is wired, are probably the most important parts in your signal chain. Changing out the pickups/wiring has the biggest impact on your sound. If you are looking for a better-than-stock-Fender tone, THIS is where you start.
We do not recommend that you use a pickup cover with a Tele neck pickup. It tends to bleed a lot of highs to ground and, in our opinion, it tends to deaden the tone. If you DO want a neck pickup cover, we suggest one of the “open” covers as they tend to pass more highs to your signal chain.
Premium quality pickups that are handwound when you order them. We can custom-tailor the winding or the types of magnets to any spec that you’d like.
This neck pickup is handcrafted by Hoagland Custom and wound specifically FOR YOU. It is NOT an “off-the-shelf” pickup. It is NOT a relabeled, imported pickup. This is made in our shop, from scratch, and it is the highest quality pickup you can buy made from 100% American made parts.
While all of our pickup & wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily by most do-it-yourselfers, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install them for you. There are a lot of variables when it comes to working on guitar electronics (ground loops, conflicts in values of different parts, etc.) and your local guitar tech is experienced to handle troubleshooting for you.
