Broadcaster Clone Tele® Pickup
Alnico 3 for the bridge and Alnico 5 for the neck, with vintage-spec 43 gauge plain enamel wire, a deep drawn chrome brass cover for the neck pickup, and a zinc plated baseplate for the bridge pickup. RWRP when combined for hum-cancelling in the middle position.
All original manufacturing methods are the same with handwound coils, and lightly wax potted coils. The neck pickup is clean and glassy with lots of power to balance right with the overwound bridge pickup. The bridge pickup is fat and clear when clean, and creamy when distorted. Stellar example of a true Broadcaster sound!

These are simply gorgeous pickups. To me, this is what Tele pickups should sound like ... nice bite, a VERY special sounding neck pickup, great balance ... my new go-to for Tele builds.
The work is impeccable, ordering was easy, information on the website was helpful and accurate, the packages arrived intact.
