Clones of the earliest 1950 Broadcaster pickups that were famous for their fat lap steel sound and clarity.
Magnet: Alnico 5
Magnet: Alnico 3
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!

Broadcaster Clone Bridge pickup This pickup is really great. After trying a few different bridge pickups in a Jeff Senn T style guitar, I took a shot on the Broadcaster. I'm very glad I did. Not only was it the best that particular guitar has sounded, it's my favorite pickup for the 'early Tele/Broadcaster' sound. Sweet top end that's not too dark with a little more punch than the later 50's Tele style winds..
