A Miracle of a Tele pickup.
Forty years Tele owners have fought between a vintage spec pickup, with it's Nashville Twang and percussive snap, and a hotter over-wound pickup that can rock, but loses the magic Tele tone.
The Alnico Fatbody uses oversized 6.5mm Alnico V rods and classic Plain Enamel 42 gauge wire to deliver the best of both worlds.
Fat, Juicy, Snappy and POWERFUL. As much power and balls as a hot over-wound 12K Tele pickup, yet wound to only 7K to deliver the shimmery high end and string snap that Tele players love.
This is a beautifully made pickup- using vintage fiber bobbins, cloth leads, carefully potted in a paraffin/beeswax mixture, and wrapped in classic black cord to complete the package. MANY many copies of this out there- but there is only ONE original Fatbody using my custom recipe!
Match it with the calibrated neck pickup and you've got a hell of a Tele on your hands.
If you chose the Kwikplug version you can order a matching “Solderless” pre-assembled wiring harness for quick and easy “pain-free” installation! Click here to add a harness to your cart.
