Warm, moderate-output single-coil for Tele®. Great for country, pop, jazz, blues and classic rock.
The sand cast Alnico 2 magnets and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the Alnico II Pro. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the Vintage '54, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response making it well suited to brighter instruments. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable. Rhythm version comes with a chrome-plated brass cover.
Available for both rhythm (neck) and lead (bridge) positions. Often used in the rhythm position and matched with a higher output lead pickup like the STL-2 Hot. Rhythm pickup is RW/RP relative to the lead pickup for hum canceling when both pickups are used together.
For brighter toned instruments. Works especially well with maple fingerboards.
