Vintage-correct reproduction of 1954 Tele® lead pickup. Perfect for traditional country, country pop, chicken pickin', rockabilly, blues, and blues-rock.
Like the 1954 originals, this pickup features standard .187" diameter Alnico 5 pole pieces, raised for the "D" and "G" strings. The result is a twangy, bright and biting sound. Compared the STL-1b, the Vintage '54 has slightly reduced output and a bright and biting high-end detail. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable.
Available in lead (bridge) position only. The STR-1 is the correct match in the rhythm (neck) position.
