Inspired by vintage Gold and Silver Foil pickups.
These custom made pickups have 2 outputs – NORMAL( 6.4kOhm – white) and HOT(14.7kOhm – yellow).
It is just like having 2 pickups in 1 package – the distinctive tone of each output will cover a lot of ground.
Normal output will sound like a classic tele neck – twangy and bright. Switching to HOT output will deliver fattter and warmer tone with extra punch and bite. Install a switch or a push pull pot – or simply connect the output that fworks for you and play on.
We can also build these without an extra coil tap – you can choose the DC resistance, Alnico alloy, bottom bobbin color – and customize your pickup the way you want. Without the coil tap it would cost $59USD + $8USD shipping.
– open nickel silver cover with thin aluminum foil
– Elektrisola AWG43 copper enameled wire

Tele neck pickups can be mounted with WOOD or PICKGUARD screws. Please let us know if you need the pickguard or wood mounting screws with this pickup. You can send us a message or leave a note at the checkout page.
#3 x 1″ Round Head Wood Screws
Wood mounting screws are screwed to the body/ wood – under the pickguard – and these require a larger hole in the pickup – so we will re-drill the mounting holes in the pickup to fit the wood screws.
#4 – 40UNC Phillips Pan Head Pickguard Screws
Pickguard screws are used for mounting the pickup on the pickguard – this way the pickup height can be adjusted without removing the pickguard.
