This is our take on the famous "Keef" Telecaster based on a 2017 American Pro. The guitar is not only beautiful but it plays like a dream.
A vintage-voiced, extremely versatile neck pickup that pairs well with most bridge humbuckers. The 59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because its so versatile. Its designed in the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but weve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles.
The 59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound thats great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isnt a genre that the 59 cant work within. It pairs nicely with a high output bridge humbucker like the JB or Custom but is equally at home with more moderate pickups like the 59 bridge. And its a popular choice for those with humbucker-routed Telecasters as well. And if you order a four-conductor version for coil splitting, its single coil mode is crystal clear.
The 59 Model neck pickup is wound on Seymours Leesona 102 pickup winding machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI in the 1950s.
Duncan Vintage Broadcaster
Our Vintage Broadcaster set delivers that classic 50s Telecaster tone with extra punch and twang. A faithful tribute to the originals, our Vintage Broadcaster set is the perfect choice for discerning players who demand something more from their Tele pickups. The lead pickups larger diameter magnets and higher output coax biting treble and snarly mids for raucous riffs and stinging lead runs from any Telecaster. The rhythm pickup is designed for a smooth, open tone with warm lower mids and airy highs. With its hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, this neck pickup will deliver big full sounding chords. Warm enough for most types of rhythm playing, but percussive enough for chicken pickin as well. Since 1978, weve been building all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups with the right color and thickness of Forbon flatwork, along with the period correct magnet stagger. Each pickup comes complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires and traditional keyed bottom plate. We hand file the flatwork, assemble, and lacquer the bobbin just as it was done during Fenders Golden Age. Each pickup is potted in our wax formulation for squeal free performance.
