An authentic recreation of those legendary pickups.
The Seymour Duncan Vintage for Broadcaster set is a vintage-correct reproduction of Broadcaster pickups. Recommended for traditional country, country pop, chicken pickin', rockabilly, blues, and blues-rock.
The 1948 pre-Telecaster pickup had an exceptional twangy, "nasal" sound with tremendous sustain. Leo Fender called it the Broadcaster. The STL-1b duplicates this sought-after vintage sound with larger-diameter (.197") pole pieces in a flat pole piece orientation. Compared to the Vintage '54, this pickup has slightly more output and more snarl in the mids. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable.
The STR-1 is the correct match in the rhythm (neck) position. The rhythm (neck) pickup in a well-balanced vintage Telecaster compliments the bright twang of the lead pickup with a smooth and open tone, warm lower-mids and airy highs. Comes with a chrome-plated brass cover and waxed cloth hookup cable and works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
