Telecaster Pickups

‘The ID Telecaster Set’

Featuring our unique-to-Radioshop ‘ID’ (Increased Dynamics) Innovation, the ‘ID Telecaster Set’ gives a staggering improvement in dynamics, clarity and presence when compared with other Telecaster pickups thanks to its unpotted inner core of copper winds. Through months of experimentation and subjection to hard gigging we have delivered a set of Telecaster pickups which give stunning extra warmth in the neck position and enhanced classic growl to the bridge pickup. Solder them in and hear the difference!

  • Vintage Spec Output: 6.7k (N), 7.2k (B).

‘The ID Telecaster 50s Set’

By popular demand and a regular custom order here at the Radioshop workshop, we now offer our best selling ID:Telecaster Pickups set in Alnico III, 50s flavour for those of you looking to do a faithful ’50s maple ‘board project. As above, our ID:Tele 50s set features our unique-to-Radioshop ‘ID’ (Increased Dynamics) Innovation giving a staggering improvement in dynamics, clarity and presence when compared with other Telecaster pickups thanks to their unpotted inner core of copper winds. Twang is on offer in spades here from the bridge pickup which is orderable with a flat stagger for an early 50s flavour or with a raised D and G for more of a late 50s vibe. The difference in tone? A slight boost to the mid response with the raised pole pieces version. An absolutely classic sounding set with serious Tele bite from the bridge and that hallowed warm jazzy tone from the neck pickup – check out the lovely playing of Dafydd Saer under the ‘Watch’ tab to the right to hear the tones on offer from this pickups set.

Vintage ’52 Telecaster Set

Featuring period correct flat bevel polepieces and 43 AWG Wire in the Bridge and Neck, our Vintage ’52 Tele Set offers the famous Telecaster clarity and warmth in the middle position but with a dirtier rasp to the bridge pickup than our ’58 Set. The bridge is superb for cutting solos and Country Twang but also gets gritty very quickly with a touch of overdrive. The Neck, being the same pickup as our ’58 Set, gives us those dark, mellow sounds that we’ve all come to love. A very versatile selection of sounds is offered here for players of all styles but especially for Country, Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

  • Flat Stagger Alnico 3 Magnets.
  • Handwound with 43 AWG Plain Enamel Wire.
  • Vintage Spec Output: 6.3k (N), 7.4k (B).
  • Choice of neck pickup cover – nickel, chrome, gold.
  • Bridge wrapped with period correct black string.
  • Black Fibreboard Bobbins dipped in Nitrocellulose.
  • Pickups Wax Potted to reduce Microphonic Feedback.
  • Magnet degaussing to reproduce light ageing available on request.

Vintage ’58 Telecaster Set

Our ’58 Tele Set offers the same Alnico 3 magnets and 43 AWG Wire in the Neck position as our ’52 Set but changes to 42 AWG for the Bridge Pickup. The Bridge as a result has a tiny bit less grit to it but still retains superb Twang for those country and rock solos. The Middle position has supreme clarity and musicality to it whilst the neck is suitably darkened by its chrome and brass cover for those warm jazz solos. Perhaps our favourite set of the moment here at Radioshop.

  • Vintage Staggered Alnico 3 Magnets.
  • Handwound with 42 AWG Plain Enamel Wire (Bridge) and 43 AWG (Neck).
  • Vintage Spec Output: 6.3k (N), 7.4k (B).

Vintage ’64 Telecaster Set

The Alnico 5 magnets in our Vintage ’64 Set give these pickups an extra punch, output and high end detail over our 50’s Sets and this set is our most recommended for the modern player. The neck pickup has wonderful single note detail and bite whilst the middle position offers plenty to help you cut through the mix when playing rhythm. The bridge has a warm snarl which is perfect for both rock soloing and mid sixties inspired country licks.

  • Vintage Staggered Alnico 5 Magnets.
  • Handwound with 42 AWG Plain Enamel Wire (Bridge) and 42 AWG (Neck).
  • Vintage Spec Output: 6.4k (N), 7.5k (B).
