Vintage ’52 Telecaster Pickup Set
Single Pickup or Set of 2 Pickups
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.

By default all of our pickups are shipped with Royal Mail who we find to be excellent both within the UK and Internationally. Their rates enable us to offer prices that are very reasonable for our customers and the timeframe is great for the vast majority of countries. We find that, once despatched, Royal Mail tend to take 1 working day within the UK, 2/3 working days within the EU, 4/5 working days to North America and Worldwide. These are guidelines and of course some countries differ and the level of ‘officiousness’ in customs departments differs massively worldwide. If ordering from a country which is notorious for taking a while to process imported goods (we can think of a few!) please build this into your expectation on the timeframe after despatch.
How long will it take to make?
As a small pickup maker handmaking within an extremely busy workshop we expect to complete all pickups sets within 16-20 working days (Relic’ed orders 5 days longer). We sometimes work quicker than those timeframes and we’ll always endeavour to finish your pickups as quick as we are able to of course. We can sometimes process a rush order if you have an upcoming, important concert or perhaps if you are buying for a relative’s birthday etc - feel free to message and we’ll always see what we can do.
