Vintage ’58 Telecaster Pickups Set
Single Pickup or Set of 2 Pickups
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.

Listen to the Vintage ’58 Telecaster Pickup Set
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.
