Telecaster Pickups from The Creamery
My Telecaster single coil pickups are 100% scatter wound (fed by hand) on hand cut vulcanised flatwork with individually set eyelets for the wiring. Each Tele bridge pickup is scatterwound at slowish speed with 42 AWG (46 SWG) or 43 AWG (46.5 SWG) plain enamel or vintage formvar copper wire before being wax-potted in a combination of beeswax and paraffin. Before potting, each Telecaster bridge pickup is engraved with its name, creation date making each one a true one off.
Choosing the right pickup can be a daunting process - Drop me an email with your requirements (tone/voice/output etc) and I'll either recommend a set or wind you a custom set of Telecaster pickups based on your own personal specifications.
*NOTE: I wind my pickups RW/RP as standard but you can request vintage non-RW/RP or alternative polarities - Just drop my an email.
