The vintage Wide Range Humbucker sound in a Direct Drop-in Replacement
A true replacement for the modern Wide Range Tele / Thinline Humbucker reissue pickups. Classic fat "Doubled Up" single coil tones - Great clarity and string definition with a bright warmth. Individual threaded pole magnets charged to around 2/3rds capacity allow you to dial in each string. A warmer mid-range than standard single coils and with a higher output, they're great for breaking up an amp.
With a great fat bridge tone sounding akin to a "doubled-up" Tele and a neck with a warm, sweet brightness.
Vintage nickel-silver baseplate, ferrous internal reflector plate, full-size custom bobbins with medium speed scatterwound coils - The Creamery Classic '71 Wide Range Tele / Thinline Humbucker, a direct replacement for those modern reissues.
Seperate Pole spacing for Bridge & Neck position
Unlike the originals & reissues, I've made my Classic '71 Wide Range Humbuckers with 53mm Bridge pole spacing & 50mm pole spacing for better string definition in the neck position.
I've also lowered the neck output a little to give much better volume balance between bridge & neck pickup. This way there is no sudden volume jump when switching positions.
Vintage style threaded magnets
My vintage take on the original Wide Range pickups have either 12 threaded custom magnets or a combination of 6 threaded magnets and 6 x hidden Alnico 2 rod magnets. With the threaded & Alnico 2 rod magnets together the tone is ever so slightly rounder, warmer with a few less highs - Great if you want to take a little 'spank' out of the bridge position.
I've had custom covers manufactured especially for these pickups. VIntage nickel/silver material, plated in nickel fitted to vintage nickel/silver baseplates. They're also available in Aged Nickel or the slightly more yellowed Bare Nickel.
PLEASE NOTE: These pickups are a direct drop-in replacement to fit the modern Fender® reissue Wide Range Humbuckers.
