A faithful tribute to the 1950 original, our Vintage Broadcaster is the perfect choice for discerning players who demand something more from their Tele lead pickup. Our Broadcaster uses a special wind that best represents this pioneering era in Fender history. The Alnico 5 magnets with a slightly larger diameter of .197 and higher output coax biting treble and snarly mids for raucous riffs and stinging lead runs from any Telecaster. Try it in front of a fuzz pedal for that unmistakable British rock sound. Pair with our Vintage Tele Rhythm for great vintage setup.

Like all our Vintage models, we stay true to the smallest details. We hand grind our magnets, then hand assemble the bobbins from the traditional Forbon and dip them in lacquer before winding. The lacquer stabilizes the Forbon for decades of use. After winding, the pickup is wrapped with black cotton yarn and vintage style waxed cloth hookup wire is soldered to the coil eyelets. Wax potting with the classic tele copper plated steel bottom plate installed completes the pickup for squeal free performance.
