These Tele-style Firecasters are hot single coil pickups wound with a scattered winding pattern that produces a nice blend of warmth, creaminess and transparent layer of clarity on top that really brings out the qualities and characteristics of a good Telecaster. These hotties drive a tube amp sweetly but clean up nicely when you back the volume down a little. Plenty of twang on top but with a slight P90 sizzle to really cook things up. We offer these Neck and Bridge models in 3 variations which have different magnets. Alnico 2 being the warmest, Alnico 5 being the brightest and Alnico 3 being more transparent and middle-of-the-road with a softer attack. Pick your poison!
