Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Tele Neck
The Alnico II Pro Tele Lead uses a vintage coil wind, and sand-cast Alnico 2 rod magnets for a vintage Telecaster pickup sound and vibe, but with a smoky sweetness on the high end. You’ll still feel the Tele snap and twang, but with a nice, round warmth added in. Your pick attack will feel slightly mellower, and chords will have a spongy, bouncy quality.
These vintage-style Tele pickups (APTL-1, APTR-1) use Alnico 2 rod magnets to provide a softer treble attack for players who want Telecaster lead tone without excess bite and classic Tele rhythm tone with a sweeter, smoother treble response.
