Extremely balanced true single-coil lead pickup developed originally for Nashville studio players. Recommended for traditional country, country pop, blues, and classic rock.
Tele players often complain that their low strings sound "mushy" and their high strings are too bright - especially in the bridge position. The Five-Two concept corrects this with Alnico 5 magnets on the three low strings and Alnico 2 magnets on the three high strings. The result is an all-around, extremely well-balanced pickup with traditional output and vintage appointments such as vulcanized fibre bobbins, formvar wire, vintage magnet stagger and waxed cloth hookup cable.
