Cheers! The pickup came from eBay - listed as "Electric Guitar Tele Pickup 1964 Bridge Pickup 9.2K 60S Hot Classics Alnico 3" which is a fair mouthful, but when it arrived I was pretty blown away by the quality. The only thing I thought might be lesser than a boutique Tele pickup was that the baseplate wasn't solid copper, but then I found out that the 50s originals were copper plated steel anyway, which makes sense for magnetic reasons. Beautiful quality, maybe a bit too hefty for the 350k pots, but sounds great rolled off a little. Shockingly cheap for how good it is (same for the bridge).

I really wish Fender went with that pickguard for the Telemaster.
It looks so much better than the cut-off tele/JM hybrid one.
Det er mig der holder traeerne sammen.
