Bare Knuckle Pickups - Blackguard '68 Stagger Tele Set

By Bare Knuckle Pickups

$ 230.00

Based on player requests for Telecaster® tones from specific eras and backed up by meticulous research, the Blackguard Tele® Series is a collection of four classic Tele® sets ranging from the original 'blackguard' Teles® of 1950 through to later 1968 models.

Grey bottomed flatwork, smaller diameter magnets and a much lighter wind characterise this early CBS era Tele® set. The brightest and most focused of the four sets in the series, the '68 Stagger coils have serious bite in the high end with an extremely percussive tone and lively dynamic. The matched wind of 42AWG bridge and 43AWG plain enamel neck is absolutely perfect for rosewood board Teles® producing a tight and ferocious tone.
