Overview

An authentic recreation of those legendary pickups.

The Seymour Duncan Vintage for Broadcaster set is a vintage-correct reproduction of Broadcaster pickups. Recommended for traditional country, country pop, chicken pickin', rockabilly, blues, and blues-rock.

Bridge position
The 1948 pre-Telecaster pickup had an exceptional twangy, "nasal" sound with tremendous sustain. Leo Fender called it the Broadcaster. The STL-1b duplicates this sought-after vintage sound with larger-diameter (.197") pole pieces in a flat pole piece orientation. Compared to the Vintage '54, this pickup has slightly more output and more snarl in the mids. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable.

Neck position
The STR-1 is the correct match in the rhythm (neck) position. The rhythm (neck) pickup in a well-balanced vintage Telecaster compliments the bright twang of the lead pickup with a smooth and open tone, warm lower-mids and airy highs. Comes with a chrome-plated brass cover and waxed cloth hookup cable and works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
