Blackguard TeleŽ Series - Flat '50
Output:
Vintage Hot

Bridge DC:
Magnet:
10.6KΩ *
Alnico V



Scatter-wound by hand with 43AWG plain enamel wire on both bridge and neck, this is pure Broadcaster heaven. The hottest of the four sets with a thicker zinc plated steel baseplate, flat profile magnets and authentic vintage 'flat top' deep-drawn brass cover; the Flat 50s have a simply massive sound. Chunky bottom-end and snarling mids create a throaty tone with excellent natural sustain that can really push a tube amp hard.

Klein Broadcaster gets close to that and is a PHENOMENAL pickup IMHO. http://www.kleinpickups.com/c-3-telecaster-pickups.aspx.

Fender did for the early Nocaster Relics and random Limited Editions.

Pretty sure Don Mare does one too!

On the low budget end, GFS has a "hot 60's" pickup that is about 10.5 DC and 43 AWG. Brass bass plate and level, raised A-V mangets. There is really nothing 60's about it, but it still is a pretty good sounding pickup. Going upscale, I believe Don Mare has a 43 AWG pickup.

Fender makes a "Broadcaster" p/u that is basically the same as the Texas Special except that it has flat pole pieces (alnico 5/43 awg). Unfortunately, it's not available aftermarket, but you may be able to find one on the Bay.

Mark & Charlene Webber. A great husband & wife team of winders from my neck of the woods. Yes they both wind. Fantastic work & great turn around times. Give em a call and get a feel. Tell em Al from Dirty South sent ya. Mind ya, I wind too but I still use their single coil pickups.

"Mark makes some of the best Strat pickups I've played! These things scream with tone. My old strat has never been happier. Texas blues heaven!" Bryan Austin (Clint Black)


"First of all, you got these pickups tuned in so nice. Mark has made me a set of Vintage Tele pickups and let me tell you, these pickups got the tone. All three positions work real nice for me, they make my Tele rock. Thanks Mark." Ricky Chancey (Hank Williams, Jr.) (Wet Willie) (RC & The Moonpies)

Let's face it. The tone is in your hands. Great pick-ups, guitars, and amps are just the enablers. But, it helps to have great gear. Some people get it. Some don't. I think Mark gets it. He really has the vintage style strat thing down. I have a custom wound set in the +6.2 range that are in between the vintage and texas set. They sound and even look like my original late 50's pick-ups that I have played forever. (Minus the sweat, grime, beer, etc.) I've A/B'd them back and forth and decided that I like 'em. I like 'em a lot. Thanks Mark....... more to come later on the hot HWJ set. Tony Bowles (Hank Williams Jr.)

Wow ! Lotta great tips.

All pretty much what I was looking for (which was the 1st reissue hot Nocaster pickups not the original 50's ones).

Thanks all !

Aaron at Rumpelstiltskin Pickups can wind whatever you want for not a whole lot of money. Great thing is that Aaron will actually talk to you via email as much as you want until you know exactly what you want. He'll even steer you to other pickups if he feels that you'd be better off with a different manufacturer.

Aaron winds a 43 awg 11K 1950 Blackrope that can be heard here. His 43 awg 10k 1950 Blackrope can be heard here. Personally, I prefer the 11K. And I got my 11k 1950s Blackrope with a low G stagger which I've never seen in any other manufacturer of early Tele bridge pickups. Like I said, he'll wind whatever you want. He's totally an affordable custom manufacturer, IME.

Wolfetone Rabid Bitch

Styled after early Broadcaster and Nocaster pickups, the Rabid Bitch uses 43 guage Plain Enamel wire at about 10k for a hot vintage feel. Punchy, raunchy, and mean, this pickup will snarl without loosing the Tele twangy goodness, and won't rip your eardrums out!

I've got Aaron's Black Rope 50s in a tele that was overly bright. He winds a nice pickup and the one I installed is thicker/beefier than your average tele bridge, If memory serves, He used A5 mags for the wound strings to maintain twang and definition. His customer service was outstanding as well. Overall, I like the OC Duff Plankster a bit better for this type of pickup but tone is a combination of factors and it could just be the gtr. it's in.

Don Mare 0038 is right on the money.

Fred Stuart's lap-wrap is also killer.

Stephens Designs 1950 Broadcaster. I used one in an Esquire build and it's amazing.
My brother has a vintage 57 Tele. The original pickups are long gone and he had some older Duncans in it and they were thin and uninspiring.
We put Stephens 1950 Broadcaster in the bridge and Stephens 1951 neck pickups in it and my brother is raving about them
He says that each note "sounds like it has a golden halo around it".

My buddy Bill Megela of Electric City Pickups winds a great set of broadcaster pickups that he calls the "Black Scotch" set... IMO they are the best sounding Broadcaster pickups I have tried... I actually have the very first prototype for this set, as I wanted mine wound a bit hotter, but he has refined his "formula" to a whole 'nother level.

Wow - have been poking around at the different sites and sound clips and am astounded at how expensive some of these pickups are...
