    Does anyone know whether the stock neck pickup on a 1970 Tele is made from brass or nickel silver? Thx!

    If it still has the older type cover with the sharper edges it is brass. If it has the typical rounder shape 70s cover it is NS

    It seems rounder to me, but I’m not sure I’ve seen one with “sharper edges”. Can you point me to a pic somewhere? Thx!

    Yeah, I kind of like it. It has a rather round, pretty well balanced, transparent sound to it—and when overdriven the tonal spectrum it produces has a touch of humbuckerish sound to it.
