    Hello
    The consensus seems to be a broadcaster bridge pickup would have been 8-10K
    And I have an handmade one that sounds fabulous, and as far as I can tell having never played one, sounds like others have described on this venerable forum.

    So my question is, with modern pickup wiring (as opposed to the original 50-52 wiring) if Leo had wired it that way back then what do you think the neck pickup would have been/sound like etc
    Purely hypothetical but I’m sure interested what the forum may think
    Thanks
    Rick

    Title says Neck, copy says Bridge?

    I've never heard of an original 50s Tele bridge pup being 10k. More of a modern take on a classic design.
