Sometimes, even the most die-hard Tele fan wants to channel their inner Jimi. And we're here to help. Since the metal cover on a Telecaster neck pickup adds grittiness to the sound, we specially designed a custom nickel pickup cover for our Royal T to emulate the Stratocaster neck tone. We also use a special selection of magnet type and length, a unique wind, and 42-gauge heavy build coil wire typically used on Strat pickups. The result is a deeper, clearer, and punchier Strat-colored sound that combines the best of Blonde and Blackface tones. Try mixing with our Vintage T Series bridge pickup for spectacular results. Made with Alnico 5 magnets and vintage style cloth covered lead wire.
