Bare Knuckle Yardbird Telecaster Pickup Set
The name says it all. This set of Bare Knuckle Yardbird Tele pickups is designed to replicate the hard-edged blues-rock tone of the early Teles and the Esquire guitar made famous by Jeff Beck on the Yardbird recordings, and it does.
The coils of every Bare Knuckle pickup is scatterwound with varying gauges of enamelled copper wire, the thickness of the wire and type of wire insulation dependant upon the sound they are after. They wind the majority of their pickups with the traditional plain enamel wire used originally in the early days of pickup winding. Scatterwinding by hand can be time consuming but it has many advantages over conventional machine winding, not least a far superior sound.
We love being able to offer Bare Knuckle pickups to our customers.
