Klein Epic 1952 Tele Pickup Set
The Klein Epic 1952 Tele pickup set is so authentic that we had a customer who owns an authentic 52 Tele and bought the Klein set for a recent Tele tell us that he cannot tell the difference.
It's no accident. Klein pickups are clones of the real thing, from the custom made magnets, to the wire, parts, and winding. This produces an amazing vintage pickup. Every set of Kleins that we hear blows us away and if you surf the guitar forums you'll see we are not alone.
The original 52 magnets, as duplicated in this Klein set, were Alnico 3 and had less compressed midrange, and more warmth, as opposed to the Alnico 5 found in most current ones. Wound to the vintage specs, the Epic 1952 Tele set has a smooth, clear neck pickup and a chunky treble bite to the bridge pickup.
