This Tele Blues Set will warm up any tele, giving you a warmer "strat" like neck tone and and classic tele bridge tone. The neck pickup was wound with blues in mind, starting with Alnico 5 magnets and 42awg Enamel wire, it takes away some of the harsh mids and gives you a nice, rounded tone that's warm and gives you great bass clarity with a 6.4h DC Resistance. The bridge pickup gives you classic Tele bridge tone, but is overwound for extra "oomph" cutting through the mix and driving the amp, depending on how hard you attack the strings. This responsive pickup has Alnico 3 magnets and 42awg Enamel wire much like it's counterpart, yet pulls some of the harsh high-end that is typical in teles, out to give you a slightly warmer tone. Excellent for blues and rock players looking for a little less of the tele "twang."Why We Love Benson Custom Pickups
Benson Customs is the byproduct of founder John Benson growing up in a large family on a tight budget with a resourceful father. John learned quickly from his father and at a young age figured out how to build the things he needed, such as guitars and pickups from scratch. In order to have full control over the tone and quality of his handmade instruments, he decided to make his own custom pickups. Soon after, they started to catch on due to their tone and quality. Today Benson Custom Handwounds is located in Lockport, New York and their pickups are in instruments worldwide and have been reviewed in many guitar forums such as Harmony Central. The focus of Benson Custom is customer satisfaction and all of their pickups are handwound, to their meticulous specs! We love the tone and feel these pickups give our guitars and would recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade their pickups or just give their guitar a fresh sound!
