Regardless of what type of tele you have, the Benson Custom Overwound Classic Set will give your tone new life and make you fall in love with your guitar all over again! Both pickups were hand-wound with that classic tele sound in mind but with a little bit extra output and low-end. To give this set a little more low end and output, Benson used Alnico 5 magnets in both pickups and wound them to be near matched resistance. The neck pickup comes in overwound at ~7.6kΩ and the bridge is overwound to ~7.7kΩ to give you a hotter pickup and both were wound TLTG to get you closer to the early tele tone in the middle position that is so sought after. Lastly, Benson put a flattop style nickel silver cover on the neck pickup to complete that 50's look and experience that these pickups are all about. Pick them up today and drop them in your tele, you won't regret it!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!
