After a brief stint as the Broadcaster followed by an even briefer stint as the non-labelled "Nocaster", 1952 became the year of the Telecaster! What a year. The pickups in these first-year Teles were virtually unchanged from the smokin’ hot Broadcaster pickups.
Hand-wound good and hot with a distinct scatter pattern and equipped with bright & spanky Alnico III magnetic pole-pieces, these sweeties are simultaneously bright & lively and big & juicy. Yep, this is the ultimate "blackguard" Tele tone, period.
