Pickup Kit for Tele Neck

About This Item

Now you can build your own guitar pickups from the ground up: go for the vintage sound or wind it your own way for custom tone!

Choose Alnico 5 or Alnico 2 magnets:
Alnico 2 magnets give a warmer tone and low end response with smooth, singing highs. Many builders use them in the bridge pickups of solidbodies.
Alnico 5 produces a brighter tone with a tighter low end and stinging highs. They're great for neck position pickups, to help keep the tone clear without getting muddy.

    Pickup Kit for Tele Neck includes
  • Black fiber bobbin flatwork
  • Brass eyelets
  • Polepieces ready to magnetize (instructions included, Alnico 2 magnets are marked red on one end to tell them apart from Alnico 5's)
  • Black and white push-back wire
  • Mounting screws
  • Compressible tubing for height adjustment
Polepiece spacing 2.000" (50.17mm)
Pole to pole
(measured on centers)
0.400" (10.03mm)

Matching Tele Rhythm Pickup Cover is available.

Pickup Kit for Tele Neck

(Customer's Reviews)

great sounding, easy to work with kit. Loved the result but i think it would be cheaper considering that the cover it's not included


great kit !

(Customer's Reviews)

Still love those kits. I purchased almost every single one of them. But why starting to sell cover and pickup separately?


Great kit

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great pickup kit. It's a bit difficult to put the magnets in the holes, but once you get in right it's really solid. Built a Tele neck pickup with plain enamel wire... Great sound, and this is only the second pickup I build!
