David Allen Pickups - COLT '51 TELE Pickup Set - 1951 Telecaster Tone!
Colt '51 Tele Pickup Set
This set was based on an actual 1951 Fender Tele set that had "The Sound". We learned a few interesting facts on the examination of the set of pickups especially in the bridge. There were some minor physical differences that had a huge influence on the Tone. We had to have some custom material made to be able to create the bobbin and get tone of the original. It was worth the wait and cost of the materials to make this set. We wrapped the bridge with a twine that has a brownish color to look aged. The bridge will play bright but not harsh or brittle and have a nice tight bass and very even output string to string.
