ALNICO II MAGNETS FOR GREAT SUSTAIN.
Our Vintage 90 set uses Alnico II magnets for great sustain and unrivalled clarity. Played clean, they deliver authentic single coil tones but with more girth and body than a Strat or Tele pickup can deliver. Crank up the gain for a thick yet clear and articulate distortion tone.
Construction-wise, each Vintage 90 pickup offers incredible attention to detail. Nickel-Silver is used for the baseplate, and the hook-up wire is vintage-spec braided single conductor wire. The neck and bridge pickups are a RWRP set, offering hum-cancelling performance in mid-position when used with a standard three-way toggle. Black and Cream covers are available as standard.

Installed into neck position of my Tokai ‘84 telecaster - what a beautiful tone. Great for jazz (my main genre) and blues. Have also used Tonerider Tele Hot Classics previously - also very good
I installed these in a Fender Modern Player Thinline telecaster.I've tried a lot of different pickups and always come back to Tonerider.The quality is of a high standard and the price can't be beaten.
