Wilkinson Vintage Telecaster Pickups with Alnico V Magnets
This matched pair of vintage-voice Telecaster pickups are a fatihful reproduction of the original 60's pups, and are versatile enough to handle all music styles including Country, Blues, Rock and even Jazz.
Raised Alnico V pole pieces in the bridge ensure an authentic Tele "Quack", with the covered neck pickup producing classic warm bluesy tones.
The sound of these 60's replica pickups is incredible, even before you consider their price. They offer amazing vintage warmth and tone. The magnets really focus the magnetic field on your strings while the raised pole pieces of the bridge give you the traditional articulate sparkle. The set responds very well clean yet when pushed with overdrive, offer a smooth creamy tone. The set benefits from having a slightly hotter output than most standard Mexican and Squier pickups yet still provide a sweet quack in the bridge position and lovely creamy neck tones. All-in-all a thoroughly professional set-up, far beyond what the price-point suggests.

Bought these to upgrade a self build Tele project that I completed during lockdown. These pickups are exactly what I was expecting, (Powerful & clear). They sound extremely good at this price bracket. Recommended!
Northwest Guitars delivered completed my order in a timely fashion. I will be using them for future purchases.
I have used Wilkinson vintage pickups before. At their price point, they cannot be beaten.
Da ich großer Fan von Wilkinson Pickups bin habe ich dieses Paar für meine Telecaster bestellt. Und wieder muss ich sagen es gibt keine besseren Pickups in dieser, geschweige denn in der doppelten
Preisklasse. Und auch ein Lob an den Service von northwestguitars der Artikel wurde schnellstmöglich Versand und kam unversehrt bei mir an. Ich würde hier wieder bestellen.
Nice clear sound with no buzz. A vast improvement for the reasonable price from the pickups supplied in my Tele Kit build. Cheers.
out performs standard squire pick up
I bought these Wilkinson pickups to replace the "no-name" pickups in my Tele Style kit guitar. Great value for money and punch way above their weight.
Really sound good nice telly sound
I have several guitars with Wilkinson pickups and I find the single coils are usually good even if cheap. This one has a quite nice sound even on my cheap 12 strings tele.
