Summary Vintage 55 Tele rhythm tone with a sweet treble response and a well-rounded low end. Neck Description The Antiquity 55 Tele Rhythm is a faithful reproduction of a 1955 Tele neck pickup. The bass response is full and round, and will add richness to your chords, while the specially calibrated hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets, and custom coil winding give the treble a smoother, more musical attack. Its great for big, bold rhythm playing, and percussive enough for classic country-style chicken pickin. Hand built in our Custom Shop, the Antiquity Tele Rhythm recreates the original look and sound from the early 50s. We use a custom aged, deep drawn cover, vintage push-back cloth wire, and each pickup is lacquered, and potted in lamp black paraffin wax like the originals.Pair with our Antiquity 55 Tele Lead pickup for the ultimate mid 50s style Tele.Use in any Ash or Alder body Telecaster and pair with our Antiquity Tele or Antiquity 55 Tele bridge. Bridge Description After early production of the flat-pole Telecaster lead pickup, in 1954 Fender began to manufacture them with raised D and G poles to provide a more even string response and output for those guitars with a 7.25" radius fretboard. You get the same bright, twangy tone as our flat pole Antiquity Tele Lead but with a little more edge. Each pickup is hand-fabricated and scatter-wound in our Custom Shop, and all parts are aged to give the look and sound of a pickup that has been played for decades. We use vintage style push back cloth wire, and they are all lacquered and potted in lamp black paraffin wax, just like they were in the 50s.
