Our vintage output Palo Duro set deliver pure American T-style tone with distinctive twang and a balanced, 3D-like tone with greater clarity than modern-output, high-wind pups. The bridge pickup is wound with 42awg copper wire, potted in beeswax and paraffin and includes a copper-clad steel baseplate. The neck position receives 7800 winds of 43awg copper wire, is lightly potted in wax, and has a chrome cover. This set is the perfect upgrade for any Tele® style rig!
