Seymour Duncan STL1B Vintage Broadcaster Pickup

Recreate the sounds of the first ever Telecaster pickup with this vintage pickup. It replicates the fat, vintage tone of the 1948 pickup.

The first Telecaster pickup (1948) had an unprecedented edgy sound and great sustain. Leo Fender called it the Broadcaster, and Seymour Duncan made one exactly like it. The STL-1b duplicates this fat, most sought-after vintage sound. The pole pieces are larger diameter, Dun-Aged magnets. Replace both your rhythm and lead pickups to get the classic Broadcaster sound that started a legend.

Only familiar with Fender Tele pu's and I much prefer Seymour's. Would like to try some Fralin's someday. But yes, they're the best so far.
Nice warm, edgy twang with plenty of slice. Play the brige pu alone w/treble rolled off slightly thru a Mesa and it sounds great. The rhythm pu is awesome too, sweet, fat and warm.
No frills, just great sound
Had these pu's in three different Teles and they sounded grat in all three- better than the stocks.
Had these pu's probably 5 yrs. and they've been in and outside, hot and cold, damp and dry. Had beer, sweat, Diet Coke, {I don't drink anymore} on them and they still sound great.

Called Seymour's a couple of times. Great guys. Straight forward advice and help.
