  • Kent has meticulously replicated this Telecaster®/Esquire® model pickup set from a famous modified 1959 Fender® Esquire® with such accuracy of tone that the estate who owns the instrument endorsed them. The unique voicing of a 1959 Esquire® bridge pickup with the added vintage Tele® neck pickup gives a warmth and balance you will fall in love with. These pickups have lower resistance and power than the previously endorsed 1966 Tele set and convey a vintage tone and balance that is a favorite of builders. The neck pickup has a chrome cover with standard black bobbin top in bridge position and are available in either Alnico 3 for that warm and woody just pulled out from under the bed tone or Alnico 5 magnets that are a bit more articulate and crisp like they were when new.
