Reset Options

A higher wind on Alnico III magnets makes our Hot Classics a must for the rock and blues player who wants more edge from their Telecasters. Hot Classics have a stronger midrange, thicker bass response and a raunchy upper register. The Alnico III magnets offer great note separation, even for chord work using boost and overdrive pedals. The neck pickup features a Nickel-silver cover for incredible tonal transparency (no more muddy sounds) whilst the bridge pickup mimics some of the best hot Broadcaster pickups of yesteryear. These have been our best-selling pickup sets over the last few years, and now power thousands of Telecasters around the world. A grounded full size copper plated baseplate and black string wrap adds to the tone and completes the look and feel.


Covers: The neck pickup comes in a choice of two finishes: Polished Nickel (Model TRT2N-NK), and Gold (TRT2N-GD).  UPDATE – we are out of Gold covers and working with a new supplier to get the plating quality we need. Therefore, gold cover single pickups and sets will not be available until December 2019.
