When we decided to go for the vintage Tele® sound, we knew we had to do more than just copy a forty-year-old design. We wanted pickups that captured the best elements of our favorite Broadcaster® and Telecaster® sounds — and then some. The Twang King™ pickups have unequalled response to pick attack: light playing produces a soft, quiet tone and hard picking creates a harder, louder, and more dynamic sound than any comparable single-coil. We accomplished this with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. The neck pickup comes with a chrome cover, and the bridge model has a ferrous base plate. Both pickups are wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

DiMarzio 6" Str-Right Angle Pedalboard Cable (Black or Red)
DiMarzio Pedal Board Cables allow players to connect multiple effects pedals together. Our custom low capacitance cables have a dual-layered shield consisting of an extruded carbon jacket plus a copper braid shield. This combination delivers 98% isolation from external electrical noises. For added protection, our cable is covered in a resilient nylon over braid that protects from cymbal drops and other common stage and studio damage. DiMarzio uses Switchcraft ¼” ends (made in the USA) encapsulated in a super-tough butyrate resin that permanently bonds the plug to the cable. The system is so rugged and durable that DiMarzio Pedal Board Cables carry a lifetime warranty.
DiMarzio True Velvet Middle Standard Strat
It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet™ was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. We combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The True Velvet™ Neck and Middle models have the same specs except for reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The True Velvet™ Middle comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

D'Addario EPN110 Pure Nickel, Regular Light (10-45)
EPN110's combine the playability of D'Addario's best selling light gauge set with a warmer, vintage tone. D'Addario XL Pure Nickel strings look back to the '50s, when nickel was the primary alloy found in electric guitar strings. Pure nickel strings would be supplanted by nickelplated steel in the '60s when guitarists required brighter tone and enhanced magnetism. Pure Nickel brings back the richer, warmer timbres found in traditional blues, classic rock, rockabilly, and more. String Gauges: Plain Steel .010, .013, .017, Nickel Wound .025, .035, .045
