Twisted Telecaster Pickups
Ensuring consistent, amazing sound, this Post Mod Telecaster is equipped with a set of two Twisted Telecaster pickups that are hand wound and tailored to their specific positions on the guitar.
Alnico 5 magnets are used, providing increased focus and improved dynamics with the polepieces being flush-mounted to give you even response across all the strings.
The neck pickup has formvar-coated magnet wire which adds a certain brightness and clear glassiness to your tone while the enamel-coated bridge pickup magnet wire gives you warmer, vintage-style tones.
A taller bobbin has been used on the neck pickup so that it can hold more windings while the bridge pickup has a shorter bobbin, giving you a darker sounding, full-bodied midrange.
Crafting the Custom Shop Postmod Tele
Making up its distinctive, single-cutaway body of the Telecaster, Fender have used Ash. Known for its well-defined midrange and strong low end, Ash is strong and dense and is a very popular body wood for Fender guitars.
The cutaway provides easy reach of the higher frets; essential for wailing solos and other adventurous playing styles, while being a key point in defining the iconic Telecaster profile.
Attached to the body is a quartersawn Maple neck which features the popular ‘60s style oval “C” shape profile for a comfortable and easy-playing grip.
Atop the neck Is a traditional Rosewood fretboard with a 9.5” – 12” compound radius. This compound radius has the fingerboard curving more dramatically at the nut to make holding chords easier while it flattens out on approaching the neck joint for great low-action bends without fretting out.
High quality Sanko 6105 fret wire is used. This the most popular fret wire in used by the Fender Custom Shop and being both narrow and tall it offers great playability.
