Seymour Duncan STK-T3b / STK-T1n Vintage Stack pickup set for Tele
Vintage-voiced Hum-cancelling pickup. Perfect for traditional country, country pop, chicken pickin', rockabilly, blues, and classic rock.
All twang, no hum! That's what you get with Seymour Duncan's Vintage Stack for Tele. Designed with the needs of professional pickers in mind, these li'l brutes impart all of the classic twang of a vintage Tele with one very important distinction - no 60 cycle hum and virtually no noise. These pickups utilize Duncan's unique, hum canceling, Stack technology for unsurpassed quietness. A must for Tele players using tube amps.
The six pole piece construction gives the bridge pickup a bright, punchy sound, while retaining a vintage look - we even included black yarn. The neck model provides a smooth and round tone and uses a classic chrome cover.
These pickups are direct replacements for Tele. No guitar modification is necessary.
Available for both rhythm (neck) and lead (bridge) positions.
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
These are the amp settings:
About the Guitars: We used a '60's Classic Les Paul with a fresh set of American Flyer 10-46 gauge strings. We kept the pickup-to-string heights consistent between each change of pickups.
About the Amps: We employed the "highest common denominator" philosophy in our amp selection. For clean tones, we used a silverface Fender Super Reverb with stock 4x10 "blue frame" speakers. We kept the Bright Switch "On" throughout. For crunch tones, we used a well-worn Marshall JCM 800 50 watt master volume head through a new Marshall 1960A Celestion®-loaded 4x12 cabinet. We plugged into the High output. With both amps we close miked straight-on with SM-57s through a Soundcraft Spirit Folio Mixer.
