Monty's Guitars '53 Telecaster Nickel Pickup Set

Brilliant Recreations of Pickups Used in the Original Telecasters


The ’53 Telecaster pickups are brilliant recreations of the pickups that were used in the original Telecasters, but with a fresh updated twist. The variation here features a Nickel finish.

Early 50’s Telecaster Sound

The bridge pickup offers bite and the world-renowned Telecaster twang, while the neck pickup provides wonderful warm clarity. This results in a tone that stays bright without sounding thin. The set is also very articulate and combines for a top of the line middle position.

Differing Pickup Wire Gauges

Mixing gauges of pickup wire doesn’t have a downside here; both are extremely well-balanced meaning there won’t be a jump in volume when swapping between the pickups.

Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Originals

Our sonic recreations of real vintage pickups, the Originals series is the bread and butter of Monty’s pickup universe. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to see, repair and play countless examples of basically every vintage pickup imaginable. While not every old pickup is particularly good (in fact, we’ve seen some absolute shockers in our time), the best of them are simply divine. We’ve worked out what it is that makes these tonal titans tick and distilled their essence into each and every one of our originals series pickups. If you’re after pure vintage tone, these are the pickups for you.
