The 69R 'CBS era' Telecaster rhythm pickup

There are no soundclips for this pickup, because the only change from the 65R pickup is substituting
vinyl covered hookup wire for the 65Rs vintage style cloth covered hookup wire. The pickups sound the same.
If you would like to hear this pickup, please refer to the 65R page for soundclip files.

This rhythm pickup was used in Telecasters made from 1968 to 1982

  First, we start out with a pair of our own hand machined Forbon (vulcanized fiber) bobbin plates made right in house.
Then we assemble the bobbin with the correct size Alnico V magnets and insulate the bobbin with a coat of nitrocellulose lacquer
to protect the coil windings. Then we wind the pickup's coil with period correct 43 gauge plain enamel wire, install modern style vinyl covered hookup wire,
and pot the pickup in nitrocellulose lacquer  'just like they used to' to protect the coil and reduce microphonics. Once the potting coat is dry,
the cover is installed, the pickup is tested for tone, and a datasheet with the pickup's electrical measurements are included with the pickup.
This pickup is also available in RW/RP (reverse magnetic polarity and coil winding direction) for a 'humcancelling' effect
when used with a matching Angeltone lead pickup at no extra cost.

This pickup is normally sold with a nickeled pickup cover.
Add $5.00 USD for a gold plated pickup cover
