The 69T (1968 to 1980) Telecaster lead pickup...

Soundclips 65R/69T used together (middle position) 69T (1969 Tele lead type) alone

This is the second 'CBS style' pickup design
as originally used in Telecasters from 1968 to 1980.

    First, we start out with a pair of our own hand machined Forbon (vulcanized fiber) black top and gray bottom 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 42 gauge plain enamel wire to original specification,
and overwrap the coil with a protective coat of white string. The pickup is now potted in a clear wax bath to solidify the coil and protect it,
a copper plated steel 'twang plate' is added, 'modern style' vinyl coated hookup wire is added to the pickup and the pickup is repotted
 to reduce microphonics. Once the pickup has cooled, it is tested for power, tone, and microphonics, and a data sheet is written for each pickup

    This pickup is also available in 'RW/RP' (reversed coil winding direction and magnetic polarity)
for players who want a 'humcancelling' effect in the middle pickup switch position when used
with the matching 65R rhythm pickup.
