Seymour Duncan APTL-3JD Jerry Donahue Model for Telecaster - Lead
Vintage-hot Tele lead pickup that balances a sweet, musical treble attack with traditional Telecaster twang.
Tele master Jerry Donahue of Hellecasters fame needed a pickup to make his touring guitars sound like his prized 52 Telecaster. The result is a warm lead pickup that uses alnico 2 rod magnets and a special coil wind for increased sustainability and output. The raised D & G poles mirror the fretboard radius for nice even string response. Single notes are soft, sweet, and musical, while the low notes have just the right amount of articulate Tele snap to balance things out. Pair with the Alnico II Pro Tele neck pickup! The authentic look and sweet sound are brought together by waxed cloth hookup wire, standard .187″ diameter hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets, and a copper plated steel bottom plate. Like all of Seymour Duncan's pickups, it is then potted in wax formulation for squeal free performance.
