Seymour Duncan APTR-1 Alnico II Pro, Rhythm (neck, RW/RP) chrome-plated
APTR-1 Alnico II Pro Rhythm - pickup for Tele®
For brighter toned instruments (electric guitars), works especially well with maple fingerboards.
The sand cast Alnico 2 magnets and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the Alnico II Pro. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the Vintage '54, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response making it well suited to brighter instruments. Comes with a (single conductor) waxed cloth hookup cable.
Often used in the rhythm position and matched with a higher output lead pickup like the STL-2 Hot. The Rhythm pickup is RW/RP relative to the lead pickup for hum canceling when both pickups are used together.
The Alnico II Pro Pickup is available for both rhythm (neck) position (APTR-1) and lead (bridge) position (APTL-1).
