Telecaster Bridge Pickups 1950-1969 - Ask Zac 52

April 17, 2020

This is a walkthrough of Broadcaster/Esquire/Nocaster/Telecaster bridge pickups from 1950-1969. Thanks to Ron Ellis for his invaluable help in making this video. 2-weeks ago, I released an episode on pickups, and I found I had included some erroneous information on Broadcaster pickups. I immediately pulled the video from YouTube, and have now re-shot it with the correct information.

Gear for this video:

1967 Telecaster - stock except for steel compensated saddles, and the tone control is wired to the bridge pickup only.

Strings: Ernie Ball 10,13,15,24,32,42

Pick: Blue Chip TPR 35 RB

Amp: 1967 Deluxe Reverb amp with Celestion V30 speaker
