Due to the nature of Raw Nickel, Raw Nickel may contain slight cosemetic defects or abrasions.


We recommend using 2-Conductor With Shield Lead when purchasing a single pickup. 2-Conductor lead allows you to reverse the phase should you have phase issues. Learn About Lead Choice


While we do our best to match double-white bobbins, there may be subtle differences in color due to different dye lots from the manufacturer.

A Note On Soundclips:

Our Sound Clips are played from the Neck first and the Bridge last. Please note the Waveforms when comparing – the third “waveform” will be the Bridge pickup.

Be mindful when selecting outputs

The Wide Range humbucker is a strong pickup in terms of output. We recommend the High Output or Steel Pole 43, or the Split Blade or Split Steel Pole to match. The Vintage Hot, Blues Special and Steel Pole 42 will sound a bit out of balance, output-wise.

    Product FAQ's

    These are frequently asked questions about our Prewired Telecaster Custom ’72 Pickguard. If you have a question that you don't see listed here, click "Ask A Question" in the Quick Links section above.

    • Which Tone Cap do I select?

      We always recommend 0.022mfd as the Tone Cap value. A larger capacitance value means more roll-off, a lower capacitance value means less roll-off.

    • Can I return this pickguard?

      No – all pickguards are built to order, and are non-returnable.

    • Can you coil-split the Wide Range Humbucker?

      While it’s possible, we don’t recommend it. There are two main reasons why:

      1. The Wide Range Humbucker consists of two low-wind coils. These coils by themselves don’t produce a usable output.
      2. Half of the Coil’s magnets are under the cover, without the ability to adjust them easily. This will yield an unbalanced tone.
