Based on player requests for Telecaster® tones from specific eras and backed up by meticulous research, the Blackguard Tele® Series is a collection of four classic Tele® sets ranging from the original 'blackguard' Teles® of 1950 through to later 1968 models.
For a very short period in '52 both bridge and neck coils were wound with 42AWG plain enamel, and the Flat 52 set replicates this with a brighter, tighter sounding bridge coil and an open, almost Strat-like neck tone. Utilising the slightly thinner, copper plated steel baseplate introduced in late '51, whilst staying with a flat profile magnet design and deep drawn neck cover, the tone has a defined snap in the bass and authentic, full twang. The Flat '52 is a very unique and versatile Tele® set capable of a vast range of clean and driven vintage tones.
Blues, Country, Jazz, Funk, Indie, Pop, Britpop, Classic Rock.
The Flat '50 and Flat '52 set are well suited to maple boards or any application that requires extra output and a fatter tone. The '55 and '68 Stagger sets are best suited rosewood board Teles or any Tele that would benefit extra cut in the highs.
