The development of the Apollo Pickups T-Style set started with one simple question: is it possible to Redesign and Innovate a 60+ year old design? The short answer is yes.
This set features our own Vintage Redesigned stagger on the Bridge and Neck pickup. This ensures a superior balance in volume between the strings. We wound the neck pickup with Heavy Formvar wire, which makes it sound brighter then traditional Telecaster Neck pickups. To add even more brightness, we fitted the neck pickup with an open cover. The Bridge pickup is more classic voiced and is fitted with a copper baseplate. This ensures a lot of Twang and will help you cut right trough the mix. This set is wound RWRP (reverse wound/reverse polarity) for hum cancelling in positions 2 along the 3-way selector switch.
Like all our pickups, this set is waxpotted for ultimate tone without the nasty microphonics. Heavily recommended for anyone into rock, pop, country, blues, rockabilly and fingerpicking.

The T-Style reads 7.5 K in the Neck and 6.93 K in the Bridge. All sets have compensated output to match volume. The output reading for the Neck pickup reads higher than it actually sounds. This is due to the use of thinner 43-AWG wire on the Neck pickup.
This set is wound with Heavy Formvar wire on the Neck and Plain Enamel wire on the Bridge pickup. Magnets for both pickups are ALNICO V.
This set is complety waxpotted by hand to prevent microphonics.
