52T is a recreation of the first Blackguard Telecaster bridges. The pickup was created as an exact replica of an original prototype from 1951. The 52T has the Blackguard sound; smokey, woody and wiry classic tone. It has a beautiful compression, bloom, and overall feel. The 52T is fundamental, evenly balanced across the tonal spectrum.
52T covers a wide range of classic Tele sounds. Think Vince Gill, Julian Lage, Steve Wariner, Brent Mason, Jimmy Olander.
