This is a unique pickup.  It is a Don Mare rewind of a Fender Japan '50s reissue Telecaster bridge pickup... with a Hamel baseplate.  If you don't know who Don Mare and Alan Hamel are... well, they're among the best pickup winders in the world. Hamel is no longer in the business... in any case, this pickup started life as a '50s reissue from a Made in Japan Tele.  A very good pickup, which was made into a very great pickup by Don Mare.  Mare is known for having studied Roy Buchanan's instruments, and this pickup is rewound to his 2324 'Nancy' specs.  If you look at the bottom plate, you can see his signature, and some other writing... which says 'MIJ Rewind... 506 Redu 2324 specs.' Oh, and the bottom plate is a zinc coated plate from one of Alan Hamel's pickups.  What can I say?  You'll never see another one like this.  Don Mare's pickups are known for their tone - they cut, they bloom, they breathe, but they don't do the icepick thing.  Check out the reviews on Harmony Central.  If you want to nail the Buchanan sound, this is the pickup to get.  Make that project Tele into something special!

The pickup is in excellent condition.  Leads are nice and long, with the vintage style push-back wrap.  A quality pickup in every way.

I accept Paypal, shipping is $10 flat rate in CONUS, others pay more depending on location.  I will not end the auction early for anybody, so please don't ask.
