And since its one of our patented Stack pickups, its totally quiet. Perfect for players who want to add just a little more output and warmth without losing the classic Tele lead tone. Pair with our Vintage Rhythm Stack for a versatile setup. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Hot Stack uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, 4-conductor lead wire, and is wax potted for squeal free operation.
