The Area Hot T Bridge has that Tele bridge pickup sound but with the same EQ as a vintage PAF! Because it has the classic Tele 6-magnet configuration, it’s not simply a PAF reduced to Tele size. The sound is more detailed and controlled. The plain strings both sing and sting, and the wound strings have a dynamic quality that’s halfway between a humbucker and a P90. The Area Hot T Bridge uses Alnico 2 magnets like our other Area models, and works well with either 250K or 500K controls.
