    Product Description

    The Nashville Studio™ replacement pickup for Telecaster® guitars started out in the Seymour Duncan® Custom Shop. Seymour designed it for some of Nashville's top studio guitarists like session-ace Brent Mason. Not merely a "Country" pickup, it's easily adaptable to any musical style. It achieved such phenomenal popularity, the pickup giant decided to release it to the public. This marks the debut of Seymour Duncan's Five-Two™ pickup series.

    Seymour uses alnico in so many of his pickups because its lower string pull and softer magnetic field improve sustain and help smooth out the tone. The Five-Two is the pickup guru's first product line to combine multiple alnico magnet types strategically placed to deliver a bright and springy bottom end and a full and smooth top end.

    Here's how the Five-Two pickup works: Seymour utilizes alnico 5 magnets on the three low strings. This adds more definition and punch to the bottom end. Seymour uses alnico 2 magnets on the three high strings. This gives the player a warm and smooth top end without sacrificing that great Tele® twang. Telecaster® players often complain that their low strings sound "mushy" and their high strings are too bright. The Five-Two concept counteracts this phenomenon. If you look closely at the photo, you can also see the difference between the two magnet types.

    The result is an all-around, extremely well-balanced, Tele pickup. The lead pickup has traditional output and vintage appointments such as black yarn wrapping and waxed cloth hookup cable. The chrome-covered neck version is reverse wound, reverse polarity to create a hum-canceling effect when used together with the bridge pickup.

    Like all Seymour Duncan pickups, all Five-Two pickups are entirely hand built in the company's Santa Barbara, California facility and include mounting hardware and wiring diagrams.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    This pickup mounted in the guitar easily without modification. It sounds OK but I'm not so sure it's any better than a stock Fender pickup. It appears to be reverse wound reverse phase as the two pickups together are pretty quiet. Supposedly this pickup is wound with a combo of Alnico 3 and 5 magnets. The hype would have you believe it was built in the heavens. No better than a Fender pickup.
