BASED ON PLAYER REQUESTS FOR TELECASTER® TONES FROM SPECIFIC ERAS AND BACKED UP BY METICULOUS RESEARCH, THE BLACKGUARD TELE® SERIES IS A COLLECTION OF FOUR CLASSIC TELE® SETS RANGING FROM THE ORIGINAL 'BLACKGUARD' TELES® OF 1950 THROUGH TO LATER 1968 MODELS. For a very short period in '52 both bridge and neck coils were wound with 42AWG plain enamel, and the Flat 52 set replicates this with a brighter, tighter sounding bridge coil and an open, almost Strat-like neck tone. Utilising the slightly thinner, copper plated steel baseplate introduced in late '51, whilst staying with a flat profile magnet design and deep drawn neck cover, the tone has a defined snap in the bass and authentic, full twang. The Flat '52 is a very unique and versatile Tele® set capable of a vast range of clean and driven vintage tones.
