Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster Pickups
Micro Alnico 3 I installed an American Standard, I also have the Original Vintage Alnico is also 3
The microphone is quite similar to severe Vintage Original, there is a slight difference in mediums, I think it sounds more dry, less generous, the gain is also lower
The bridge pickup is more rock, more pronounced mids are there more bass and still feel that the sound seems slightly raw and unadorned Crados
Kit is € 109 no regrets it's better than mics base (American Standard) the difference between the Original and Vintage Nocaster is the bridge pickup, then you feel the difference if the microphone is serious but difference is not very large, I recommend this mic for those who want a Telecaster with a more raw apple former

Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster Pickups
How long you use it?

For about a month.

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

No, not really. I based on the reviews on various forums.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

So already, let's start from the beginning. Box. She is very nice, any thick plastic, we see the microphones well presented inside. It unpacks and it smells the quality right away. The vintage look is there, flat screws, rubber sheaths, son waxed fabrics, etc all there.
Then the sound ... This is the sound Tele, well-typed. The bridge pickup is slamming, acute but not garish. The neck pickup is banging too but differently. Very harmonious, metallic, soft and rough too. Combining the two is interesting, it helps blend the slamming of the bridge to the softness of the handle, it gives a strong presence of harmonics and a roundness appreciable. Well by equalizing the heights of each microphone, the result is really good.
FYI, I have mounted on a standard Fender Telecaster on which I have also changed easel, mechanical and electronics. I chose a condo for 33nF orange drop tone that blends well with these pickups.

How would you rate the quality / price?

I think good. For a little over 100 euros, we have good microphones (usually mounted on custom shop) quality that should last a lifetime.

With experience, you do again this choice?

I do not regret my choice but I must say I wish I could take or Lindy Fralin pickups Bareknuckle as deemed. But since I could not buy all the microphones to try them all, I think I made a good choice for the moment at least ... Maybe I will take Bareknuckle later, who knows ...
