The CC Telecaster® '60 are scatter wound offering all the traditional vintage tone and clarity but without the noise!The pickups are extremely well matched, without the usual drop in volume when switching to the neck pickup. The bridge pickup sound is bright without being shrill. The neck pickup is fat and warm without being muddy. Those pickups have smooth attack, glassy warmth with full sweet sustain.
