Magneton Telenovela Deluxe – Ice Blue
UPGRADED - This Magneton Telenovela was originally built to try out a set of Fender's recently released Wide Range Humbuckers, the ones with the famous CuNiFe magnets that have been unavailable for over 40 years. To be honest, these pickups were disappointing, they were f***ing expensive, but they didn't sound at all like real WD's from the 70's - and yes, I had an original Tele Deluxe from the 70's for comparison.
So this guitar recently got an upgrade to the fantastic looking and sounding Gold Foil Wide Ranges from Mojo Pickups UK. Now it is one of the best sounding guitars in the range!
