This Tele Deluxe features 2 Original Vintage Seth Lover-designed known as "Wide Range" humbuckers with "Cunife" (Copper/Nickel/Ferrite) magnetised pole-pieces, each with an independent volume and tone control, and a 3-way toggle switch that activates the neck pickup in the up position, the bridge pickup in the down position, and both pickups in the middle position.
