Pre-CBS specs for a more "organic" sound. Heavy formvar 42 AWG wire and alnico 5 magnets.
'72 Wide Range Deluxe Replica Set
'72 Wide Range Deluze set. Slotted alnico magnets, having the original magnetic configuration. The best materials, including the original dimensions coils and magnetizable steel plate.
Finally, after extensive testing, I present for sale a replica of the Wide Range pickup with the 72 original specifications. The characteristic sound of these pickups is obtained thanks to the screw-shaped magnet and small magnetizable metal plate that is installed between the base plate and the bobbins. The design resembles two small tele® bridge pickups wired in series, as if it were a humbucker, but achieving a fat sound with a wide frequency spectrum.
The technical specs are:
Wax-potted in a beeswax / paraffin mix
Output: 9,9 Kohm (neck) / 10.7 Kohm (bridge)
Copper wire: 42 AWG Enamel
Slotted alnico magnets
Bobbins with the original measures
"Intermediate" magnetizable iron plate
Base-plate and cover made of "Nickel silver" (chrome finish)
To use with 500 Kohm potentiometer or even 1 megohm if you want the true 70s Tele Custom sound

This is a true alnico wide range pickup
Check the las picture (from left to right: CuNiFe, AlNiCo, FeCrCo 2, FeCrCo 5)
AlNiCo can't be treaded that's why Fender uses CuNiFe, not due to sound properties, just because is the one that can be threaded.Nowdays a lot of makers do the pickups with threaded magnets and market his wide range as alnicos but it can't be done. They use FeCrCo, one of the two types that you can see at the right in the picture. I have develop a method to make alnicos to look like screws (without the thread) and now I'm using several alnico grades to make Wide ranges pickups.
