SCPB-1 Vintage Single Coil Configuration

Vintage-correct true single-coil. Perfect for country, pop, surf, blues, and classic rock.

A tribute to the old early-'50s "Tele Bass." Uses the same bobbins, magnets, wire, and black yarn for the same look and same bright tone as the original.

Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable.

No logo.

Used by Artists Including

  • Gary Hewitt / Gary Allan

SCPB-2 Hot Single Coil Configuration

Hot single-coil. Recommended for pop, blues, classic rock and heavy rock.

A high-output take on the Vintage. In this case, we increase the coil windings for higher output, more punch, and a thicker bottom-end than the Vintage.

Includes Basslines logo.


  • Length = 2.88"(73.1mm) Width = 0.768"(19.5mm)

SCPB-3 Configuration

High output true single-coil. Recommended for blues, classic rock, garage, heavy rock, classic metal and nu-metal.

The quarter-inch diameter pole pieces add more string sensitivity than the Hot model. Aggressive tonal response with strong bottom end and lots of mids. Adds tremendous tonal versatility to a single pickup instrument. Includes Basslines logo.

Often used together with STC-3M3 or -3M4 Tone Circuits for optimal tonal control.


  • Length = 2.868"(72.8mm) Width = 0.766"(19.5mm)
