From Ron Ellis -
Standard 2 Wire.
50B is a vintage recreation of the earliest broadcaster pickups. It has wonderful dimensional harmonics surrounding fundamental notes. The 50B Broadcaster has more harmonic content, compression, and bloom in the upper mids and top end vs the more fundamental 52T bridge. It captures the bite and energy of early 50s broadcaster pickups using exact materials found in those same pickups.
When you think of the 50B, think of Roy Buchanan, Keith Richards and Mike Campbell sounds. The 50B is well suited for rock, country, and for artists focusing on top-end tonality.
