Our Standard Telecaster pickups use Alnico 5 magnets on the bass side (E-A-D) and Alnico 2 on the treble side (G-B-E). This maintains the bass response of a traditional Tele set while letting the treble strings "breathe" a little more with the lower magnetic pull of the Alnico 2 rod magnets. Doing this results in a creamier top end and less ice-picky response from the top strings, especially in the bridge position.
