Leo Fender created the Broadcaster model in his beginnings as a guitar maker around 1950. For the bridge pickup, he was inspired by models used for his lapsteels. It was a powerful pickup, of about 10 kO and with a thick, defined sound. The bridge pickup has flat alnico V magnets, 43 AWG plain enamel copper wire, and a steel plate at the bottom. As for the neck, the pickup is encapsulated in a nickel silver brass free cover. Alnico V magnets and 43 AWG plain enamel copper wire. Both pickups are wound in the modern way with RW/RP, being in phase with humbucking effect in the middle position. The end of the manufacture is completed with "lamp black" black waxpotting, as Leo Fender made their first pickups.
