Bear Retro rockers, a new range designed around classic timeless looks, simple lines and configurations. They will feel like a familiar old friend, gently carved and hand French polished to be lived in, lightweight, super slick neck and set up, tremendous sounds from carefully chosen pickups, many vintage themselves. I want these guitars to feel like coming home, inspiring and comfortable in equal measure, old songs tumble from the pickups, and new ones appear round the corner.
Left handed Solid alder body with hand crafted copper filled knobs and copper decoration, a hand carved customised bridge. Lovely weight, deep tortoise shell binding dividin the turquoise front and silver grey back, maple fingerboard
Iron Gear steel 2 tele bridge pickup which has a stunning double coil capability operated on the push pull tone knob, this switched between a hot 60’s tele bridge, and a classic wiry 50’s tele tone, so gives great flexibility and tones from one pickup.
They say “The Steel Twin II, features dual coil pickups for bridge positions. If you want to hot-rod your Tele®, then you won't find a better way to do it than with an IronGear Steel Twins.
This pickup provides you with all of the clarity and finesse of the Steel Foundry standard pickup twined with the extra poke of the Steel Foundry Overwound all in one pickup!
The Steel Twin's two separate coils can be easily managed with a standard switched pot, and having the extra boost of the overwound coil at your fingertips is truly exhilarating!
Note that this is not a humbucker, or a "noiseless" pickup. It's a true single-coil in both low and high output modes and gives all of the clarity you'd expect from a Telecaster® pickup.”
