Between the lushness of our NVT-A3 and the ballsy character of our NMT, you will find the sweet and natural tone of our standard vintage Tele. The NVT has a warm, wholesome, and characteristic sound that could be described as the Goldilocks zone of Telecaster tone: not too hot, not too cool. The era-correct specs of this pickup’s design give it its awesome vintage flavor, and will not disappoint any player who is looking for a complex tone that doesn’t diverge in any way from traditional Tele character. Through the dynamic spectrum of a full bodied neck and a supple, crooning bridge, your guitar will produce tonal lullabies that have the power to hypnotize any audience caught listening as you strum your way to sonic nirvana.

History: Naturally, the NVT was the first Tele pickup made available from Nordstrand. Once we were able to isolate the dynamic character of traditional Tele tone, we were then able to expand our creativity to models such as the NVT-A3 and NMT. This makes the NVT an integral piece in the growth of our pickup catalogue, which, in our minds, leaves it in a place that is—just like its tone—warm, and close to our hearts.
