The classic form of Fender Telecaster was a very simple framework, which had a neck and fingerboard including a single piece of maple, which was bolted to an ash or alder body with both sides flat, the front and back. The hardware included the two single coil pickups, which were controlled by a three-way selector switch with volume and tone controls. Earlier, the pickguard was made of bakelite, which was later made with plastic and was fixed on the body with five screws at first but later on with eight screws. The bridge had three saddles, which were adjustable with the strings doubled up on each. This became a thrilling addition in the world if guitars and soon different companies followed its lead.
The only alnico Celestion is the "Alnico Blue." That speaker is the 12" speaker that came in the VOX AC30. It is generally regarded as one of the best speakers you can buy, but it is also one of the most expensive speakers you can buy, and it can only handle 15 watts. The rest of the Celestion line, including the 25 watt, G12M "Greenback," are ceramic magnet speakers, mostly 12" in size, and all known for their excellent rock tones. My favorites are the Greenbacks. If you need more power handling, the G12-65 is also a great sounding speaker. Like they say in the ad, the sound of Celestion is the sound of rock and roll.
This new style of pickup inadvertently gave birth to a new sound to guitars. The single coil pickup still is in wide use today. The single coil pickup has a cleaner or brighter sound. There is also less output on the single coil in comparison to its brother, the humbucker. The double coil or humbucking pickup tends to have more power and will have more bottom end or a bassier sound. Which pick is better is a matter of personal choice. Both of these picks have advantages and disadvantages.
The "Svetlana" brand name is now owned by Sovtek. In fact, Sovtek makes a copy of the SED "Winged C" 6l6 which is sold as the Svetlana 6l6. The SED and the Sovtek Svetlana are not the same tube (the getters are different), and they don't have exactly the same tone (the Svetlana is not quite as bright). But the two tubes are very similar, and the Svetlana costs almost half as much.
