  • Vintage Tone - Modern Innovation.

    This set was inspired by a really terrific 1951 Broadcaster set we stumbled upon.  They were nothing like any Tele set we ever heard.  So full, round and warm…really amazing.  Our painstaking design and testing process has yielded pickups that that sound great with tube amps, pedals, solid state amps, digital devices and even software. 

    Tonal Details:

    • Bridge Pickup is crisp & clear and as bright as a Tele bridge should be but is very full and round. It has the P90 roundness but the focus of a Tele Bridge,
    • Neck pickup has the softness of a nice vintage PAF. Its nice and smooth in the mids, warm & round in the lows without forgetting that it is still a neck Tele that needs to remain clear.
    • The Middle Position is so funky. Words cannot not describe the great tonal pleasure that is achieved by these two pickups working together. Jazz chords sound great in the middle, and lines have a really cool voice.
    • These pickups are warm Tele Pickups that are very clear and do not get muddy when you roll off the volume. They are bright enough that you may still need to roll off some tone to nail classic jazz tones.
    • These pickups have enough output to drive an amp and sound great when distorted, they are super smooth and can really nail that liquid fusion lead tone.

      How to Buy/Pricing

      Tele Pickups cost $249.99 - Pickups typically ship within 7 days of your order.  To order click the "Add to Cart" at the top of the page.

      We've tried to work ahead and keep a few sets of each style of pickups ready or almost ready to ship. Our building process takes a little longer than most pickup winders and we have rigorous testing that is performed on all pickups before they ship. This includes sound test. The goal is pickups that will not only inspire you when you get them but also 20 or 30 years down the road. So even though we might be able to get your pickups shipped within in a week or so, you should know the process of making your pickups likely started several weeks ago. 

      Players with good ears seem to hear the difference right away. We are sure you will appreciate the attention to detail when you hear your new pickups.
