Just the thing for you die hard Telecaster lovers. These overwound Tele pickups are constructed with Alnico 5 magnets and enamel coated magnet wire. The bridge pickup features height staggered magnets and a copper plated steel bottom plate for increased output, presence and midrange, while the nickel-silver cover on the neck pickup produces a clear warm tone that only a true Tele pickup can do. From Merle to Metal, the Texas Tele will demand their attention. Set of two.

Texas Tele Pickups

The pickups sound fantastic. One step dirtier than the stock pickups on the American Standard tele, they do a great job of ranging from a decent clean to a decent overdriven sound. In that sense I think they are more versatile than the stock American Standard pickups which more heavily trend towards the clean.
5/5

Excellent sound! Blues, rock and that Grand Ole Opry twang!

Put a set of these in a Squier Telecaster and it sounds exactly as I had hoped, and was expecting from the name. I'm very familiar with Billy Gibbon's Tele sounds and these babies will give it to you. That "Blue Jean Blues" sound is captured perfectly. Just the right amount of heat in these, overdrive sounds very good too on the bridge pup. But the neck pup (and the combo of both) is where the magic is. I wasn't sure if it would be there, but yes you still get the Tele twang big time. Setting your string action very low has a lot to do with that sound too and this rig pulls it off. So if' you're thinking about this too, I have no regrets spending this kind of money for the results I've gotten. Don't raise the pups as high as you might think you want to, you'll get a muddy sound. Lower them and they ring like a bell, there's definitely a sweet spot for both. My only complaint, the replacement screws they give you for the pickup height adjusters were slotted screws, not phillips. And no you can't use the screws that came out of the factory pups. I hate slotted screws close to fine woodwork. It's has to happen, a slip and a nick. Other than that I love these pickups, can't stop playing!
