Description

I build these pickups to order with an approximate 6 week turnaround after receipt of full payment.  Please contact me prior to purchase for an accurate ETA.

The Big Fat Tele set is a marriage of two of my popular big bangers all in the one set.  The neck is my Vintage ’60s soap bar P-90 and the bridge is my 9k powerhouse Classic Tele bridge.  The neck is reverse wound for hum canceling in the middle position and all 3 positions have very distinctly different tones.  This set has a big bold fat tone and also the bite when you dig in.  A nice full sounding neck for rhythm and a powerful bridge pickup for some bite.  A very versatile out of the box Tele set for those looking for something different.

“Classic” Telecaster bridge pickup

My Classic series bridge has a big clear bright tone with a tight bottom end and it breaks up nice with some drive.  For this pickup I took the standard 50s flat pole design with alnico 3 magnets and have wound it using plain enamel wire.  You can get a nice clean traditional tone as well as a great biting drive, this pickup is very popular.

Vintage ’60s P-90 neck:

My “Vintage ’60s” P-90 soap bars are based on the classic ’60s Gibson winds.  I wind my pickups with vintage correct 42 AWG Plain enamel wire and use low gauss alnico 5 magnets.  These pickups have a big deep fat bottom end with a nice clear defined top end.  These pickups break up nice with drive with a big fat tone and have a sharp attack with a heavy pick stroke.  They are suitable for all genres of music from jazz to punk and will not disappoint.  I use a shielded Gibson style braided lead as standard.   I can install a twin core shielded plastic insulated lead for flexibility of phasing with other pickups by request.  I wind my neck units clockwise with south up polarity in line with Gibson and Epiphone pickups, they will noise cancel with my bridge units.
