Like the snaarling Lap steels of old, the bridge pickup will crunch down on your ears like no other. Literally biting them off in the process. Quite possibly our gnarliest Tele bridge pickup. Not for the squeamish, its blade design will drop right in. Never feel like your bridge position is too "thin" again......

This "Charlie Christian" style Tele neck pickup will add new fullness and body to the neck position of your Tele, or any other guitar. The 3 point mount allows for height adjustment and tilting within the smallest possible footprint. Not a "single" coil, per se,....not a P-90 or Humbucking either,  something different and awesome!!!  Our customers have been asking us for years to build it. Alnico 5 mags for warmth and power.  The nickel plated high carbon steel blade  has a 12" radius which will accommodate virtually all guitars.

Baby Texas BBQ

Honey, I shrunk the pickups!!! The long awaited "BABY" Texas and BBQ humbuckings are in. After much tinkering around and "beaucoup" prototypes, we are introducing these l'il beauties for your tonal consumption. With outputs of 10k and 12k respectively, the Baby TX & BBQ are head and hands above other more anemic offerings out there in guitardom. Since this type of pickup was introduced in the 60's in various forms (Epiphones, Firebirds) and the 70's Les Paul Deluxe, they have always come up short in power and presence. Those days are gone now with these "babies" entering the field. Included are over sized polepieces, radiator baseplate, and a number of finishes including chrome, nickel, and toasted nickel. A "no holes" cover option is also available for applications where a historic look is required. For applications requiring three pickups, use a Baby BBQ in the bridge and two Baby TX's. Pickups are double wax potted and 2 conductor braided cable is standard..4 conductor optional. Muscle, output, and full sized polepieces combine to bring it all home....Baby BBQ is recommended for bridge position...12k
