The Vintage Tallboy Twangbucker from Rio Grande satisfies a major need for guitarists who own Teles* or Tele style guitars, but want more versatility. The Vintage Tallboy Twangbucker gives you plenty of that without sacrificing the total "Twang" required by today's country, blues, rock, and other purveyors of twang! With a push/pull pot or mini toggle, a huge humbucking sound can be achieved which will rival, if not blow away, most other 'buckers out there. In addition, in the straight single coil Tele mode, you get the super enhanced tones of Rio Grande's Vintage Tallboy Tele replacement pickup. Custom Made Bridge is included.  The bridge is made of high quality stainless steel with six individual saddles for fine intonation control. Available in a matte low gloss finish to match other Rio Grande hardware and pickups P.S. Just imagine what one of these babies will do to an Esquire!......A5.....16K

Great Pickups!
Just got these installed, and couldn't be happier! As a big fan of the classic Tele single coil bridge pickup tone, I was worried the replacement single coil would be a little too aggressive, but the desire to add a humbucker option was enough to give it a shot. I have to say, I'm blown away. I love the sound of both the single and humbucker. Awesome Tele "spank" in single coil mode, and just the right amount of growl with the humbucker. This is now my #1 guitar!

One note - I wired the pickup into a 5-way switch instead of a push-pull pot, with the classic Tele pickup options in the first 3 positions and the humbuckers options in the last two. Just a more comfortable set-up for me, especially when playing live.

I haven't seen this wiring diagram online anywhere, so if anyone wants it, let me know and I'll share. Thanks, Rio Grande!
