Plankster & Big Boy Tele® Set
“I ordered this set back in 2015. They were placed into my #1 tele and have never left. Talk about versatility…these pickups can handle just about ANYTHING you can throw at them. I’ve played country, blues, rock, funk, jazz, r&b-even solo/ singer/ songwriter-type gigs a la Jeff Buckley. The Plankster can really go from smooth/ slinky, even jangly. But once you throw overdrive/ gain at it, it can compress and really ROCK! The Big Boy is my FAVORITE neck pickup I’ve ever had the pleasure to play. It’s never muffled, always round, woody, thick (in a GOOD way), and should you decide to ditch a pick and use your fingers these can make some of the most gorgeous sounds, just add spring reverb and delay. The middle position utilizing these two pickups is something to behold! You can get instant funk, country, soul and R&B sounds out of that position. I find myself riding on the middle position most nights when I’m gigging. Would you believe I ordered a second set for another tele…becuase I absolutely did! Do yourself a favor and get a set of these pickups. You and your tele will be satisfied!” – Nick Garcia

Buckaroo ‘63 Tele® Pickup Set
“I recently installed the Buckaroo pickup set in a partscaster with a maple body, maple neck, brass compensated saddles, vintage bridge, Emerson three-way telecaster circuit–and the sound that comes out of the guitar is the most exquisite telecaster sound you could ever want. These pickups have layers of character. Around the 12th fret on the E and A strings, these pickups sound like a contralto who makes you ask “how is she getting that timbre–” mellow and sultry and refined with just an edge of mystery. And, I, as a bass player, really love the little bit of growl you can coax out of the low notes. Add this to the ethereal, vibrant twang in the higher ranges that just soar out and up–not harsh, but clear and strong–and you have a tonal pallet that just makes you want to keep playing everywhere on the fingerboard to explore all the depth of character of these pickups. And the beautiful contrast between the neck and bridge pickups is really engaging. Switching between pickups has never been more fun. So, so good. They make for a guitar that I don’t want to put down. Such an iconic tele sound from those pickups. I couldn’t be happier. To top it off, Owen, the maker of the pickup and conjurer of the magic therein, is helpful and friendly and quick to respond, and it’s clear he loves his work because it shows in the final product. Here’s the bottom line–if you love that telecaster sound, stop what you’re doing, order a set, install them in your tele and then play for hours and revel in how good they sound.” – Jeffrey Hall

Vintage PAF’s
“These are super sweet. I have them in my Gibson ES-339, and opted for the A2 and A5 magnets – raw nickel covers. Super flutey / woody sounding pickups with zero mud. Perfectly suited to this guitar.” – Shamus Gillen
