Pickups for Telecaster
« on: March 31, 2020, 12:36:58 PM »
Hi All

I have a MIJ Tokai Telecaster that has Dimarzio Twang Kings.  I love the brightness and sparkle that these pickups have, so I was thinking about upgrading the pickups in my MIA Fensder Telecaster.

What pickups would you recommend to retain the Tele twang?

Look at the Country Boys, which have AIII magnets. Lots of snap there. Maybe the Blackguards 55/68 stagger. You have rosewood or maple fretboard? And what kind of music you play?
Mules, VHII, Crawler, MM's, IT's, BG50's.
