For a more traditional look, we can wrap this pickup in String like traditional Tele bridges. If no option is chosen, you will receive no string.

Noiseless, Beefy Tele Bridge Tone.

The Split Steel-Poled Tele Bridge is a great solution a noisy, bright bridge pickup. This pickup provides a huge, beefy midrange. Adjustable pole pieces allow you to fine-tune your string balance. Based on the design of the Split Blade, we created this pickup to get more aggression out of the bridge position. Unlike a humbucker, the Split Steel Poled Bridge features a Left-Right coil design. This allows us to get more clarity, with no hum. This pickup will drop right in to your Telecaster, with no modifications necessary. You’ll get a mix of traditional Tele tone, with P90 aggression. Oh yeah – and with no hum.

This pickup is available in a Bridge Position only. 


The Split Steel Poled Bridge is loud, fat, and punchy. This pickup offers one of our biggest midranges for a bridge position. Bass strings are thick and beefy, but still clear. Treble strings have the Tele Twang, but with a lot rounder quality to them. This Bridge pickup is perfect for those trying to tame a twangy Tele bridge. This pickup sings with distortion. Bass strings are still thick and round, and high strings are nice and full without being piercing.

Choose Stock Output: If you want the thickest, beefiest tone. The midrange will be loud and full. Highs will be slightly darker.

Choose -5% Output: If you want a little clearer tone and more articulation. Highs will be more present, mids slightly scooped.

    I’m using this in the bridge of my Crook T-Style, with 250k pots. It replaced a Florance NoCaster. I originally ordered the guitar with 2 humbuckers, but changed my order to the tele bridge when I started listening to more Brad Paisley. My band doesn’t play country, so I’m really not sure what I was thinking!? (I also replaced the humbucker in the neck with a Fralin Twangmaster, in order to get a single coil sound; I don’t really have an explanation….) The NoCaster was “tele” but beefy, this SSP is “P90.” Huge midrange. No hum at all. It’s detailed, complex, and articulate, while shaving a bit of the “tele” off the top to fit multiple styles a little better.

    The best way to describe the pickup is super fat tele, without the tele signature bite. It has top end bite, but not that specific tele bite. This is exactly what I wanted, I needed a bit more versatility, and I’m using a Tone King Majesty, which has plenty of top end itself!

    Lindy called me and suggested this when I submitted my original order for a Split Blade. I’m so glad he did, because I’ve been wildly happy with this pickup.

    Couldn’t be happier! Massive tone that completely complements the Blues Special I have in the neck. Perfectly matched in volume. It’s Neil and the Horse all over again…

    Perfect match! I bought the high output version for a Tele project and matched it with one of Lindy’s Pure P.A.F. pickups in the neck position. Great tone within it’s own personality and a perfect match with the other great pickup. Very pleased! Thank you guys.

    I play a Grosh Chambered Tele Classic with the Split Steel Poled bridge and the Twangmaster Neck pups. The combination is absolutely fantastic. What I like best about these two pickups is the articulation of each strings tone, whether clean or gritty. I have the luxury of comparing the Fralin pups with other designs in my other tele’s, and this Grosh is quickly becoming my go-to performance guitar because of the sweet articulation of these pickups. Even in driven mode they are sooooo compatible. The only problem is that the more I play these pickups, the less I play my other guitars. Really impressed.

    I have a G&L Bluesboy Tele with a Gibson BurstBucker 1 in the neck. It was muddy sounding and bothersome in an otherwise fantastic guitar. The fix for my problem was changing to 500 k pots and throwing the stock split steel pole in the bridge. I believe it’s the Bluesboy perfected- great neck, bridge and middle position sounds. And hum free in all positions! Truly an amazing pickup. I also fitted a Fralin magic cap and am pleased with the results. Thanks Lindy for taking time to talk about my options. And your staff is awesome.
