Featuring adjustable USA-Made Pole pieces and a thick, dynamic midrange, you will be amazed at the clarity, versatility, and articulation coming from your Tele’s bridge position.

Are you seeking something unique for your Tele’s Bridge position? Are you looking for a “secret weapon” in your guitar’s arsenal? Look no further than our Split Steel Pole Bridge. With a unique design comes a familiar (yet unique) tone. This pickup features a thick, bold midrange, a percussive treble, and a familiar P90 growl.

Wound strings are crystal-clear yet loud, and Treble strings have the Tele Twang, but with a rounder quality. With an accentuated midrange and warmer highs, this Bridge pickup is perfect for those trying to tame a twangy Tele bridge.

Whether you play with distortion or not, you’ll undoubtedly cut through in the mix with our Split Steel Pole Tele Bridge.

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.

1 Questions about Split Steel Poled Tele

  1. Hi, I currently have the Steel pole 43 in my telecaster (500k pots) and I absolutely love it (Thank you !) but I’d like to go noiseless. Plus, I wouldn’t mind having just a little bit beefier bridge pickup. Does this pickup have similar tone and output ? With 500k pots, is it brighter/thinner or darker/ beefier than the SP43 ? Thanks.

    1. Hey Nicolas,

      As it turns out, the Steel Pole 43 is the hottest Bridge pickup we make for Tele. The Split Steel Pole Tele Bridge is a bit cleaner and clearer than the Steel Pole 43 but thicker-sounding than our Steel Pole 42 – it’s right in the middle.

  2. Michael Subrizi Verified Buyer

    Balanced, sweet, and no hum!

    I was building a custom Tele and wanted a sweet-sounding Tele bridge pickup that would match well with a CuNiFe wide-range humbucker in the neck position. Lindley suggested the Split Steel Pole pup and WOW was he spot on. Now, one of my favorite pickups.
