Sound

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.

OPTIONS:

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.

Polarity Information:

Here's how we wind and magnetize our pickups:

This is a Hum Cancelling Pickup.

If you're buying a set from us, all pickups will work together seamlessly. If you're buying a single pickup, all you need to worry about is Coil Direction.

To ensure your pickup will work, make sure you select multiple leads (2-conductor with shield), or the 3-Wire modification so you can reverse the coil direction, if need be.
