Bridge Pickup for Telecaster


Recommended Posts

Mornin' all,

Can anyone recommend a good "growly" bridge pickup for a Tele ?

Something fat, but will cut through.

Guitar - Peavey Reactor Tele clone, alder body, maple neck

Amp - Hard to say as I get a different one delivered every day with my morning paper (but it'll have valves in)

Genre - Classic Blues/Rock - e.g Lizzy, Sabs, Purps, Zep, Free, Bad Co vintage ZZ Top, 60's, 70's stuff.

Ta muchly

I've tried loads of tele pickups and think that the right amp settings have a huge part to play in getting the right sound. I have seven teles and find that the denser bodied ones have more I wasn't very keen on the Seymour Duncan lil 59, which I thought sounded a bit thin and definitely didn't do bottom end growl. I like USA standard, Texas Special, Seymour Alnico 2 and Broadcaster pickups best. Haven't tried a hotrails, but I'd like to. Here's a video of one!
