Texas Special Telecaster Pickups Overview

For die-hard Telecaster enthusiasts seeking a richer sound, the Texas Special Tele pickups offer a robust upgrade. These overwound pickups are designed to enhance the classic Tele tone with modern enhancements, making them versatile enough to span genres from country with Merle Haggard to the heaviest metal.

Bridge Pickup: The bridge pickup of the Texas Special Tele is built with Alnico 5 magnets and features enamel-coated magnet wire, which contributes to its vibrant tone. It is equipped with height-staggered magnets and a copper-plated steel bottom plate. This combination not only boosts the output but also enriches the presence and midrange, giving it a powerful punch that cuts through any mix.

Neck Pickup: In contrast, the neck pickup is adorned with a nickel-silver cover that emphasizes clarity and warmth, delivering that unmistakable warm Telecaster tone. This setup ensures that the neck pickup produces a clear and warm sound, ideal for achieving the classic twang or a smooth bluesy drawl.

Versatility and Performance: Together, these pickups form a versatile set that can handle everything from traditional country licks to the aggressive riffs of metal. Whether you’re lighting up the stage or crafting new sounds in the studio, the Texas Special Tele pickups demand attention with their distinct sonic characteristics.

This set of two pickups is perfect for Telecaster players looking to significantly enhance their guitar's sound without losing the soulful qualities that make a Tele a Tele.
