Best upgrade ever.

By VoltesBazooka

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

I own a Squier Tele and you'd know how noisy and cheap-sounding it can be if you actually owned one yourself. Tried "shielding" with copper tape, no luck there. So I decided to give these SCN's a shot and WOW!!! The tone is soooo sweet whether when playing it clean, or on low or high gain OD ;) It wil even sound like a metal humbucking axe if you know how to tweak the EQ properly, but that's not really the reason why someone chooses a Tele is it? Best of all the annoying noise is all but reduced to almost nothing. Man I can't say enough good things about these pickups. Truly the best upgrade I ever did on any of my guitars ;) Just be careful when installing these on a "Squier" Tele as the dimensions are quite different from the "Fender" ones. I'm not a professional guitar tech but I managed to install them none the less with little or no problems. You might need to improvise on the mounting screws for the neck pickup so don't throw away the screws from your old pickups. Now I know my Tele will stay with me for a long long time.

Not a creature was stirring...

By Jason V.

from Chicago

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

Had these installed for my MIM Fender Telecaster and was definitely impressed and relieved at their performance. Both neck and bridge pickups were absolutely silent even through a decent amount of distortion and various effect combos. Excellent upgrade and worth every penny.

Holy Freakin Cow!

By Kip

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

WOW! Doesn't matter if you own the Squier Affinity Tele or the Real American or Mexi Telecaster, these pickups are a MUST HAVE! Having owned a true blue american standard Tele, and currently a Squier Affinity Tele, you cannot beat the quiet rocking style of these babies. I don't mean quiet on tone, they are quite loud and proud with sweet tele tone or rocking metal tone with the right amp and effects. These are very quiet pickups hotter than standard (way hotter than Squier standard obviously, the squier replacements cost 13 bucks what do you expect?) I highly recommend strapping these puppies on and taking em for a long ride..........I play country/blues/rock and they work for all genre's!

Wowzers

By Tele Hedge

from Portland, OR; Chattanooga,TN

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

I have a Squier Tele that I've been playing for a year and I liked the feel but the Squier pickups were very bad. Being a poor college student I couldn't afford to buy a fender guitar so I bought these guys and put them in my Tele. I tried doing it myself which wasn't a good idea and now I have to get a ground wire fixed because for some reason I'm getting an annoying hum, but the pickups are amazing!!! Everyone remarks on how good they sound and they pick up ten times more than my old pickups did. I'm playing a show on Saturday and I'm super excited to play my Tele.

Great Tele, no hum

By Jim

from Peoria, IL

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

My 2nd tele, is a MIJ 50's series. Big, fat maple neck and Salmon pink. It's a great guitar, but came with WAY underpowered pick-ups. The feel and look made me 'want to play' it, but the sad sound relegated it to back-up. I did a whole bunch of research and decided to install these (they come with a ground lug, which isn't explained at all). Once I got 'em in the tele, they were good but still had some residual noise. Took it apart, got out the shielding stuff and went back to work. Now, copper shielding under the pick guard, in the control compartment and in both pick-ups...it sings! All the traditional tele sound is there, minus ANY hum. It can be mellow or scream, and anything in between. All together a GREAT project and it's making me grab this one way more often. And, I got 'em for around $85 at GC. Leo would be happy!

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

I have these SCN's in my 2008 Fender American Telecaster Deluxe Aged Cherry Burst Maple Neck. The SCN's are wired to a Fender S-1 switch for a choice of series or parallel tones. Designed by Bill Lawrence, these pickup's use Samarian Nickel Colbalt magnets for a forward thinking advancement in output and tone. The Tele Deluxe build quality is second to none. The SCN's along with the high quality tone woods and design the Fender engineers came up with make for a life long Telecaster that I couldn't even imagine selling. The guitar and pickup's are really that good.

Face Melting

By Spitler

from pittsburgh, pa

Comments about Fender SCN Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Telecaster Pickup Set:

I, like some of the other reviewers, popped these into a Squier Tele... and all I can say is that I'm 100% blown away! These pickups compared with the stock Squier ones are much louder, powerful, and edgy. They bite like a rabid mule! For clean playing they have a warmth, sustain, and tone that gives you a tighter connection with your guitar. The old pickups allowed me to get away with mistakes I didn't realize I was making... these SCN pickups are so accurate that you realize your flubs and missed fretting. Also of note... I've had a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal for a while now and never liked using it with the stock pickups... the sound was messy and hummy... I plugged in with these new pickups and now this pedal is just awesome! SCN Pickups... very highly recommended!
