Vintage in character with expanded fidelity.

The Danny Gatton T-Style Tele Pickup Set features dual blade T-Style pickups. It was inspired by Danny Gatton, one of best Tele guitarists to have lived. He wanted a new model of high-end replacement pickups as opposed to those that were merely variations on established designs or basic repair parts.

Originally designed for Danny (and with Danny testing every step of the way) they have become the first choice of professional Tele players worldwide. The tone of these pickups can be described as absolutely vintage in character, but with greatly expanded fidelity. The lows, mids, and highs are all equal in strength, eliminating the thin, or "tinny" sound that is often a problem with Tele-styled guitars.

The T-Neck is remarkable in that it can be adjusted so that its output is actually equal to the T-Bridge, thus solving the age-old Tele player's complaint: huge output differences between the bridge and neck pickups. While these pickups can be adjusted to greatly exceed the output level of stock pickups, the authentic Tele twang and snap is maintained, and any kind of noise, be it hum, hiss, or squeal, is completely eliminated.

The T-Bridge features our unique "staggered-blade" design, common to all Joe Barden single coil sized bridge pickups for Strats and Teles. The staggered dual blade ensures balanced response on the outer strings. These pickups are the best imaginable for the instrument that originally defined the solid body electric guitar.

T-Style pickups fit standard Tele body routs and require no modifications to the instrument. They utilize 4 conductor shielded cable to allow for any possible wiring combination and are supplied with wiring diagrams and mounting hardware to facilitate installation.

  • Amazing Pickups

    As reviewed by Thomas Morris on 2/26/2013

    I bought a well built Mexican Tele, junked the stock pickups and added these, a fret dress and a setup for 10's using DDR pure nickel 10's... holy cow! The guitar sounds amazing. These pickups sound fantastic. The bridge pickup has a unique sound, it isn't all bass for jazz anymore and I enjoy playing all positions now. They handle rock and crunch very well but not as good as humbuckers on a Les Paul. The PUPs don't destroy the tele sound and have plenty of slap and pop... more so than stock PUPs. The tone is not the same as the N3 Noiseless or other single coil PUPs... these are both warm and crisp at the same time. They are not cheap, but I don't think I could have found better pickups for my guitar. I highly recommend spending the money and hearing what I get hear everyday.

    As reviewed by Den on 4/8/2015

    Got these installed last night and they truly sound beautiful! the wiring diagram could have been a little clearer but nonetheless, figured it out eventually! The optional capacitor was not marked the way the instuction's claimed so didn't install it - there are 2 to choose from and neither one was marked correctly as shown in the diagram. Guess it didn't matter much 'cuz the Made in Mexico guitar I bought last year really sounds great - after I changed the string height and pickup height! What an improvement!! I can switch from the bridge pup to the neck pup without having to turn it up or turn it down or change the tone!! Beautiful! Danny sure developed a good set and glad I upgraded!Made a good guitar a great guitar!!
