  • great sound and hot pickup

    As reviewed by andrew on 3/23/2010

    First off, I have an american standard tele that I was getting tired of the hum and lack of clarity in the stock pickups. I was a little skeptical of this pickup and the sound I would get out of it. I wanted to add some punch to the mids, but also wanted to quiet down the hum from the single coil. I was considering getting some of the noiseless pickups, but as these are not really any "hotter" than the stock PUs I went with this pickup. I was very very happy with this decision. the Lil'59 was installed in the bridge position and it changed the whole sound of my guitar. The middle selection (bridge & neck) sounds much cleaner and still has twang to it, while the bridge only selection sounds more like a gibson humbucker. Did I mention the guitar is much quieter now? the bridge and neck combined and bridge only selection are virtually noiseless now, and the neck only pickup was pretty quiet to start with so +++++. I would definitely recomend this pickup if you are looking to give your tele some added punch without losing the twangy bluesy sound we all buy tele's for.

  • ehhh...

    As reviewed by grtr on 3/25/2010

    the pickup is pretty easy to install and definitely sounds different than the stock tele bridge, but I expected it to have more clarity. If you are looking for clarity don't go for this pickup, if you want a hotter high gain pickup for your tele then definitely go for this one. Sounds ok in OD with much higher mids and no hum which is nice. overall I gave it a 3 because I thought the clarity would be there, but it is quite muddy sounding at high volumes.

  • Big Improvement over the standard Pickup. Can be used for a split coil Tele setup.

    As reviewed by Robin Stonestreet on 1/29/2013

    I installed one is a Squire Tele in an hour and a half for a friend. The standard Chinese single coil was ok but didn't have the Tele Twang. The Little 59 Tele pickup turned an inexpensive guitar into a great sounding axe. The high gain channel was much cleaner for shredding and the pickup is dead quiet in all three switch positions when playing is stopped, even in high gain mode on the amp. I did adjust the lipstick pickup closer to the strings to get the pickups balanced and the bridge moved a bit due to a slightly larger dimension at the pickup base over the single coil. Adjusted intonation (Low E at extended limit). Overall it was a very good improvement. The Little 59 Tele pickup is a four wire pickup. It's possible to install a push-pull volume pot and split the coils. The wiring diagram is included with the pickup for series or split coils. I'm looking forward to that mod on my next Tele project. The Seymour Duncan quality is evident in the product and packaging. The little Squire is now a great tool for improving skills at a very economical price. Overall the pickup is worth every dime.
