I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I do! I basically got it for free with a GC gift certificate, so I thought what do I have to lose? In an Esquire set up had replaced a Squier Affinity bridge pu with a GFS Alnico 3 Vintage pu, that was an improvement but it still lacked bottom. I got this and it reads like 3.8k on the multi-meter ( the gfs pu read 7.2k) so I almost didn't even want to bother pulling the bridge! I'm glad I did! Strangely enough this pu is really full on the bottom and has decent output! I have the pu about 1/8" from the strings and it really has GREAT bite AND twang. Played clean thru a Fender FM65, it sounds very Paisley! On low drive it sound great with the Eldred Esquire position! I know that it's nowhere near Roy's Nancy, but I don't even think his bridge pu registered an resistance rating. Anyway, for this cheap prepare to be thrilled. If you have a Squier or MIM Tele do yourself a favor and put one of these in before you spend more on pu's than your guitar is worth!
For the money, this is the best Tele pickup out there. This pickup is a single coil Tele pick, made somewhere oversees in a factory, so it's not 'quite' as good as a nice handmade US pickup with AlNiCo magnets, but it's a phenominal Tele pickup that makes a GREAT sound. This has all the twang, character and clarity that you expect from a Tele. If you're a player on a budget, you'll be hard pressed to better for this price--even if you're considering a used pickup. I know--cause I looked and finally settled on this pickup after reading review of the Squier Fat Tele. This is a great sounding pickup at any price!
