      Are GFS pickups considered better than stock Fender pups?

        I'd go for Lace Sensors myself anyway.


        I got a Tele Plus at the beginning of the year so I've already got Lace Sensors

            I like the Fender CS Nocaster set. They're about 90 - 100.


            Just put these in my tele. Love them.

                This guy makes phenomenal pickups. Not expensive either.

                I've got about 3 sets by him.


                Is that your guitar in the avatar? Like to mod mine and that looks pretty modded.

                  I have a Dimario Area T neck and Hot T in the bridge; does a pretty good job and is one of my best sounding guitars after the pickup change.

                    Funny but the current bridge pickup in my Tele is actually an SD Little '59 with a stock Fender in the neck, good sounding pickup but I have another Tele with a full humbucker in the bridge so I'm looking for a single coil instead.

                    I might try coil tapping the '59 in the mean time just to see if it sounds any good.

                      I'll repeat the recommendation of the Bill Lawrence Keystones: http://wildepickups.com/Wilde_Bill_s_Keystones.html
                      Over at TDPRI (those guys know all there is know about Teles), these pickups are highly regarded.

                        He's in the UK which (from what I've read on numerous occasions) equates to BK's working out to be in the same ballpark as Seymour Duncans or Dimarzios

                          Yeah, I really like the CS69 Strat pickups so I figured I would give them a try. They're very nice and affordable on Amazon.

                            His noise-less pups are my favorite by far. I love L290TL-E its got sweet mid range. Very powerful pickup.

                              I'm using Fender SCN's, which Bill Lawrence also designed. Haters gonna hate, but I really like the sound of them, and they're noiseless, which is a big plus when recording.

                                I have a CS Strat I ordered with a whole bunch of odd stuff including the noiseless and the clapton boost and i really really like them as well.
