  • Humbucker that sounds like a telecaster?

    Any humbuckers out there that sound kinda like the fender bridge pups? Split or bucked... Bonus points if one exists in the 7string varieties.

    Looking for something with that Tele thwack so I don't have to purchase a new guitar ATM... Eventually I'd love an American Standard Tele or a Warmoth tele with a sustainer. >:]~

    Johnny Hiland claims to be able to get full-spank Tele tone from his HB-loaded PRS sig, but PRS don't offer those particular PUs separately.

      Tallboy Humbucking 4-Conductor

      A true humbucking for people who will not compromise on the "single coil" mode of a standard humbucking type pickup. Fits a conventional humbucking cavity but when split to one coil gives you the sound of a "true" single coil. Why? ... because it is! This feature when combined with a middle position single coil will give you the ultimate "quack" tone in the #2 position of your 5-way switch. Sounds fantastic in the full humbucking mode too! A greater harmonic range than a regular bucker. Imagine the natural response of the perfect single coil buckerized!


      Any tallboy owners here?

        I have an LP w/ coil tapped Kent Armstrong high-output pups that, when split, actually make my LP sound more "country" than my friends tele.

          I've seen him in person, and his sig PRS and a Peavey Valveking (!) got him into country heaven. He works his tone knobs A LOT, though, so I'm guessing those HB's are voiced pretty bright.

            I am quite sure that split Dimarzio PAF have a nice twang to them, and they come in 7 string versions.

              Not sure if they're Tele twang but you can get real 'dearn close with some TV Jones pups. I've got Super'Trons in my SG and they sound pretty freakin awesome. Good gritty rumble twang. They have covers to fit regular humbucker cavities for those of us without a Gretsch, or you can go with the English mount option.

                Anything filtertron-ish will get you close.

                Oddly, the cheap humbucker from the Squier 51 is one of the most spanky, SC-ish humbuckers I've ever run across.

                  I've got one in a project tele. Their claims are spot on, split this thing is a full singlecoil pickup. In humbucking mode, it's brighter than most others as well but retains all the creamy mids.
