I’ve had one put in my thinline Tele Deluxe which is semi hollow. Good grief this is a beautiful sounding pickup. It’s so good I like using it for lead a lot of the time.
I like it a little better than the broadcaster in my Baja.

Not sure if it due to being semi-hollow...it sounds very open and airy.

Thanks to Peegoo for suggesting it.

Yep! Best tele neck pup imo.

I don't have mine in a guitar at the moment but it's a keeper and will get into another project one day.

I love the lead sound it gives soloing in D around the 10-13th fret zone. That is *the* sound for me.

Wow, glad you like it, Ryder. It's a fantastic pickup all by itself, and when paired with the Nocaster bridge pickup you have a killer rig that will cover a whole bunch of musical ground.

I like the TT neck pickup because of its broad P90-like upper mids.

It can be fairly bright sounding too. Try adding a treble bypass on the volume pot and rolling off to about 6 or 7. The TT pickup starts to sound like a Filtertron.

And I do have a nocaster in the bridge of that same guitar. Amazing set!

Mick, I’ll remember that, and try it out once I get back on my feet, from bunion surgery.

Peegoo, if I could do my own work I’d try that mod. As of now I haven’t had enough time to enjoy it as is.
Thanks guys.

Sorry for being a rebel but I found the TT pup to be thin in a band mix situation with not enough mids and in addition did'n t sound like a tele imo.
Somethng that needs to be addressed in all these reviews is where are you playing. A pup or guitar or amp might sound so sweet in your house but how does it sound on stage?. With bass guitar it's even more of an issue. Bass players want a sweet hi fi tone in there house or music store demoing but on stage you need that unpleasant mid honk to work in the mix. First time I ever went against Peegoo as I have awesome respect for his knowledge up till now lol..

I find both...neck and bridge...Twisted Teles are as good as any Tele pickups I have had, since I got my first Tele 50 years ago last month. (I was 2 when I got it.)

Tony, on stage, church band. I play through a line 6 pod pro, and the PA.
The TT has everything needed from rhythm to leads. I never thought I heard it to be thin sounding. Very musical sounding if that makes since.
And yes, it also sounds great at home through any of my four amps.

My experience has been in purpose-built rehearsal rooms with a bass player & drummer (and at home). Never had any thoughts of it being thin sounding at all.

As for "did'n t sound like a tele", the TT neck is "tuned" to be more strat-like but that was Alan Hamel's point in his design all along, so it may not be the one for the tele purist.

I personally have found a lot of standard tele neck pickups too muddy on their own. That's why I love the TT. I can dial back the treble on a TT, but can't dial "up" the treble on any dark sounding pickup.

Just 2 more cents...

When I skateboarded, the wheels were from those old clamp on skates. Nice ride! Hard to stay on the board.
Nothing like the TT pup.

That's the first Caballerial I've ever seen in an FDP thread.

I'm stoked!

No! We both know how hard those are to ride, let alone do tricks on.
