In a thread about Logan Custom Guitars I read that they use Wilkinson's in their telecaster model.
The statement allthumz made is true, as far as it goes, but might possibly give the wrong impression, so I thought I'd chime in here.
Before I do, let me hasten to say that Bob Logan of Logan Custom Guitars (http://logancustoms.com
) is a member of this forum, and he can speak for himself. However, he may not have seen this thread yet. I hadn't seen it either until just now, as I was searching for info about Seymour Duncan pups, since I am considering them for the next build Bob does for me.
Which brings me to my point. While Bob does use Wilkinson pups in his builds, for an additional charge he will put in just about any pup you want. He offers the options of either selecting a predefined bridge/neck set or selecting your preferred bridge/neck combination. And you can select from Kent Armstrong, Lace Sensors or Seymour Duncans, as well as Wilkinsons. And Bob offers other pickups on request, per availability.
So you can select the Wilkinson Alnico 5 Single Coil Vintage set for no additional cost. Or you can choose the vintage single coil bridge pup and pair that with either a Wilkinson humbucker or a Wilkinson P-90 in the neck position for a modest additional charge ($25 and $35, respectively). Or you can select a set of Seymour Duncans or mix and match your own from the selection Bob offers.
FWIW, I own a Logan Custom Mahogany Tele with a Wilkinson bridge and the Wilkinson Alnico 5 Single Coil vintage single coil pup for the bridge position. In the neck I chose the Wilkinson P-90. Here is a pic from my gallery of what Iím talking about.
Iím very happy with the Wilkinson pups.
The bridge pup gives great twang. If Iím going for a Country sound (e.g., Luther Perkins), I play through the bridge pup clean. Great twang and ice-pick-in-the-ear trebles (which is not my main playing preference, but I enjoy having the option for a song or two in my repertoire). Playing through it in OD is also quite bright, and hot, with plenty of bite.
The Wilkinson P-90 in the neck has a really nice tone with the mahogany body, rounder, warmer, which is what I was going for when I made these choices. The P-90 gives me a pleasing range of different tones and textures. Played clean, itís really sweet and warm. Playing through it in OD can really sound gritty and thick.
Most of the time, I play in the middle position. I love the combination of these two pickups, works very well for Texas blues and classic rock, a large portion of my repertoire.
