    Suggestions for tele pickups please?

    Yup. Get the Wilde L298 bridge and L280 neck. Never mind this thread is 12 years old!

    Solid State amp you've known and loved,,, or hated,

    Unfortunately, those videos give a horrible impression of the great sound of these amps. I don't know what those guys did to record them, but sheesh. On my Gold Estoc, plug in and get a great sound. No twiddling needed, just setting quickly. Even so, there is great versatility. Clean? Yes...

    Your Favorite Amp

    I bought a Pritchard Gold Estoc in early 2020 and I don't expect to need another amp unless I find one with a 10" speaker just to have a smaller one. Amazing amp.

    Treat Her Right was a fun band. I got to see them in Maine when I lived there back in the early 90s.

    I don't remember the bass, but he put two strings on it and used a slide. When he was in the previous band, Treat Her Right, Mark used a guitar with an octave divider for bass. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Sandman#Musical_career

    Classic Tele Sound - Wilde Pickup recommendation please

    I've swapped around so many of the Wildes in my guitars. I'm waiting on some AlNiCo MCs for my Strat, which currently has the 290/280 set. I love them. My favorites for a few years have been the standard L290/280s both in my Strat and Tele. I just don't have to fiddle with the settings at all...

    Does anyone know if Eric Pritchard is still alive? Website is gone. I emailed with him end of 2019 but I tried a few months back and it bounced.

    Stop me before I take a sander to my Tele!!

    I can’t play square tele bodies due to arm pain. Now a days you can order contoured bodies but 30 years ago I put them in myself and did a great job. But that was before finishing the wood. I might pay someone else with a finished guitar.

    Wilde Pickups - Tele 3 Way Wiring Diagram Help

    215kohm is close enough to 200k. Try it without first. If the bridge pickup is too bright then add it in. The 80kohm/300nf combo is treble bleed. I really like that one but note it evens out the volume taper a bit, which I like. Try it, if you don’t like it try the Kinman treble bleed.

    Trem units?

    I put one of these on a Strat and it's wonderful. My only complaint is that I would like the arm to have a more vintage, upward bend. It's pretty straight. I wrote the company a couple times asking if they could do one for me like that, but they didn't reply to either inquiry. On the other hand...

    fralin pickups

    If I couldn’t get Wilde/Bill n Becky n Shannon pickups, I’d get Fralins. BTW I saw his band a few years ago and his sound was outstanding.
