    Installed a P90 Bootstrap pickup in my FSR tele. Love the sound of this pickup a lot. Will be ordering more from them right away. Going to try their squeaky clean P90 neck, and the Pretzel bridge

    He does nice work at a great price.
    You are aware that his P90 is much more akin to a Jazzmaster pickup than a P90?

    Did you get the AlNiCo slugs?
    I was surprised to find those when I got my set. I must have missed it on the website.
    He offered to swap them out for me, but it didn’t seem right to have him fix the mistake I made.

    Nice looking tele

    Excellent builder. Wish they would do proper p90’s with the bar magnets and everything instead of the slugs. That said, for anyone on the fence, bootstrap does amazing work and you will get amazing pickups and amazing customer service for an amazing price. Nothing but good words to say about these guys. They’re great.

    I love my Palo Duro (Bootstrap) Tele set on my current #1.....but I'm now putting together another Telecaster, and I have a set of Pretzel Pups AND another PaloDuro set to decide between. Most likely, it'll be the Pretzels. But regardless of WHICH set I go with, it'll be something by Bootstrap! ;)
