I've just seen this on the Jimmy Wallace site.
Has anyone done this?
How does it sound?
Fender made that triple tele a couple of years ago with 3 nocaster bridge pickups.
I know several people here picked them up when musicians friend was blowing them out for something crazy like $400 bucks. Which was a steal because the parts alone are worth more than that.
Heard a triple in action at a pub club blues jam ,it sounded good ,but all the guitars sounded good .My wreckage of a tele partscaster did ,played through the club Blackstars.Les Pauls sounded great ,64 335's sounded great ,strats sounded great and once the volume is up to noisy pub levels it doesnt really seem to matter what you play . As long as the player is competant out it all comes ,mean rocking blues.
I do it all the time with Strats, I've wondered what a Tele pickup would sound like there. I dont see a big down side, but the Tele bridge pickup is a bit of a different animal for sure. Not sure if it's the bridge plate or the pickup though...
I have no idea how it sounds, but I like the look of that guitar.
Might be cool to have them slanted to opposite sides
It does look good, doesn’t it?
Oooooh! Now that would be interesting!
I have a very thin sounding early Champion lap steel pickup that would proboly sound good in the neck position.
There's a huge range of "Tele bridge pickup" sound, depends on which one you choose for the neck and what it pars with at the bridge.
Try to charge the magnets
I had the same thought. Maybe with a straight middle pickup a la Nashville. Just to annoy people.
Oh damn! I like that look a whole damn lot. Might go that route when I build a Tele out of hollow core door wood (aka : tropical hardwood plywood. Ooooo fancy!) I’ll do reverse slants though.
