    Was watching the new Bruce Springsteen documentary last night and he was playing what is probably a CS Tele but it has what looks like Seymour Duncan 59s in both the bridge and neck. Dont see the Seymour Duncan logo but they could have been blacked out. You can see the guitar at the 1:22 point of the video below.

    Any ideas on what these pus are?

    Thanks.

    Not sure about the pickups, but that's a good tune.

    The JBE blade pickups do not look like the ones in the video which look like the Duncan Lil 59

    JBE (the 'new' Joe Barden pickup company) doesn't make a Tele set with 12 screw poles. Those look like Duncans.

    I have seen pictures of Kent Armstrong PUs with 12 pole pieces too. They're called Growlers. Although google doesn't recognize them much..
