Just put that same bridge pickup in my 50s Classic Tele...such a great sounding pickup.
Rob is the man!
I am a sucker for his fat lion, and now I really want to try this one!
OP, great looking esquire, congrats!
Generally pop punk music, bands like the Story So Far. So a thick, growly p90 like tone with jangly highs.
Frettech.com Rob DeStefano has Fat, Huge, and Humongous winds that live in that tone zone. I just bought a double-tapped pickup from him for my Esquire conversion.
Edit: My tapped pickup has the Bakersfield, Nashville, and Fat winds. I'll put it on a 3-way switch like a Strat.
Depends on the player, I think sometimes. My Favorite Esquire has a simple, borrowed Tex Mex T pickup with a Mojotone base plate affixed with some Shoe Goo (after I removed the extra plastic where the screws attach).
In defense of those Broadcaster pickups, they're an excellent matchup with the Twisted Tele neck pickups. I wonder if the O.P. got a bum one - I sure like the 7 I have.
Looks absolutely awesome!
Nice! Rob's pickups are great. I have a variety of them in a few of my teles and a couple esquires. I love them all.
Yes it's possible the Broadcaster p/u is a bum one, it has zero presence. And I've never been a big fan of single coil neck p/u's (I know don't yell at me), but the Twisted Tele does sound good, in a Strat sort of way. I've just had a thing for Esquires for a long time, and I'm so glad I did this simple conversion.
