I've been playing since the 80s but but I have never been interested in pickup with "rails" before, but I picked up a set of GFS Lil Punchers for the Tele to mess around with. I have not yet wired them for coil tapping, but my initial reaction is: HOT! I got the hottest bridge pickup GFS offers mostly because I figure when I coil tap it will drop down to 7.5k so should be a nice Tele-ish pickup. But at the full 15k, it sounds great. The neck version is not nearly as hot, but also sounds very good, just bright and muscular enough to rock. I had high output humbuckers in my Les Paul and I just hated them, but these things a nice and crisp and sound very much like a Tele on meth. I swear there's a little bit of octave content in them, so them seem almost hysterical, for lack of a better term. Once I get the coil tap wired in, I think that guitar is going to become a fav. I may and up putting them in an extra strat as well! Anyone else messed with these?
