Lace Sensors! FTW!
Thanks for spelling it out for me Ricky.
I like to think that I know what most of the abbreviations are, but when you get into the sub-forums, sometimes they can become somewhat archaic.
TG, thanks for the input. I'll give 'em a shot and see how they sound to me - I really don't know any better way to do it, but it's always nice to have some feedback from other players! Thanks again.
When buying replacement pickups all anyone can do is research, guess and hope for the best.
does anyone know what pick ups scott lentz used in his 53t models?
bridge: Don Mare 'Stingray 3 Speed'
neck: Don Mare 'Big Box Archtop'
Don Mare Tweed Monster bridge S-Telly neck is great in my Baja.
WWJLD: What Would Jason or Lindy Do?
I've been through a bunch of pickups ( fralin, duncans, van zandts, bardens, harmonic design) but my current favorite is a set of Dimarzio Twang Kings. Outstanding sounding pickup and very reasonably priced.
I've just Tried something a little unorthodox
I have one of Don's Sting Ray 3 taps at the bridge and a Lollar Charlie Christian on the Neck
Its given me a unique Tone, someone commented it was piano like .
The Set up has 011, 013, 019, 032, 042, 052 with brass saddles and a brass string block and bridge.
I call it my LesQuire Jr.
What a beautiful one of a kind frigging guitar! I even forgot what the hell the topic of this thread was!
hey all .. i'm just now doing a tele project that i'm using as more of blues/rock tele.. it has a Duncan 59 (fullsize) in the neck.. i find myself mostly focusing on sweet bluesy neck tone when i play, strats too (more chicago based blues than country) but i'm lookin for a bridge pup that'll be both sweet & balanced (complimentary) and versatile... maybe pull off some country twang too.. and blend w/ the 59, i WAS thinkin Donahue until i ran across this thread... my question is... is it possible that the donahue wasn't adjusted??? adjustments make can a huge dif... my friend has a 88 USA tele w/ SD JD in it.. i'm gonna check it out but now, i'm rethinking VZs, OVs or Lollars... thanks for the insights -
Seymor duncan 5-2 in the neck and bridge! Just put them in and thaey have the clarity and punch that I was looking for and I have found what I like. Sweet!!!!! IMO
Either the regular Blackguards or the LapWrap set
This may sound repetitive, but my search ended when i got a Jason Lollar special T set. I use my guitar pluged straight into a Blues Junior it's just perfect for my tastes.
Interesting, or did I miss something? Fralin's do it for me, hands down. Didn't see them mentioned in the thread at all.
Do not avoid the Jerry Donahue just because of a couple of posts. In my opinion it is the best Telecaster bridge pickup I have ever owned, which includes Fenders (Nocaster, etc.), Duncans (Broadcaster, etc.), Bill Lawrence, and several hand wound Vintage Vibes.
I got SD 5/2 in my '52 RI. Very balanced and have more punch than the originals. I've used them for the past 3 maybe 4 years in it so I can't quite remember how the stock set tasted.
I just snagged a Peter Florance neck and whenever I can get my hands on a bridge I'll swap them out to try something different
justpickups has Nocasters for $98 right now, thats a steal for great pickups.
If money is not an option I vote Fred Stuart Blackguards.
Nocasters for me too, they just nail that nice twangy clean and raunchy lead tone for me. Might no be everyones cup of tea
