    My Favorites are the Fezzter "Oildale" in the bridge and the Fezzter "FP-90" in the neck. The Oildale is like an original Fender pup from the '60s very warm, balanced and musical. The FP-90 is somewhere between a good P-90 and a Strat with a bit of attitude, without the noise you can get with a P-90. Together they balance well without one overpowering the other. I've had these pups in my Pinecaster for over a year and have never considered changing the out for anything else. Believe me, in my case that says a lot

    I love my stephen's designs blackguard tele pups!! The neck pup is possibly the best neck pup I have ever played/heard. It took some setup -who ever said setting up a neck pup in a tele was easy!

    A lot of guys act like they never use their neck pup. I think they would use this one!!

    Couldn't agree more. I've got a pair of Effbuckers that sound great.
