    So i just put a twisted tele set in my mij tele and noticed tonight at practice (first time through amp at gig volume) that both pickups pick up my pick tapping through the amp. are they microphonic? it doesn’t hum too bad or anything, actually sound great, but is this a single coil tele thing? i don’t play with much gain (john frusciante-esque) but was wondering if something may be wrong with the pickups or do all tele pickups act like this? sorry if this is a stupid question..

    If there was a hall of fame for the tdpri then this would be in it.

    Single coils are microphonic. You can even talk thru them lol
