I decided to upgrade pickups on my newest telecaster. I bought Artec Noiseless pickups overwound. The bridge is 16k and the neck is 11k. I had the tech install them. I have played them for 2 days. Here is my initial impressions. They sound almost a dead ringer to my fender tex mex pickups in my fender only the artec are noticeably louder. It does have definition to the notes whereas the old ceramics I replaced were kind of blurry and raw sounding. I an very well pleased with these. Anyone looking for the Texas specials ot tex mex sound buy these. The are much more affordable.
