    Hey all
    Can anybody give me some pickup recommendations? I kind of want a rocky/blues tone. I have standard routing for a telecaster.
    Thanks

    There are a lot of good pickups out there depends a lot on budget. If you want something good and not to off the shelf then have a look at bare knuckle pickups, Wizard pickups and Gemini Pickups. There are sound samples on both the Bare Knuckle and Gemini sites.

    I have just ordered some gemini pickups for my build.

    If budget isn't a concern contact Don Mare or O.C. Duff. Either of those guys can wind you a set a pickups that will meet your needs.

    If you are looking for a quality rock/blues pickup the Fralin Blues specials get a lot of love around here.

    Then again, Keystones get a lot of love too.

    Play with a lot effects or distortion? Barden makes a good pickup.

    Don Mare or Lindy Fralin are great choices. I just put a Don Mare S-Tele neck pickup in and it is awesome.
