In my Esquire I have a Wapping Wharf pickup made by a small company in London called Oil City Pickups. It’s a tapped pickup, the tap is like a superb Tele bridge pickup; the full coil runs to about 15k and adds what can only be described as girth to the sound- almost getting into P90 territory.
I’ll be looking to them again next time I’m in the market…

I love tinkering with different pickups and have been through a bunch, but the one's I'll never change out are the Fralin Real 54's in one of my Strats. I'm pretty sure the Rumplestiltskins in my Tele aren't going anywhere either.

A Broadcaster-style bridge pickup and underwound early 50s style P90 neck pickup from Q Pickups in Croatia.
My other favorite Tele has a Gemini Dynacaster bridge pickup, and a P90-sized Dynasonic from Gabojo in Athens, Greece, as the neck pickup.

Mojotone Classic Tales (bridge & neck) in my avatar Tele; they just do every great Tele tone so beautifully! I even use this guitar in a jazz combo.

Interesting mix from everyone. No reason to change the Fralins, but I’ve got another build in the future.

Wapping Wharf must be a real darling.

I'm mostly a Strat player, and I love the Yosemites in my Performer, the V-Mods in my Pro, the CS Texas Specials in my Squier CV 70s, and the Dimarzio VV 2.1, the older version of the Area 58, in my Oscar Schmidt Strat. In my two Bullet Teles I have the Yosemites in one of them, and the Tonerider style A5 Squier CV ones in the other, and I love them both too
