    am planning to get a telecaster performer, any comments/opinions on the Yosemite pickups?

    I have a Telecaster Performer with Yosemite pickups and they sound amazing. Great articulation, no huming.
    They are not extra hot, but are really nice for rock, blues, country...
    I measured the DC resistance if you are interested
    Bridge; DC Resistance: 7.6 kΩ
    Neck; DC Resistance: 5.9 kΩ

    I had a Mustang Performer and hated them, but that's me, you might find that you love them.

    All Yosemite pickups I have played have sounded great.

    I got the American Performer Tele SH, expecting to change at least the neck humbucker, if not both pickups. Five minutes of play, and I knew they were both staying.

    I also have the AP Mustang Bass, and those pickups aren't going anywhere either.

    I replaced the stock squier pickups with Yosemites in my avatar's strat. It's not a tele, but maybe this comparison video might be helpful.

    I put them in my MIM Standard Tele. Quite pleased. They aren’t harsh or biting. Still have the Tele Twang and not dead sounding like the noiseless. I’ve only tried a few different Tele pickup sets. There could be better ones but these suit me well.
