TEL-Fat Bridge

FAT Telecaster® Replacement Pickup - Bridge position
Fits in a standard Tele route no mods.


This is one of those pickups I have been making for years, and sells quite well. I was surprised that it was not on the website. Well I finally put it up.
This falls in the tradition with all my other FAT pickups and is just a awesome as the rest.
The fat pickups reduces the mid spike and creates a wider tone band where the highs and the lows ae more accentuated because the mids are dialed back.
In a recent A/B with my regular Tel-V Bridge pickup this was the response

"I installed the Tel-FAT pickup first - nice, fat bottom end, clear top end and great note separation. Punchy and articulate. This pickup posses many of the qualities that I'm looking for. I then installed your Tel-V Bridge pickup and immediately wanted to swap back to the FAT. The second pickup sounded thin in comparison. "
