Bare Knuckle Brown Sugar Tele Pickup Set

Maximum quantity available reached.


A vintage hot Tele® set with classic mid range grind, tight bass and characteristic bite in the high-end. Well suited to players looking for authentic Tele® tones with a distinct rock voice.

Voiced entirely to capture a tonal vibe rather than any specific vintage era, the Brown Sugar Tele® set simply oozes rock'n'roll attitude. Scatter-wound with polysol wire for extra output and a more pronounced mid growl, the treble response is bright and percussive with a fast pick attack. The copper plated steel baseplate on the bridge coil keeps the bass response tight with low notes retaining depth and punch, while the neck coil has a complementary warm and woody tone. Clean tones have a bright snap to the front of each note, darker than lower output Tele® coils with a fuller single note tone. The intentional rock voicing of the Brown Sugar set suits a wide range of driven tones from mild break up through to full saturation with an overdriven amp and full wax potting ensures no microphonic squealing.

A good choice for warmer sounding Telecasters particularly well suited to rosewood boards; any Tele that needs some extra grind in the mid range and increased output.
