Bare Knuckle Piledriver Tele Pickup Set

Maximum quantity available reached.


High output sledgehammer performance and impact; masses of full, fat drive with true slab-bodied grunt. The output of a hot humbucker and all the frequency response of a true single coil, perfect for the modern player looking for the ultimate hot Tele coil set.

The Piledriver Tele set sacrifices none of the original Tele character in the pursuit of well-defined power. Rich and deep bottom end combine with fat single coil clarity for a truly versatile set of high output pickups.

Designed with the modern Tele player in mind, the Piledriver set has a throaty mid range and fuller, sweeter highs so that fast riffing has a real edge and single note work really punches through. Although the Piledriver output will give any humbucker a run for its money, the voice is pure Telecaster with a rounder, darker twang and a fatter snap in the bass. Clean playing has plenty of depth and a warmer treble response compared to lower output vintage coils while overdriven tones are strong, capable of controlled harmonic feedback and tremendously tight crunch tones. The bridge coil uses a slightly thicker zinc plated steel baseplate for extra definition and punch while the calibrated neck coil is available in traditional neck cover or open coil as required.
