Bareknuckle Piledriver Telecaster Pickup
THE PILEDRIVER HAS HIGH OUTPUT SLEDGEHAMMER PERFORMANCE AND IMPACT WITH MASSES OF FULL, FAT DRIVE AND TRUE SLAB-BODIED GRUNT.
These coils have the output of a hot humbucker and all the frequency response of a true single coil, which makes them 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.
