Made for the player who can’t give up their Tele but needs the clarity and roundness you get from a Strat neck pickup. The neck pickup comes equipped with an open cover and is scatter wound with 42 awg magnet wire which nicely emulates that clear Strat bell tone. For your convenience it comes tapped with 6-32 threads for hassle free mounting to a pickguard, but it can still be mounted to the body with wood screws.
The bridge pickup is over wound and has larger pole pieces than a traditional Telecaster bridge pickup. The end result is higher output and increased bass response without sacrificing that sweet Tele twang. When played through an overdriven amp it can have some p90 like qualities.

I'm Chris and I love guitars. I got my first guitar 23 years ago when I was 13 and I've been hooked ever since. As a kid I started tinkering with them right away and I even got in trouble one time for completely disassembling my Uncle's Strat!
After working many different jobs over the years ranging from guitar teacher to electronics manufacturing one thing has remained the same. I have never stopped tinkering with guitars, and I never will!
The idea for Fatpups came to me in 2016 after going on a long binge of pickup making. I wasn't selling pickups at the time, but I was in deep on a tone quest. Eventually that tone quest turned into something much more. I'm now so very grateful that I've been able to take my passion for amazing guitar tone and share it with the rest of the world.
