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 was lucky enough to get my first guitar 27 years ago when I was 13 and I've been hooked ever since. As a youngster I immediately began tinkering with them and foolishly got myself in trouble one time for completely disassembling my Uncle's Strat. Oops!
Over the years I've had the opportunity to work a number of different jobs ranging from guitar teacher, to electronics manufacturing, to chef, to pickups. One thing that never changed during those years is my love for guitars and the ongoing pursuit of amazing guitar tone.
Today building pickups is my full time profession with myself as the Fatpups sole operator. Since 2015 I've been fortunate enough to have made thousands of pickups for people worldwide. I would be happy to hear from you so please let me know if there is anything I can do!
