You see how I don’t have any idea? I didn’t know a tele could come with humbuckers. However, the tele that you send as example, József, has the humbucker at the neck pickup, and I’m pretty sure the one I saw was single-coil at the neck . Anyway is good to now that there are HS Teles. Thanks
Sure there will be nuances aside from the aesthetics. However I agree, all the yt guitarists I see with a tele talk about the tone that the single coils give to them. But … . A difficult discussion, indeed. But I can’t contribute to it, because I only own an electric and never played a telecaster.
Edit: I Edit to add a photo of mine (poor quality, sorry). To show that I think the neck pickup was single coil
It’s a shame his strumming arm is covering the bridge pickup @Rumil
In the first photo (not yours) it looks like it may be a single-coil sized or even a regular sized humbucker. It is not angled like a normal Telecaster bridge pickup. The photo makes it difficult to be sure.
Certain companies make humbuckers that fit the gap of a single coil pickup for Strats, Teles etc.
You saw Iron Maiden recently, Dave Murray plays an HHH Stratocaster.
The humbucker is definitely better for Metal but the big factor is that what ever type of pickups used MUST be high output.
Humbucker pickups with lower output are great for jazz but would probably struggle to get a real metal growl!
I have two electric guitars that have P90’s, one will do metal ok the other won’t, it’s all about output. I originally planned to use aftermarket pickups for the sound I wanted on both guitars but both were good without swapping them out, the only thing was that the wrong guitar had the hot ones but hey ho c’est la vie!
You can but I’ve always found that you don’t get the same thing by doing that, by boosting low output pickups it can produce a quite muddy sound with a lack of separation, if you want it right the hotter wound pickups are the best way to go.
Yes they are UK based and mail overseas. Got mine a few years back and sent to France with no issues or additional cost. But the UK was still in the EU at the time, so European buyers be aware of possible additional cost. If I recall https://www.axetec.co.uk/ who are the distributor, now take off the VAT for EU customers, which means you would be liable for excise duty from your local customs officials.
