A very powerful and sonically rich pickup set for your Tele®. Designed with a higher output for a thick mid range tone yet, the tone is not compromised. The tone is very lush, warm and offers spectacular crunch for a higher output punch.

The neck is pushed to just over 9.0k allowing for a larger than normal presence from a traditional Tele®, yet tonally pleasing with a balanced EQ presence.

The bridge is powerful. With an output of over 14k, its presence and punch rival many humbuckers yet with that classic superb Tele® twang. The pickup is versatile, roll back your volume and you have a pleasing, rich rhythm. Turn up the volume and its perfect for screaming leads. Alone it makes a great Esquire pickup that simply roars with power.

A versatile set perfect for all styles of play.

Choose between chrome, black or gold cover. Comes with mounting hardware.

    Matched the Sonic Ascent to a Tone zone-T and wired out of phase. The effect is amazing. The voicing for the Sonic ascent is rich, and full, yet creamy making this setup very versatile. Metal, Marr, Blues, or old rock and roll. As well the customer support is the TOP of the TOP! Thank you Jose!!!! Advise, direction, and support. Will be doing lots of business with Planet tone

    These make my tele copy that my parent’s got me in the 70s sound better than a tele today, you will have to wait a bit to get these because craftsmanship can’t be rushed, you will not be sorry
