awesome upgrade

By

I put this pickup in my favorite go-to guitar, a 1996 Mexican Telecaster. I've always loved this guitar and kept it while buying and selling quite a few 'nicer' guitars. This guitar has a humbucker in the neck with a standard Tele bridge pickup. The humbucker was always a tad muddy and bassy, so I decided to put in a Golden Age humbucker, and while at it, why not try a Golden Age bridge? Well, the guitar absolutely sings now. The bridge PU is just so much more dimensional than the stock that I can't believe I waited 16 years to figure it out. It was easily the best $50 I've spent in a long, long time!

Classic vintage sound

I have been working on a tele build project for ages and looked at lots of different pickups. I decided on these because if what they claimed turned out to be true, then For the price there is nothing better. I installed these in my tele which was very easy to do and have been absolutely loving them ever since. These are the best vintage sound on the market in my opinion and the price cannot be beat.

If your thinking about buying these then do it, they will not disappoint.

I went over budget on my Telecaster project and was hoping to put Lindy Fralin pickups on the guitar. I went for the Golden Age mainly on cost and I would say they are worth the money but will probably be replaced in the future. You can't go wrong with these if your expectations are not high. Clean sound, moderate output, well crafted.

Installed a set of these (as well as the vintage Tele wiring kit with CTS pots and a brass saddled stewmac bridge) into a '94 50's MIJ Tele. What was once a guitar that I had never played and strongly considered selling is now my favorite player. The tone, twang and spank are the real deal. This guitar just sings now and is very difficult to put down.

I wanted to breathe some new life into my Japanese tele and these were the ticket! These pickups are powerful and clear and I can't thank you enough.

I put together a Stewmac Tele body and neck. It came up great. I compared this with my son's Fender Tele and the Golden Age pickups sound authentic. I'm well pleased with my home constructed Tele. Thanks Stewmac!

Good pick up,bad wiring diagram

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Excellent sounding pickups.I used them in a Tele kit body and found the bridge pickup too big for my cavity.A quick rout out with my Dremel sorted it out.I found the wires way too long from the pickups.You can afford to bearly halve their length.



my biggest beef is with the wiring diagram in the instructions.The second diagram using the CLR switch does not show the connection from the switch to the volume pot.I wired the pickups according to the switch and had no sound.I checked the Seymour Duncan site for the correct diagram and found the pick ups worked and they kicked ass.



Stewmac needs to correct the wiring diagram urgently.Apart from that an excellent product.
