The Golden age pickups are a great value for any refit , repair job or new project. Respectable performance for the price. I have used them in the past and will choose them again.

height adjustment tubing no good

By

Verified Buyer


i installed these about 2 years ago,AWESOME TONE btw. But the tubing used for the height adjstment compression turns liquidy after time and sticks to screws. I put the original screws back in because they never had a problem, But great sounding pickups with originalish specs,bridge pole pieces are set for a wound 3rd(which I use for all my guitars. Even with the rotton rubber its still 5 star product!

High quality at a low price!  

By

Verified Buyer


I put a set into a Squire Tele (with CST pots, Switchcraft jack, and an orange drop) and it is now indistinguishable from a US Tele in terms of sound. The build quality is excellent on both units. Stewmac matches the materials and winding specs of 50's Fender pickups so there is no reason they should not also match the sound. The price is right. There is simply NO reason to pay more.

Neck was good but bridge was microphonic

By

Verified Buyer


I put these in a Tele project I built. The neck pickup sounded great, but the bridge was microphonic at higher volume levels, causing feedback.

Nice for the price

By

Verified Buyer


Put these in a parts caster and they sound great.I really like the neck more than bridge .I put in a Golden Age wiring harness ,it would have been nice to have enough wire to flip the control plate around.pleased over all.

Brash and Loud!

By

Verified Buyer


Bypassing the tone circuit, the Tele bridge pickup is brash and loud (think Gene Vincent). Through a fixed.1 tone cap, the sound is a soft, deep bass without being muddy. Through a .5 cap and potentiometer tone circuit, you get the early 60's Buck Owens-Don Rich Tele bridge pickup sound I was after. The workmanship is great, and the wiring is easy to solder. You can't buy a better pickup for the money.

Great price to tone ratio!

By

Verified Buyer


I'll be honest: these are NOT the best pickups for a Tele, but they are great for the price. I will be upgrading them down the road, but these are excellent 'gateway' pickups for any Tele that comes out of the factory with sub-par pickups.

GOOD VALUE

By

Tight and focused tone.Quiet too.I installed this NECK PUP into my TELE copy. At the bridge I put in the GOlden age OVERWOUND..and wired it for coil split.

They work well together.NO regrets.
