I installed the set in my Mex Made telecaster and put on flat wound strings with a wound third string. The tone is fantastic, rich, perfect for jazz. These are great pickups.

I have been playing guitar for a long time and I know what aTelecaster is supposed to sound like. These pickups bring back that sound. Stew Mac always provides good instructions for installation. If you’re having problems, give them a call.

I made the wrong choice

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these pickups to replace the pickups in the tele kit I bought from stew mac. The pickups that came with the kit have ceramic magnets and aren't very good. After I installed the golden age pickups, I was reminded of what the original fender pickups sounded like in my 70 and 71 tele. The bridge pickup squeals at high volumes, and when you use a distortion pedal. The bridge pickup on my early teles did the same thing. Squealed at high volumes. Very microphonic. I used the golden age pickups 1 night, than bought a set of Fender Texas specials to replace them. No more squeal. There's nothing wrong with the golden age pickups, they act just like early fender tele pickups. Prone to feedback. That's my opinion.

Replaced the pickups that came with the Stew Mac tele kit (which were junk.. sorry guys, but they were). These pickups (along with the new pots and wiring), are like night and day. This guitar makes me happy now. The bridge pickup is bright and loud and the neck pickup is mellow without being muddy. Huge difference at a reasonable price.

Update:

I removed the cover, and now the neck pickup is exactly what I look for in a neck pickup: zaftig and articulate. The wool is just a turn of the tone knob away when I need it. I don’t even notice an increase in noise without the cover.

Get these pickups. Do it.
