This is a custom-wound, handcrafted set of two (2) Telecaster pickups with the neck wound to “Brad Paisley” style specs.


  • ~ Neck –wound to 6.7k with alnico 3 magnets, flush magnets (no cover)
  • ~ Bridge – wound to 7.1k with alnico 5 magnets, flush magnets (unplated baseplate included)
  • ~ Wax-potted to eliminate squealing & microphonics
  • ~ Vintage-style, cloth-covered leads
  • ~ Handcrafted with all “Made in the USA” parts (bobbins in North Carolina, magnets in Arkansas, pickup wire in Wisconsin, lead wire in New York)

With specs used by Brad Paisley, this set of Tele pickups sounds AMAZING!

The neck pickup is wound to “Twisted Tele” spec and produces more highs and is less muddy than a standard Tele neck pickup. It features a taller coil and a little larger coil wire resulting in a brighter sounding pickup. A lot of reviewers say that it sounds closer to a Strat pickup than a Tele pickup. Also, the bridge is slightly underwound resulting in a pickup that has more sparkle, is brighter and has a “twangier” tone as well.

The bridge pickup is wound to a lower output than a stock Tele bridge pickup resulting in a cleaner, snappier, brighter tone than stock.

There are a lot of variables that go into creating, or recreating a tone. While each item in your signal chain is important, no one item will do the job. Pickups, along with the way your guitar is wired, are probably the most important parts in your signal chain. Changing out the pickups/wiring has the biggest impact on your sound. If you are looking for a Brad Paisley kind of tone, THIS is where you start.

Premium quality pickups that are handwound when you order them. We can custom-tailor the winding or the types of magnets to any spec that you’d like.

These pickups are handcrafted by Hoagland Custom and wound specifically FOR YOU. They are NOT “off-the-shelf” pickups. They are NOT relabeled imported pickups. We make these in our shop and they are the highest quality pickups you can buy made from 100% American made parts.

While all of our pickup & wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily by most do-it-yourselfers, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install them for you.
