Hoagland Custom is a guitar custom shop located in Columbus, Ohio. We are a DIY based shop, that is, we carry a TON of parts and tools for the do-it-yourselfer.

This is a new, custom-wound, handcrafted Telecaster bridge pickup. It is our signature “FaceMelter®” Tele bridge pickup.


  • ~ Bridge – wound to a SEARING hot 16.6k (with alnico 8 magnets)
  • ~ Wax-potted to eliminate squealing & microphonics
  • ~ Unplated baseplate
  • ~ 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)

This pickups is a VERY BAD BOY!  It is thick, full, and rich sounding with loads of mids and lows.

Guaranteed to irritate your neighbors.

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 better-than-stock-Fender 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.

This pickup is handcrafted by Hoagland Custom and wound specifically FOR YOU. It is NOT “off-the-shelf” pickups. It is NOT a relabeled, imported pickup. This is made in our shop, from scratch, and it is the highest quality pickup 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. There are a lot of variables when it comes to working on guitar electronics (ground loops, conflicts in values of different parts, etc.) and your local guitar tech is experienced to handle troubleshooting for you.

Contact Hoagland Custom with any questions regarding these handcrafted Hoagland Custom pickups, or any other guitar wiring solution that you might need.
