First thing noticed with a nice dollop of gain is, these are rather quiter compared to a traditional P90 Design.

Very open sounding pickups, with a nice combination of Fat/Punch and top end chime, without being overly scooped.

a bit different to the Gnarly 90 Set (see review here) which IMO is a tough pickup to beat,, but these Tel 90s are just as cool and i dare say, have the best qualities of both a single coil (clarity and cut) and humbuckers (fat/chunk).

Can defnitely see these pickups suiting a huge variety of playing styles.

installed in a deluxe style tele partcaster with 500K pots, here are some sound clips
