Handwound Telecaster Pickups

Modern, Vintage & Custom Replacement Telecaster Pickups - Made in Manchester

From the classic Tele 'twang' to fatter, grittier outputs all my replacement Telecaster Pickups are handwound here in my workshop in Manchester, UK

I've tried to create Telecaster pickups & replacement sets that chime with certain tones & periods in music but often once you place an order, I'll discuss how we can make the pickup custom to you - If that means over/underwinding a little, different outputs etc etc then no problem, it can be done - they're your pickups, for your guitar.

From vintage inspired sets to modern, higher output replacements & purely custom designs, here are my handwound replacement Telecaster pickups.

Choosing the right replacement pickup can be a daunting process - Give me a call or drop me an email with your requirements (tone/voice/output etc) and I'll either recommend a set or wind you a custom Replacement Telecaster pickup set based on your own personal specifications. I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made so I often tailor the designs to suit each individual guitarist & guitar.

You can buy a complete Bridge & Neck Telecaster Replacement pickup set here - Any combination of Tele Bridge & Neck (There's a discount if you buy a set).

*NOTE: I wind my pickups RW/RP as standard but you can request vintage non-RW/RP or alternative polarities to work with a current pickup - Just give me a call or drop me an email. Also, if you're unsure about matching my pickups with other makers', then just leave me a note asking for a seperate ground wire for the Tele Bridge Baseplate and/or Neck Cover. That way you should be able to ensure correct in-phase whilst still grounding the baseplate & cover.

All my pickups are handwound here at my workshop in Manchester.

The Vintage 'Nocaster' Bridge Tone

My take on the vintage Telecaster (Nocaster) bridge pickup of the early '50s. Flat Alnico 3 polepieces pressed into handcut vulcanised flatwork. I scatterwind (hand feed) the 42AWG (46SWG) thin copper wire to build the coil to around 7.3k. A traditional Telecaster bridge pickup sound; crisp and clear with a bright tone yet warm & round tone due to the Alnico 3 poles.

Vintage cloth pushback hookup wire, wax potted with zinc coated steel baseplate and vintage style string coil protection make this my homage to the early Telecaster twang. A great Tele bridge pickup sound.

I scatterwind (hand feed) the 43AWG thin copper wire to build the coil to around 9.7k giving this pickup a seemingly hotter output than the Vintage Telecaster bridge Pickup 1.

Inspired by the alternative music scene of the mid-to-late '80s this is my overwound take on the vintage Telecaster bridge pickup. The flat Alnico 2 polepieces are slightly warmer sounding than Alnico 5 but with the taller, stronger magnets, I've managed to keep the traditional tele twang and mix this with an aggressive, biting output, great for really driving an amp or running effects.

They've been a real labour of love these pickups and have gone through numerous changes to get them right. A great Tele rhythm or lead pickup if you want more bite and a modern aggressive attack.

Custom Tapped Tele Bridge Pickup - 2 Tele Bridge Pickups in 1

A custom design Tele tapped bridge with dual outputs - essentially a warmer, higher output Tele Bridge Pickup with the coil 'Tapped' - so the pickup can be used with either a brighter, lower output or switched to the higher output, warmer tone. Use either a simple SPDT or Push/Pull Pot to give you 2 different pickups in 1.

Custom, Handwound Tele Tapped Bridge - Specifications

Flat Pole or Vintage Staggered Version

Available in flat pole version for 9.5" radius necks upwards or the more vintage correct staggered version for 7.25" radius necks.

Classic Bright Tele 'Twang' Plus Warmer, Higher Output Option

I designed the Custom Tapped Tele Bridge with outputs to give you my Classic '64 for those vintage Tele tones & 'Twang' plus a much warmer, higher output version with the two concurrent coils combined for a completely different tone, somewhere between my Vintage 1 (Nocaster) and Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) giving you two Tele Bridge Pickups in one - a real versatile Tele Bridge pickup.

One Handwound Coil - Tapped at a certain point

The Pickup works by having an initial lower output coil wound around the custom rod magnets, this has a 'start' and an 'end' giving you an initial output of around 7.5k for that classic, bright tele 'Twang'. The end of this coil is split allowing it also continue in the same direction for an increased number of windings to create a higher output pickup. The 'Tapped' nature of the pickup means you can 'tap into' the coil to 'end' at this given point for the lower output tone, or use the 'start' & final 'end' of the whole coil to give you the 2nd, much warmer, higher output tone. Modern 4-way wire allows this with my colour codes:

1st Coil (7.5k) is:

Start: Green

End: Black (Black & White wires Combined)

2nd Coil (9.5k) is therefore:

Start: Green

End: Red

With a Separate bare wire to ground the Baseplate.

Custom Tapped Tele Bridge Output

I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each pickup is custom made so I can make a custom tapped Tele bridge pickup to suit your own needs or specifications and outputs, you can choose different magnet types from the dropdown menu.

A Warmer, Richer telecaster Bridge Tone

Designed with a custom scatterwound pattern for richer harmonics wound directly around a custom Alnico 2 magnet, the Sonic '60 for Telecaster has a richer, fatter tone yet still keeping much of the classic Tele twang.

Available in two versions, a standard output 7.6k pickup and a hotter 11.4k version, its a great lead pickup if you're looking for something a little different in the Tele bridge position.

The coil is shorter than a standard tele pickup, a little wider and when coupled with the custom Alnico 2 magnet gives a unique warmer, fatter tone rich in harmonics. Alnico 5 is a little more attacking with the Ceramic option a little stronger, brighter still.

Vintage cloth pushback hookup wire, wax potted with copper plated steel baseplate and vintage style string coil protection help make this a unique take on the classic tele sound.

Biting, Attacking, Late '70s Tone

Inspired by the New Wave/Post Punk era of the late '70s & early '80s, the Red '79 Telecaster Bridge Pickup has that brittle, bright attack & scooped mids associated with much of the music of that era. The lower in output, 42AWG coil wrapped around Custom Alnico 5 magnets gives you that cutting tone great with effects (a little phase, a little chorus ;-). I settled on the final design (after many versions) to create a pickup that has that bright, brittle tone without the ice-pick shrillness of lower wound pickups. To achieve this the coil is wound slightly shorter with a looser scatterwound pattern to achieve the balance I was looking for.

With the staggered magnet the tone is concentrated more around the D & G strings for a spikier attack whereas with the flat pole version the tone is rounded a little more as the tone is spread evenly through all strings. There's also the option to have the pickup without the Telecaster baseplate for more of a cutting stratocaster bridge tone.

If you're looking for a set, the Red '79 can be matched up with my Classic Telecaster Neck and I can custom wind them to create a great calibrated set. Just get in touch.

NOTE: If Red really isn't your thing you can always order it in White or Black vintage String as well ;-)

Custom Telecaster Sized, P90 Design Bridge Pickup

A P90 pickup in a standard Telecaster Bridge size. The Creamery Telecaster sized P90 pickup houses two unpolished Alnico 5 magnets and a fat 43AWG coil wound around a custom, handcrafted P90 middle bobbin, hand shaped to fit a standard Telecaster Bridge. Huge, fat single-coil tones still with clarity, presence & a defined voice. Get the grit of a P90 in a standard Telecaster Bridge size. Great fat, rounded clean tones - turn up the gain and let the pickup scream.

The geometry of the standard Tele Bridge Pickup size as opposed to a standard P90 means there will always be a slight difference in tone between the two pickups as the coil will be slightly narower - Its for this reason I don't call it a "true" P90 although I've voiced this pickup to sound close, somewhat similar to my Humbucker sized P90 pickup. A higher output, fat single-coil tone in a standard Tele Bridge sized pickup that also keeps some of the classic Tele characteristics.

Please Note: The Tele-90 bridge is about 4mm taller than a standard Tele Bridge pickups and whilst it will fit many cavities, if you have a shallow bridge cavity, please check. The total height of the pickup with pole screws is 21mm whereas a standard Tele bridge is around 17-18mm. You'll need a minimum cavity space of at least about 14mm to fit the pickup.

Fatter, warmer single-coil neck tones still with clarity, presence & a defined voice. Get the grit of a P90 in a standard Telecaster Neck size. Great fat, rounded clean tones.

The geometry of the standard Tele Neck Pickup size as opposed to a standard P90 means there will always be a slight difference in tone between the two pickups as the coil will be narrower & taller - Its for this reason I don't call it a "true" P90 although I've voiced this pickup to have more of that grittier P90 edge. A higher output, fat single-coil tone in a standard Tele Neck sized pickup.

Tele-90 Neck available in Alnico 5 and Double-Thickness Alnico 5 Options

I've had two designs of magnet custom made for these pickups, a standard option Alnico 5 (described above) and a double-thickness Alnico 5 for a stronger, more attacking, slightly brighter but a little less resonant tone - for a more modern take on my Tele-90 Neck.

Please Note: The Tele-90 Neck with the standard Alnico 5 Magnets and about 15mm tall,with the Double-Thickness Alnico 5 magnets the pickup total height is about 20mm tall. Both should fit into a standard Telecaster Neck cavity.

You can select the Tele-90 Neck to be RW/RP for hum-cancelling in the middle position. Due to the design, the pickup has no cover and as its a fat coil, I use black tape wrapped around the coil to protect it.

*and 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981 & reissue Tele Custom Guitars

My Creamery handwound pickups & sets for the 1972 Custom Telecaster (Custom '72 Tele) are direct drop-in replacements. Featuring a choice of handwound Bridge Pickups and my Classic '71 True Design Wide Range Humbuckers, I make them as a custom calibrated set so there's no real sudden volume jump or drop when switching positions.

Calibrated Replacement Tele Custom Pickup Set - Balanced for Volume across the positions

With the original pickups & reissue pickup sets often unbalanced, there can be sudden volume drops & jumps when switching between Bridge & Neck positions. I often make Tele Custom '72 Pickup Sets to offer much more even volume levels for much more even switching.

True Design Wide Range Humbucker for the Neck Position

Unlike the modern reissue pickups, my replacement '72 Tele Custom neck position Wide Range Humbucker is true to the original '70s Seth Lover design with individual threaded magnets and internal ferrous reflector pates using special parts I have had custom made. Such a versatile pickup, it balances the warmth of a humbucker with the clarity & definition of a single-coil. The original design was more of a 'Doubled'Up' single coil rather than a humbucker; you can read about my true replica Classic '71 Wide Range Humbuckers here.

Available with covers in custom yellowed bare nickel, nickel, chrome and my hand-aged chrome or nickel covers, you can order a single neck position here - Neck Position Wide Range Humbucker for a '72 Custom Tele.

Balanced Bridge Position Pickup

With the bridge pickup of the '72 Custom Telecaster & Tele Custom reissue guitars often much lower in output, there can be somewhat of a sudden volume jump when switching through the positions. I often custom make a '72 Tele custom bridge position to counter this and be more balanced volume-wise. Whether it be a variation on my Vintage 1 Nocaster, Vintage 2 Broadcaster, Hot Alnico 5 or Alt-88 Tele Bridge Pickup I make the set calibrated to be more even, whilst still keeping to the characteristics of the classic Tele bridge.

Hi Jaime, just got them wired in this week. Sound absolutely brilliant, tried them playing live as well some recording, great!

Now it is just a question which guitar should get pickups next!

Pétur Hallgrímsson (John Grant / Sigur Rós / Kylie / Sinead O'Connor) - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Set


Your pickups are all over this new record - Edwyn Collins is mixing at the moment - the guitar sounds AMAZING!!! We want more pickups... Eric, my lead guitarist, ended up using my Tele because it sounded so great through my old Tremolux. Now he want's some... Think I might want the hotter option in my rosewood Tele too... I almost feel obliged to mention you on the album they're THAT good!! Hope all is well, Joe.

Joe McAlinden - Vintage 2 (Boadcaster) Set

Hi Jaime, Just installed the p90 into my tele. Just managed to tear myself away from it to give yu some feedback. Like all the other pickups you've built me, I love the tone. I love p90's when they're well made and this one certainly is. 90's have a reputation for a raw aggressive sound but they can be beautifully melodic too I believe, especially in the neck position.

This one works really well with the light but very resonant piece of agathis that my tele is made out of, sure it has that raw sound but play the right chords and it has a lovely soft jazzy tone to it and it takes a slide wonderfully well.

I reckon that overwound alnico 3 and the neck p90 are the ultimate slide combo, I gotta really work on those skills to get the best out of it, but p90's are like that. Many thanks again Jaime, will be in touch when the next project comes along

Andrew Osbourne - Tele-90 Neck

Hi Jaime, Just wanted to drop you a quick note as I've finally got round to installing that set of Tele '64s I bought from you a while back. Lovely stuff mate, my Tele now has a wonderfully springy, almost acoustic quality to it. I love it. Cheers man

Tom Janssen - Classic ’64 Tele Set

Had my new pickups fitted a few weeks ago. Having read the reviews I was expecting them to be good.

They are amazing, thank you very much they’ve transformed my tele. I’ll be telling anyone that’ll listen about the brilliant quality your company can provide. Thanks again,

Eric McPhail - Classic ’67 Tele Bridge, Baby ’71 Wide Range Neck (Calibrated Set)

Hi Jaime, Just received the pickups today. Thanks for making them. Sounds great.

Jack Lian - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Set

When I was back home in Macclesfield in March you fixed me up with a Vintage 2 set for my Tele, wow, just wow! They are just perfect, a fantastic sound and quality Ive not previously experienced.

Martin Watson - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Set

Hi Jaime, Just a note to say thanks for the pickups and the useful advice you gave me helping me to choose the right ones for me. They do sound fantastic in my ‘72’ Telecaster Thinline – everything I had hoped for, twang, sustain and great value for the price! Cheers,

Richard Collett - ’72 Tele Replacement Set (Vintage 2 Bridge, Classic ’71 Neck)

Jaime The pickups are amazing. The bridge cuts through but maintains the low-mids and the neck pickup is super warm but sounds defined when overdriven and has clean, huge low end for days. I actually cheated the top end of the neck pickup closer to the strings to balance the warmth I was getting from the walnut body. Many Thanks.

Jeffrey Hillman - Classic ’67 Tele Set

I have to give you some feedback on the recent telecaster pickups you made me. I don't know if you can remember but we originally discussed what would sound good fitted to my Parker for versatility. These pick ups were the recommendation and you got it spot on. It was used in my function band this weekend and sounded amazing and worked perfectly throughout on all the genres of music we cover. Thank you.

Neil Stern - Custom Telecaster Set

They're great, really impressive. Nice combination of a sweet singing sound, and some crunch when I dig in with the pick. Still dialling in what sounds best with the amp, but the combo of the HB and single coil works really well. Just what I was hoping for, so many thanks. All the best,

Keith Gray - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) & Classic ’71 Neck

Just got the tele pickup fitted, very impressed. Just as described, fatter but still plenty of twang, and a little natural reverb or is that my ears?!, great pickup thanks.

Andrew Osbourne - Sonic ’60 Tele Bridge

Hi Jaime, Pickups arrived today. Thank you so much - absolutely wonderful sounds - everything that I asked for / hoped for. The Baby 71 neck is actually better than the original 70's Widerange that I had (and hankered after again) - it's got a tighter bottom end, and is generally more focused as you said it would be, and yet still warm and clear (the original could be a little "wooly" sometimes). The Vintage 2 bridge is somehow twangy, cutting, sparkly and yet warm all at once. (How do you do that?!).The middle is a great combination of both to give a lovely, chiming rhythm tone. Only had the chance to try them through my little Vox practice amp so far - I can't wait to hear them properly through my old valve amp tomorrow. Thanks again, and sorry that I was becoming impatient - these are well worth the wait!

Matt Woodruff - Vintage 2 Tele Bridge - Baby ’71 Neck (Calibrated Set)

Hi Jaime! Just wanted to thank you again for this superb pickups! These are the most balanced,clear and dynamic pickups I ever used in this guitar/AV 52 Tele/This is the fifth set in the guitar that I am trying and I think they will stay forever in it! My search is over! The Extra width neck is pure Strat sound, if not better, and the bridge Classic 64 is absolutely perfect Tele bridge- clear and powerful!

The only negative thing in this situation ,negative mostly for my pocket,hahaha, is that may be I will have to change the pickups in all of my guitars now! Thanks again!

Stoian Pavlov - Classic ’64 Tele Bridge - Extra Width Tele Neck

Hi Jaime, Just a quick one to say thanks for the pickups, they arrived couple of weeks back and I've only just found the time to install them. The bridge pickup is now every bit as good as the other Tele bridge you made me and the Wide Range humbucker is simply amazing, I can't praise it enough. Both pickups now reside in what is easily my favourite guitar! All the best,

Joe Hooper - Custom Bridge & Wide Range Neck set

Hi Jaime, Just put the new tele pickups in last night. Guitar not set up so action about a foot high, but the sound.... Awesome. Will post a review for you. Cheers

Barry Dobson - Classic ’64 Tele Bridge - Extra Width Tele Neck

Hey Jaime - Pickups sound great! Definitely gives me a different palette of sounds compared tomy my previous set up! Thanks again!

Micah McCuistion - Tele-90 Bridge & Neck Set

Hi Jaime, I’m blown away by them!

Boon Gould - Tele-90 Set

Hi Jaime, My Tele is now with its Creamery PU set. I’m really impressed by them. Clean sounds are fantastic and each string and note are well-defined. I didn’t think PUs could sound like that. Really great job.Thank you.

Thierry Phillippe - Vintage 2 Tele Bridge - Classic ’71 Neck

Hi Jaime Sounds awesome!! :-)

Andy lewis - Alt ’88 Tele Bridge

Hi Jaime, Just played the custom Sonic 60 in my parts tele esquire build, with modded Eldred mod.

The pickup sounds great at high volume and even under high gain stays clear and balanced. Chords are so defined and It produces very thick single notes that cut through extremely well.

Your work sounds great and looks amazing. .. The red string option is a really cool! I have attached some pictures for your records, thanks again for everything!

Dom Poon - Sonic ’60 Tele Bridge

I finally got around around to installing a couple of other sets I've bought from you - a 12-pole humbucker set and a tele set (extra width neck and vintage 2 bridge). They're the best I've ever played. I can't stop playing every single combination of them. They seem 'solid as a tank' in how they sound, if that makes any sense. There's something about them that is just 'more' than anything I've ever played.

Looking forward to the next couple of sets landing on my doorstep.

Dennis Guy - Vintage 2 Tele Bridge - Extra Width Tele Neck

Hi Jamie, just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks. I just got back from the first practice where I've been able to use the Tele and I'm blown away with the improvement the pickups have made.

The Sonic 60 is scarily good, it's really pokey but so controlled when I pile all the fuzz on. I wouldn't call it precise, rather it's natural and balanced, and the attack is really clean, even through all that fuzz, it's exactly what I'd hoped for and my band-mates were also suitably impressed. The Tele-90 is sweet as can be, the sustain is buttery and long, really beautiful nuanced sounding pickup, especially clean; somehow it makes vibrato sound better than on any of my other guitars - I'm not sure what mojo you infused it with to manage that, but it brings out so much of what (and how) you play. As an aside - I also had a Fender TBX tone control installed at the same time as the pickups, it does it's thing with the Sonic-60, but sounds especially great on the Tele-90, it really opens out in a nice way, especially for more strummed playing, really cool gizmo.

Anyway, my Tele now sounds a million times better than my other guitars so they're gonna gather dust for a while, until I can put another order in with you and I'll be recommending you to all my other guitarist friends.

Thanks again and keep up the amazing work.

Alex Caithness - Sonic '60 Tele Bridge - Tele-90 Neck

Hello Jaime,

I finally installed those pickups you sent me into my rosewood f/board Mex tele, and they sound absolutely superb, to my ears. I have played a couple of gigs, with it/them, this month and it's very noticeable how much 'mellower' and clear my tele sounds.

Phillip Juon - Vintage 1 (Nocaster) Tele Pickup Set

Hi Jamie,

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I've had some time to play with the Broadcasters now and I have to say I'm very happy indeed!

The tone was exactly what I was looking for, and a big improvement over the stock PUs that came with my Mexican tele. I would also recommend leaving the neck pickup uncovered to get a really loud crunchy tone! The bridge is excellent too, nice and snappy.

Once again I'm very happy with the results, it's like having a new guitar! I'm thinking about getting a Thinline next year so I will definitely consider The Creamery for a set of wide range humbuckers.

All the best

Fraser Douglas - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Pickup Set

The pups You have sent me are simply amazing!

It's not only me who's stating this ,but anyone who just played my own built tele I 've used them in.

Unfortunatelly my English command is not good enough to express the real satisfaction offered by Your work's result

Thank You Jamie

Octavian Popovici - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Bridge & Classic ’71 Wide Range Neck (Calibrated Set)

Received the pickups in great time and they are both installed. No feedback or grounding issues anymore, the sound is crystal. They are great! Really impressed. Annoyingly I have no excuse to buy another guitar now...but in all seriousness thanks mate.

I already have a very jealous brother/band member who is now browsing your hum bucking pages.

I will be recommending you and most definitely buying in the future.

Thanks again!

Doug Jakeman - Tele-90 Bridge & Neck Set

Hi Jaime,

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the pickups. The sound is exactly what I was after. The Baby 71 is all the best bits of a humbucker mashed with all the best bits of a single coil. Such clarity and enough power at the same time. The bridge pickup is cutting and nasty (in a good way) without the shrillness that teles can suffer from. Together they make a great clean rhythm tone. I love them and will definitely come to you next time I'm doing a build.

Next Sunday I'm playing at a festival in Portugal. If I get any good pics where you can make out the logo I'll send you them.

All the best

Sam Astley - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Bridge - Baby '71 Wide Range Neck - Calibrated/Balanced Set

Hey Jaime, I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love the pickups you made. The more I play the guitar the more I fall in love with the tone. I get such a great spanky tone from the bridge position. It is more of the Rolling Stones type Tele sound than the country twang which is exactly what I was after. You did a great job

Austin, Mercy Seat Pedals - Classic '64 Tele Set

I installed the Vintage 2 into my Broadcaster clone. That IS it!

That is the early 50's Tele sound I was after.

Sami Saarinen - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Bridge Pickup

Hi, Jaime.

Just letting you know that I've had the pickups in a couple of weeks now, and am really impressed with the sound - I have quite a high gain amp, and where the original bridge pickup sounded a little drowned out the overwound Sonic '60 sounds just like a Tele should, but with a much thicker sound, and exactly the same twang and clarity as before.

The Wide-Range neck pickup is just infinitely better than the original all the way from the bottom to the top, and I'm shocked at how well the pickups mix, especially in the mids. Thanks a lot

Jack Bradley - Sonic '60 Tele Bridge & Classic '71 Wide Range Humbucker Neck

Hi Jaime. I bought a tele 90 and matching single coil off you a while back. I was pleased with the improvement to my sound, however last week I finally got my tech to remove the tbx tone control and fit a cts pot and vitamin q capacitor. Finally I am hearing my telecaster sounding exactly like it should, it's really quite magic and the pickups are singing with gritty glory. My tech has been won over, so hopefully you'll find some more orders coming in from Notts. Keep doing what you do! All the best.

Nick Jonah Davis - Tele-90 Bridge, Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Neck

I installed the pickups yesterday and I just like to say I'm really very happy with them. They've made a world of difference, the Tele now sounds like it should. The standard pickups on a mexican tele are just woolly compared, there was no real definition, especially in the neck. A P90 sounds lovely and fat as well.

Josh Hutton - Tele-90 Bridge & Calibrated Vintage 1 (Nocaster) Tele neck

Installed the pickups a week ago and did a few recordings and a couple of gigs.

All I can say is that they are awesome. The sound is incredible, easy to find the sweet spot and they match perfectly.

The bridge pickup has "body" and clarity at the same time and the "wide range" neck is... what can I say ? Perfect as a humbucker AND as a single coil. Actually it's the best single coil sound I've heard in a Tele neck !

All in all you 've done a great job Jamie. Thanks so much.

George Simatos - Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Bridge - Baby '71 Wide Range Neck

Hi Jaime,

I've finally completed my Esquire build and I have to say that a side-by-side comparison with my Fender Telecaster '52 Re-Issue through a valve amp was very revealing - the Esquire is so lively with a fantastic tone leaving my '52 trailing in the distance. Thank you for doing such a great job.

Phil Truman - Custom Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Bridge

Thank you for the Telecaster pick-ups you recently made me, they are class!

Neil Stern - Classic '64 Telecaster Set

Hi Jaime just to let You know that the pick up sounds unbelievable It has been worth It to wait for such a extremely good pick up the guitar has done such a change that has well pass my best expectations. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It has been the first but It won't be the last!

Carme Baro Picher - Vintage Tele Bridge / Classic '71 Wide Range Neck Humbucker

Thanks for the pickup. I compared it to the twisted tele neck in my friends custom shop tele. It sounds very close and gives the strat neck pickup tone in a tele that I was looking for

Extra Width Tele Neck - Matt Forest

I've now had the chance to play with the pick ups a few times with two different bands, one where I use a clean sound, the other is more overdriven rock and I'm well-pleased. Initially the luthier had put in his personal preference of a 0.033 cap and the cleans were just a tad bright, so I swapped it out for a 0.047 and though the difference was small, it gave me the sound I was hoping for; full-bodied, warm cleans and a lovely snarl when overdriven without the harshness of the previous, stock pups. I'm impressed also by the balance between strings. The bottom end is more defined and the top end is no longer strident. With just a bit of tweaking, I can get a lovely, bright twang or a dirty growl without losing any of the definition.

Also, as these are wound hotter than the stock pups, when I switch from my HS Filtertron Gretsch to the Tele I no longer have to mess about with the volume/levels on amp/pedals so it sits in the live mix the same. A quick tweak of the guitar tone/volume knobs and I'm away...

So, thanks for the great workmanship from another satisfied customer.

Paul - Vintage 1 (Nocaster) Tele Bridge | Extra Width tele Neck

I've finally got all the pieces for the guitar I was building around your pickups. I am really happy with the range of sounds I can get from your pickups, real vintage twang on the bridge with a whole range from the neck.

Ian England - Vintage 2 Bridge, Classic '71 Neck balanced set

Finally wired up the Tele today. The pickups are fantastic! I'm very happy. I'm gonna do some pics and clips and start telling everyone how great they are .... Been living with my Creamery Tele pickups for a while now. Best pups I've ever owned. I can't put my guitar down! It doesn't get any better than finding pups that make you want to play more
Ed 'Shed' Mitchell - Guitarist, Total Guitar & Guitar World Magazines

My black "Wilko" Tele, fitted with a great set of (Hot Alnico 5) pickups from The Creamery - Neck pickup might just be the best I've ever heard. Bridge cuts like a knife!
Steve Robinson (Guitar Tech for over 20yrs)

The only thing better than having pickups hand-made, is having pickups hand-made that sound even better than you hoped they would! Dynamic, versatile, remarkable clarity and well made - they truly are fantastic. Thanks!
Ben Butterworth

The Hot Alnico 5 Tele Neck pickup is in! Help ma Boab! Everything I'd hoped for and more. Warm, balanced and just a bit snarly.
Dave MacLeod

Cheers Jaime !!!! Got the new pickup (Hot Tele Bridge) fitted.....it sounds amazing !! Loads off oooomph but still retaining that great "tele" sound...........I love it!
Murray McDowell

"Got the new pickup fitted.....it sounds amazing !! Loads off oooomph but still retaining that great "tele" sound...........i love it! Thanks for everything. I'm spreading the word …. First outside gig with new pup yesterday - it sang! Thanks again Jaime!"
Murray McDowell

Pickups arrived yesterday. They sound great. Thank you. I have another few Telecasters to make so i will come to you again.
Nathan Bowler, Nathans guitar workshop

Just played my first gig with the new vintage tele broadcaster pickup. It sounds AMAZING !! Everything I have ever wanted ! On the bridge pickup with a bit of reverb added was like a step back to the 50s in tone. Even my bass player commented that it was like BB kings tone from his 50s classic recordings. When we rocked it up with a bit of tube screamer it was out and out rock n roll ! I cannot recommend your pickups enough Jaime ! They are everything you describe them as and more. Great Pickups...great service ! I look forward to taking the tele with me on tour in the summer with the blues festivals and club dates we have lined up ! Thanks again for giving me the tone I have dreamed of ! Seriously, the tele sounds amazing..exactly as you described...the vintage bridge sounded full and fat but with plenty of bite. And It really made me play my ass off ! When your tone is there you can just concentrate on playing...I don't think I have ever sounded so good !
Dave Dixon

I received the Alt '88 Tele Pickup Set and stuck them right in. I LOVE THESE PICK UPS! Yes, they scream as expected but I can still pick country without getting itchy. I have been reccomending you to anyone who asks and many who don't. I have to admit that I am not really a "build up" kind of guy. all of my other guitars are dead stock. I've always been a PAF player and most of my guitars are Gibsons, I am a vintage collector. I have a few old strats and a mix of other stuff too, but I have only had one Tele in my life and it is an all stock all original 1952. I've never been completely sold on the delivery I get from Teles. I must say that I am a born again Tele fan and it really is completely due to your pups.
Bryan Kweskin

I got the pickups through and soldered them in. You can add me to the list that these Alt '88 overwound Tele pickups are absolutely awesome. I love em and so does the guy who’s guitar i have custom refurbed. I’ll be recommending your pickups to everyone ... I’ll be in contact again soon to put in an order for some of your Tele wide range pickups I have got my eye on; this time for my own guitar. Cheers again
Tom Parry, Tom Parry Guitars

"I meant to email sooner to let you know the Alnico II Broadcasters are perfect and have a wonderful tone - very bluesy and soulful. You have a winner there - really excellent.
Ian Wilson

"Honestly Jaime, from now on any time I want new pickups I shall definitely come back to The Creamery. I've already got a couple of upgrades in mind, but that might be a little further down the line. Thanks again for all your assistance with this. First class pickups and first class service too!!"
