    Most Teisco style pickups are surface mounted in rings although at least two of those pictured look like they do have ears so you could probably get them to fit in a custom routed pickguard. They have a reputation for being weak, noisy and microphonic. They are a favorite for slide, and blues. The gold foil series are highly sought after. I have never heard one myself.

    This might work as a replacement http://cgi.ebay.com/GFS-New-York-Vin...QQcmdZViewItem

    Ry Cooder used Teisco guitars or the pickups?

    They are more of a Blues / slide guitar pickup i think more trashy and dirty noisy pickups
