The Hot Rails for Tele set will transform your Telecaster into a fire breathing beast with an unapologetic, mean sound that’s got the power of a set of full-sized high-output humbuckers.

The rich midrange harmonics and tight low end give it a crunch that makes this pickup great for all types of rock and metal. The matching Hot Rails Tele Rhythm pickup fights back with full, warm humbucker tone in a size that drops right into your stock pickup slot. It delivers smooth tone for rhythm playing, and fat single notes for lead work.
