Comments about Fender Tex-Mex Telecaster Pickups:
These are the pickups that come with the stock 50s Road Worn Telecaster. I had fully expected to replace them with some boutique Tele pickups that I already own at the first opportunity. But after several months of gigging with them, I still have these Tex Mex pickups in the guitar. They fill a need for me.
I already have a nice traditional sounding Telecaster with low-wind, vintage-style pickups. It sounds great for the typical twangy telecaster sound many of us know and love. But for blues and blues rock, not so much.
These Tex Mex Tele pickups, on the other hand, have a higher output, more mids, and less extended highs and lows than a traditional low-wind Tele pickup. I love the darker neck pickup that pushes my amps more like a humbucker, but with single-coil clarity. Great, warm jazz sound with the guitar volume turned down. The bridge pickup rocks with plenty of growl, without being harsh. It can still twang while doing a better job of driving the front end of my tweed amps into smooth overdrive. And the middle switch position offers up the same Tele middle tone that works great for funky rhythm (with guitar volume lower) and nasal blues honk (when cranked up).
So if you are looking for traditional Tele twang, I would go with something like the Fender Original Vintage pickups for around the same price. But if you are looking for a little higher output, more midrange, and pickups that still sound good clean but can really rock with some gain applied, these fill the bill for me. I love them.
