OVERVIEW

Particularly suited for today's modern country and rock styles with more aggressive tone and performance.

The Modern T-Style bridge pickup is similar in appearance to its Gatton T-Style counterpart. It was originally designed for a leading artist who wanted more beef in the bridge position of his Tele, but did not want to sacrifice the great tone offered by the Gatton T-Styles. This pickup is a simple way to give your Tele more power.

The Modern T-Style bridge pickup fits that need with its heavier coil winding and more aggressive tone and performance. The Modern T-Style bridge pickup is particularly suited for today's modern country and rock styles, while the original Gatton T-Styles remain the pickups of choice for Tele overall Tele tone, twang, and performance.

The Modern T-Style is a bridge pickup variant only. The Gatton T-Style neck pickup remains unchanged and performs flawlessly with the new Modern T-Style winding in the bridge position.

FEATURES
Heavier coil winding
Stronger tone and performance
Designed for modern country and rock styles
Fits standard Tele bridge pickup routs

Great Sounding Pickup

Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) Modern T Tele Bridge Pickup:

This pickup solves my original dilemma with the Barden Tele pickups. I always loved the Neck pickup but found the "Gatton" Bridge one to be too bright and edgy. The "Modern" has tad less treble and more pronounced mids with perhaps a little more push. I really like this one and would recommend it.

      Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) Modern T Tele Bridge Pickup:

      This pickup replaced the JBE Gatton in the bridge of an alder Tele. I had also tried a DiMarzio Area T Hot in this guitar.

      Of the three pickups, the Gatton had the best clean sound, beating out the Modern version ever-so-slightly. However, the Gatton does not distort well, and using it with even light amounts of gain produced fizzy and shrill tones. The Modern fixes this problem. Don't get me wrong, you will never confuse it for a high output humbucker.

      Overall, the difference between the Gatton and the Modern isn't all that large. It seems that it has a bit more output and the highs are tamed a bit. It still has incredible articulation when played clean or with mild overdrive. It is usable with high gain, too.

      I like this pickup better than the DiMarzio Area Hot T. I find that it has a more unique sound and while the Area T has a fuller sound, the JBE Modern is more articulate and sensitive to pick attack. This is no knock on DiMarzio. I have their pickups in other guitars I own and love them.

      My one mild gripe about the JBE pickups is that I wish that they made a "Modern" version of the neck pickup as it would be nice to have the extra muscle in the neck position, too. Right now the neck feels under-powered compared to the bridge.

      After a few months of having the Modern in my Tele, I feel like I found my tone.

      Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) Modern T Tele Bridge Pickup:

      Great pickup! I replaced a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in my tele and the sound of this one is fantastic! Very full range and balanced. The Hot Rails was a bit midrangy for me and not really Tele sounding. (Bought it that way.) Ive got EMGs, Duncans, Fender, Gibson and now this one and this is as good as any of them if not better. (My Gibson Les Paul is still my favorite guitar all around but my Tele is a close 2nd now.)
