    Default Props for the SD Broadcaster pups!

    I have to give props about these pups! I am in love with how they gave my Teles the classic Bakersfield sound! Iíve converted all my Teles to these with the exception of 1 which has the SD Stacked Vintage pups. Again another fabulous set! Well done SD! Iím officially a fanboy! Anyone else have the same success?

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the props!
    The Broadcaster set is my favorite traditional Tele set. I am happy it works for you too.

    I really like the Broadcaster bridge pickup. It sounded great in the Esquire build I did several years back. However, I needed a little more output and went another route. But that Broadcaster pickup delivers the goods. I really like the snarl it has with some overdrive.

    I dropped a Broadcaster bridge in my Tele and have never wanted to remove it, 10 years on. Every recorded Tele sound Iíve been able to make with it.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    I love the Duncan Broadcaster pickup. It's the perfect affordable "beefy vintage" Tele bridge pickup, if you can live with the string balance you get with flat poles (low E is a bit louder, and D much quieter, than they "should be"). I have it in my green Esquire build. Second hand market (from a forum bro here some years ago), perfect condition, 35 bucks. Can't beat that tone for that price.

    To the OP, in a slight off topic matter: how are the Vintage Tele Stacks? Too much of a difference in character and tone in comparison to non-stacked Tele pickups?
