The Joe Barden Modern
T-Style Tele Pickup Set consists of a Modern T-Bridge pickup and a
Gatton T-Neck pickup. This is a great pickup combination for adding
volume, tone, and bite to your favorite Tele.
Modern T Bridge Pickup
Modern T bridge offers a darker more aggressive tone and feel. It was
originally designed for a leading artist who wanted more beef in the
bridge position of his Tele. The Modern T Set retains its pure Tele
vibe, but with a bit more attitude for today's Modern Country and Rock
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.
Gatton T-Neck Pickup
Danny Gatton T-Neck Tele Pickup is a dual blade T-Style pickup. It was
inspired by Danny Gatton, one of best tele guitarists to have lived.
Danny wanted a new model of high-end replacement pickups as opposed to
those that were merely variations on established designs or basic repair
Originally designed for Danny (and with Danny testing
every step of the way) they have become the first choice of professional
Tele players worldwide. The tone of these pickups can be described as
absolutely vintage in character, but with greatly expanded fidelity. The
lows, mids, and highs are all equal in strength, eliminating the thin,
or ""tinny"" sound that is often a problem with Tele-styled guitars.
T-Neck is remarkable in that it can be adjusted so that its output is
actually equal to the T-Bridge, thus solving the age-old Tele player's
complaint: huge output differences between the bridge and neck pickups.
While these pickups can be adjusted to greatly exceed the output level
of stock pickups, the authentic Tele twang and snap is maintained, and
any kind of noise, be it hum, hiss, or squeal, is completely eliminated.
pickups fit standard Tele body routs and require no modifications to
the instrument. They utilize 4 conductor shielded cable to allow for any
possible wiring combination and are supplied with wiring diagrams and
mounting hardware to facilitate installation.
Both pickups mate
well together and can be balanced thru height adjustment to each
player's preference. Like all JBE pickups there is no hum or noise and
the pickups fit into any standard Tele body rout.
