Tame the twang and give your Tele increased midrange cut and punch. If you were to begin with a vintage tele neck pickup, wind it hotter, mellow the highs and enhance the midrange response, the result would be the Hot Tele Rhythm. The treble response is still articulate, but it is smoothed out by the more aggressive low end. Great for full sounding chords and sweet solo work. The absence of a steel bottom-plate gives you a fat, full punch in both the low and mid-range frequencies, yet it retains the muscular twang of a vintage style lead pickup. Great for Telecaster players who demand a more powerful lead tone, with extra presence and drive. Flat, hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets and a special high output coil wind to give you enough midrange power to cut through like a humbucker.

I'm pretty loyal to Seymour Duncan products, because I've never been disappointed in one. This Telecaster neck pickup is no exception -- I favor the tone of the Tele neck pickup for clean leads, and this higher-output model has the clarity and strong output to balance the Alnico II model I installed in the bridge. Love me some clean Telecaster tone!
