Starwood Tele Bridge

  • Starwood Tele - Bridge - Traditional Mount

    After years of requests we finally introduced the Starwood Tele in 2016 and it has stayed in our top 5 best sellers since. We strived to make the Starwood Tele a musical pickup. With a large dynamic range and just the right amount of punchy growl when you dig in, these tele pickups will make you wonder why you ever settled for less.


    Using T-Armond guts to add body and spank, these pickups scream classic tele but with a dynamic and transparent top end. Just the right amount of punchy spank - everything you want out of a tele (and more!).


    The Traditional Tele Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard size Tele-style pickups. This pickup ships with mounting screws and surgical tubing for height adjustment.

  • Output/Power

    DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

    Wiring Notes

Tele overhaul

Overhauled a used Fender Tele I got cheap.. well with these pickups you may assume it's the most expensive Tele. Love these pickups.

Great choice for Telecaster Bridge PUP

As always, very happy with my TV Jones purchase. This pickup replaced a Fender-custom-Shop "Texas Special" bridge, also a very fine pickup. It is paired with a TV Jones Super'Tron in the neck position. I wanted a hot tele bridge pickup to pair with the super'tron neck. This pickup is great, its bright but warm, it has that tele Twang but not too bright, etc.

I've also had the Starwood Tele Neck pickup, also a great pickup. If you want to just swap into standard tele mounts I highly recommend both.

The Perfect Upgrade

This bridge pickup has all the twang I like with the original fender tele stock but much more defined, clearer and not as shrill/thin. It also has a little bit of warmth that gives it a fuller sound. I put both the Starwood Tele Bridge and the Starwood Tele Neck pickups in my 2014 MIM FSR Tele and must say they have an inspiring tone. It's the only guitar I want to play now.


Starwood Tele Bridge

Worth the money !

Replaced the pickups in my USA G&L ASAT Classic semi-hollow with these. The stock MFD pickups were great and if this was my only guitar I would have left them in, I wanted more twang! These things are sent from heaven. I play finger style so I was looking for more note articulation and clarity and boy did I get it! I won't get into the equipment I play but my favorite set up with this guitar now is loud and clean. I'm going to go play some Albert Collins now!
