Starwood Tele Neck

  • Starwood Tele - Neck - 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.

Customer service after purchase, forget it

I called to have the polarization changed on the pickup first they tried get me to do it myself second time I called they said I didn't need it and I could put up with the noise. I finally called Seymour Duncan and they got right on it and helped. To me customer service is important if I buy anymore pickups for any of my guitars it won't be from TV Jones

Tele build

Great pickups!!

Inspiring Tele Neck Pickup

I hardly ever used my neck pickup before putting in this Starwood Tele Neck pickup. To my ears, this neck pickup has a Strat/DeArmond vibe and also the clean tone reminiscent of SRV and Jimi. Very responsive when turning the volume up, even the smallest amount. 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. The middle position sounds amazing with this combination. It's the only guitar I want to play now.

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!

Exactly the sound I wanted

Talked with Sean at the 2018 Dallas guitar show and decided on the Starwood Tele pickup set for my Tele redo. I couldn't be happier with these pups. They look and sound amazing, especially with the 4th position switch mod for HB series, and my friends are liking them a lot also.
