The Hog Tele Pickups

Lead Time: 4 Weeks.


The Hog Tele pickups are all about big, fat, tone but with the clarity and bite of a lower wound bridge pickup. The Hog leans towards a P-90 in output, feel and behavior and so share characteristics of the Revel Mojo Steel Pole pickups. But the mids, while present and full, have less of that middy swirl and are more clear while also being full and gritty.

These are built with big .250″ Alnico V magnets and wound with 43 AWG wire in the bridge and the neck. The Hogs are terrific Tele pickups if you’re looking for something different in your Tele and your Tele tone while retaining the twang.

Copper plated base plate and vintage push back wire.

Bridge: 11k, Neck: 8k


Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. Both have very limited meaning and are, in many ways, lies. The best player can make the lousiest guitar loaded with the cheapest pickups played through the lamest amp sound downright amazing. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.
