Fender Texas Special

Texas Special Tele Pickup Set

Alongside the Stratocaster, the Telecaster is one of the most successful electric guitars of all time. For both of these, Fender also offers a wide range of pickups. The Texas Special is adapted for the Strat, developed on a Tele, but has its very own sound. If you are looking for a vintage Tele sound, but would like something a bit more powerful, then you'll find oneself well served by this pickup.

Expect a loud Tele twang that gets out a range that covers fat slightly distorted sounds, up to a harder distorted sound convincingly. Razor-sharp trebles, as well as increased output and a richer, clear sound, will bring to all amps a reason to rejoice and sing, making these pickups the ultimate equipment of well-equipped Tele-players! Designed for the Custom Shop amongst other American Classic Telecasters, such as the James Burton Standard and the Merle Haggard Tribute.

The bridge pickup features the obligatory copper-plated steel base plate, which provides a scorching output, presence and midrange. Fender recommends these pickups for their 4-way pickup circuit, which allows for serial and parallel operation of both pickups.

Great pickups from Fender

Martin4035, 26.06.2015
Fitted these to my Stormshadow Tele, and have been quite happy with them. They're a little hotter than some, but still fundamentally a Tele pickup, so bright and twangy, but with a bit more going on in the mids.
If you play really clean, or for some other reason want a lower output pickup, then you might prefer the Nocaster set, which is a tiny bit sweeter, but if you want to play a more varied range of styles including heavy rock, then this set is ideal. When you add overdrive, these have a little bit less of that scratchiness you can get with Tele pickups. With the tone rolled back a bit, you can play metal on these, but they'll still do a nice country clean.
Quality wise, they're 100%, as you would expect from Fender.
