Very good pickups
Chas7, 12.08.2019
I bought a roadworn tele a while back and I upgraded the pickups to these Texas specials.
A big improvement to my ears anyway. If you’ve tried the Tex mex pickups, you’ll like these. They are great for blues, rock, country and jazz. I tried Texas specials on strats but prefer them in teles somehow. Each to their own I guess. They have just about enough heat for my liking.
They will definitely be an instant upgrade on tele standards for sure
There’s enough vids on YouTube etc, hey, check em out

fender texas specials
12.01.2015
after playing with my standard telecaster pups for 2 years i decided that it was time to treat myself and have an upgrade. I first looked online to see what was available and better that what sounded best. i was won over by the fender texas specials due to sound quality and the variety of different styles that they could compete with, not to mention that they are used by many of my favourite guitar players. When i received the pups it was really easy to install them and only took a couple of hours to get the guitar back up and running. the neck pickup has a really nice bit to it and is very hot which is great for that classic blues tone and the bridge pickup i found was good for country music.

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.
