Noiseless indeed
Steebz 28.06.2021
These are very good, if not great, pickups. High quality build and good sounds. Bridge is twangy and spanky without being too ice-pickey. Neck is very warm and round. And almost totally free of hum! One problem though: the bridge pickup wants to see a 250K volume pot while the neck pickup needs a 500K volume pot if you want to get the most out of it. I suspect you'll also need to install the Kinman wiring harness, and it's a mystery to me why this isn't clearly advertised and why Thomann doesn't stock the harness. I installed this in my standard 250K harnessed tele and while the pickups sounded very good, I would always end up eq'ing for either bridge or neck. The neck pickup would only give me jazz tones -- it really doesn't do anything else in a 250K pot config. Bridge and middle position are very good though. I ended up swapping these for Fender Nocaster pickups and to me these are much more versatile. Kinman bridge would rock in an Esquire though.
Pros: very good build, nifty sounds, no noise
Cons: Don't expect a perfect set with standard tele wiring, you're gonna need the Kinman harness to get the most out of these.

These are the best sounding and most versatile tele pickups I've ever heard. Excellent quality and almost zero noise.

Definitely worth the investment, would buy them a hundred times over.

These pickups are incredible!

I installed these pickups into my Fender Telecaster. I was looking for a bit of a 50's tone. These pickups certainly fitted the bill.

The sound was also very similar to the Hohner telecaster that Prince played. Which made me love them even more.

Price wise, they are pretty well priced. I'm sure you could get similar pickups for cheaper but I don't believe they'd be as good quality.

I honestly can't find any cons with them. Installation was quick and easy with great instructions.

If anything was to happen to my Telecaster, I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.
