Seymour Duncan 11208-14 overview

  • 1Description

The Quarter Pound Tele Set from Seymour Duncan delivers the highest output from their hand-built line of single-coil pickups for Telecaster electric guitars. Both pickups feature a single-coil design with hand-polished 1/4" alnico 5-rod magnets, Forbon flatwork, along with a traditional chrome-plated cover for the neck pickup. In addition, both pickups are wax potted for squeal-free performance.

The bridge pickup delivers robust lead tones, and chords that are rich with sparkly midrange harmonics. To complement the potent sound of the bridge pickup, the neck pickup's overwound coils provide a powerful midrange that cuts through any mix without sounding bright or brash, creating huge-sounding chords, and full, fat lead tones.

In short, if humbucker-level punch and saturation with the midrange growl of a P-90 is the sound you desire from true single-coil pickups, the Quarter Pound Tele Set may be just what you need. Like all Seymour Duncan pickups, the Quarter Pound Tele Rhythm and Lead pickups are hand-built in Santa Barbara, California.

    Seymour Duncan 11208-14 reviews

    Quarter Pound Tele Set for Neck and Bridge is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These things kick like a mule. Good Lord. My #1 guitar started life as a 1993 MIJ reissue Esquire. I added a mongrel Strat pickup of some type in the neck. I love that guitar. But my #2 is a Tele with P-Rails in it, which are great in their own right, but they have dramatically higher output than my Esquire's Broadcaster-type bridge pickup does. So in a rig set up for #1, #2 comes along and pushes everything way too hard - makes the drives sound fizzy and the fuzz sound apocalyptic. And when I'm set up for #2, #1 couldn't find any dirt with both hands and a map. I was using a compressor to even them out, but I have finite pedalboard space, and I want a compressor to make my guitars quack the way God intended, so my #1 needed a kick in the pants. These things have output comparable to the P-Rails in #2, but somehow manage to retain all the Tele character one might require - especially with the volume backed off a notch. Twang city. Fake pedal steel for days. And when called upon to push the front end, they are more than equal to the task. Wide open with the tone rolled back a hair, they roar like P-90s, except the neck pickup isn't muddy like a neck P-90 can be. My guitar also has a Tele 4-way mod, which allows both pickups in parallel and in series. With my old pickups it did a fair impression of humbuckers, but now it sounds like there's a Duncan JB somewhere under my pickguard. If I happen to adopt another Tele, you can bet your tailpiece it's getting these under the hood in short order. If there's a drawback to these pickups, it's that they make other Telecasters sound like they're recovering from a bad flu.
