Are there any p90 or humbucker pickups that would fit in a telecaster without mods? or any in a single coil size thanks.
#2
I'm sure you can find a tele with any pickup configuration you can think of. Do you already own one? What specific tele is it? Anyway, check out the Seymour Duncan hot rails and cool rails.
RG351DX - Bridge Dragonfire Screamer, Mid+Neck Fender Hot Noiseless
Peavey Valveking 112 - Eminence GB128
AMT E1 > Joyo AC Tone > Dan'o EQ > Shimverb > Digidelay

which tele do you have? i think a lot of the fenders are already routed for a neck humbucker. do you mean both pickups to be changed to p90s or humbuckers?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The closest thing I can think of to a single-coil sized P90 is a Charlie Christian. I have one in the bridge of a Jon Kammerer Dorado, courtesy of Vintage Vibe pickups. (VV also has an eBay store, FWIW.)

oh yeah i mean if you're ok with tele-sized pickups which are more aimed at a p90 or humbucker tone then you have a lot of options. I don't really have any experience with them, though.

I'm waiting on one of these to be delivered so I can't tell you what they are like just yet but I was chasing the same thing as you; well, for the bridge (I don't even have a neck pup on my tele).

In all seriousness, what positions do you want them in, both? Obviously you can't place a regular p90 in the bridge, it's too big.

If your guitar is routed for it, you can find a P90-sized bridge plate for Teles here:

That sort of thing wasn't an option for me (and I can use a router) because I have a Hipshot Trilogy in my tele. The SD Quarter Pounder I put in there is pretty good, certainly has a P90 vibe to it - but I want more than just a "vibe." Hopefully the Dirty Harry will get me there. I certainly wasn't gonna toss away a $300 bridge to get there.

I hope the Rio Grande works for you...but what is more punk than tossing out a $300 bridge for one that costs 1/10th that to achieve your desired tone?

Don't do it.

Just sell the guitar and get a p90 or humbucker guitar, and let someone else enjoy the magic of the stock tele single coil that you obviously don't appreciate.

^ Why is that even a consideration? It's his guitar and he can do whatever he likes with it. Caveat of course being that anything irreversible will probably lower its resale value, but as long as he realises that, it's his call.

That's true, but if you want the sound of the real thing, it's better to get the real thing. I just think he'd be more satisfied this way than by getting a pickup that does a half-ass interpretation of another pickup.
#17
That's a fair point. I thought you were saying it was "wrong" to swap.

I suppose if getting another guitar isn't an option, or if he likes everything about the guitar apart from how it sounds, swapping the pickup might still make sense. A different guitar which comes stock with p90s etc. will likely have a different neck profile, scale length etc.

Or he could be full of shit.

Just put the Rio Grande Dirty Harry into my tele. I'm pretty impressed. I think the Quarter Pounder I had in there may be a bit hotter but the Dirty Harry does sound more like a P90. Not a hot P90, a normal P90. Really nice note definition.
You could do a lot worse. I'll report back after I've run it through its paces at my next gig (Saturday I think).
