I'm looking at Seymour Duncan Hot Rail pickup for my telecaster, but the "Artec Alnico" look alike are way cheaper. Are they any good or should I go with the duncan

Got a link for the artec? I've never heard of it.

Having played a tele with a hot rail in the bridge I must say I thought it was pretty nice. It had a great crunch through the mesa express I played and it didn't sound too bad with the bridge and neck together (though the bridge and neck didn't sound good as a tele with an sc in the bridge.)
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Seems too good to be true, I wouldn't trust it. Then again 20 bucks is no biggie to blow, maybe give it a shot.

Eh, tough call then. It might sound great, might sound like crap, you won't know until you get it.

artec have good and cheap effect pedals but i wouldn't trust their pickups that much. try going for GFS or Kent Armstrong.

get quality. Don't buy something just because it is cheaper. More than likely it'll just be a waste of the money anyways.

i actually have a HR bridge in my tele.

i dont even suggest it. it's a little too high end.

if i were you, i'd check out what dimarzio stacks have to offer for teles.

a pic of it...
