A higher wind on Alnico III magnets makes our Hot Classics a must for the rock and blues player who wants more edge from their Telecasters. Hot Classics have a stronger midrange, thicker bass response and a raunchy upper register.

The Alnico III magnets offer great note separation, even for chord work using boost and overdrive pedals. The neck pickup features a Nickel-silver cover for incredible tonal transparency (no more muddy sounds) whilst the bridge pickup mimics some of the best hot Broadcaster pickups of yesteryear.

These have been Tonerider's best-selling pickup sets over the last few years, and now power thousands of Telecasters around the world. A grounded full size copper plated baseplate and black string wrap adds to the tone and completes the look and feel.

Tonerider Hot Classics

It was an excellent upgrade to my Squier 60s classic vibe

I used these pups in a previous T style build, they sounded fantastic, so I’m putting them in the T I’m making for myself.

Tonerider pickups and telecaster wiring kit

Northwest Guitars were excellent in providing advice and wiring diagram for the pickup upgrade project I’m working on. Wouldn’t hesitate to use them again for more parts. Recommended.

Great Upgrade

I bought these to replace the pups in my Squier CV60s Telecaster because they lacked the bite I wanted and the neck pup was microphonic.

Fitting was straight forward, they come with mounting screws so there was no messing around trying to get the original screws to fit. These are noticeably hotter than the original pickups and there is definitely the bite I was after, along with a clarity that wasn't quite there before. There are no microphonic issues with these pups, either.
