Art Thompson: AnalogMan's Jim Weider Big-T Tele Pickup


Based on Jim Weider’s original design, the Big-T ($125 street) is designed to enhance the sound of your Tele’s neck-pickup setting. Hand-wound by Lindy Fralin, the Big-T is highly specialized pickup that delivers a rich, beefy tone with clear, well-detailed highs, and enough output to balance well with hot bridge pickups. I installed one in a G&L ASAT Classic, and the Big-T proved more useful for rhythm and lead playing than other neck pickups I’ve tried in this guitar.
