We took a lot of time developing this set and went through a lot of prototypes to get our version of a Fat 59 Tele set. We worked with several artist to design it string by string looking for a warm 59 tone.
We use a mix of magnets and wind the Neck to 7.2k with 43 GA  and bridge to 7.6k which creates a nice balance between the two.
This set has bright clear highs that sizzle and pop without ice pick and warm but tight lows. Made to be able to twang in Country or go to Rock or Blues Rock as well many styles.  These pickups are flexible, warm single-coil Telecaster sounds.  They are clear and still cut, but have a slightly rounder and darker tone.  Punchy, thick sounds, but with clarity and chime.  This is a very versatile set, but also very well suited for those with jazz, pop, or rhythm and blues tendencies.

5 of 5 Fat 59's are awesome! May 27, 2016
Reviewer: Chris Wenkle from Auburn, WA United States  
I recently purchased a 2001 MIM Fender Telecaster on the cheap.  It's in great shape, but the stock Fender pickups are anemic.  I ordered and installed a set of Fat 59's --replaced the pots, cap, switch, and jack--got the guitar restrung and plugged it in.  The difference in output and tone was literally shocking---as in shockingly GREAT!  WOW!  These Fat Cats are truly the difference between night and day.  More accurately it’s like going from a single-wide mobile home to a 3,000 square foot custom home.  The difference is just huge!  Round—clear—with great warmth and definition—and tremendous Tele “spank”—these Fat 59's are just AWESOME!  David Allen never fails to deliver THE tone!!

5 of 5 The Best Versatile Telecaster Pickups!! November 18, 2013
Reviewer: Jovy from Vienna, VA United States  
Currently, I have these pickups on a ButterScotch FSR Fender Tele. I modified the Tuners and a Joe Barden Bridge. I would like to first of all say that customer service is top notch! I almost regrettably return the pick ups. But, for some reason I didn't I said to myself I took a leap of faith for these pick ups boy I was amaze how versatile these PUP's are. It is as advertised they are great pickups. It is probably the most versatile out of all his other Tele Pups. It's well rounded and clear just the way I like them. Again Great Pickups I'm sure I will shop at your shop again.
