| + Dynamic high-end tone|
+ Bright bridge pickup
+ Smooth and punchy neck pickup

| + Solderless install|

+ Neck and bridge pickups
- Possibly frustrating installation
|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|For an inexpensive set of pickups, they sound fantastic. They offer a beautiful sound that is similar to a Stratocaster, and they give you exceptional low end and a dynamic high frequency which country players will love.||The EMT-T pickups may be the best humbucker style pickups that you can get for a Tele. They will keep the sound to a minimum and will give you a smooth tone to work with. They are also pretty easy to install, so you should be able to get up and running pretty quickly.|
