My '52 Hot Rod Tele was listed in the emporium with no takers so I decided to keep it and look for some new pickups because I wasn't crazy about the SD mini hum. In researching pickups for a tele I ran across a thread about the Z-90 and based on that thread, and Dana Olsen's opinion which I respect, I bought a Z-90 for the neck of the tele. I've had it a day and all I can say is it is very unique sounding. I'm partial to single coils and this pickup delivers that single coil sound and has that warm tone great for a tele neck pup when the guitar volume is turned down a bit. With the guitar volume turned up the pickup roars and has more a HB sound. It's articulate and exposes all clams in a big way. I don't think that I've ever heard a pickup like this one. I like it much better than the mini hum, and it looks great too.
