This is the second blog in a series of discussions about best selling Lollar pickups. Today we’ll cover our best selling Lollar tele pickups.
Lollar Tele Pickups:
A discussion of Lollar tele style pickups is a bit more accurate if we talk about favorite combinations of necks and bridges. The reason for this is because our customers often like to “mix and match” our different tele style pickups.
Our best selling stock Lollar tele bridge is the Lollar Special T Series® bridge. We sell more of these bridges than any of our others. There are 2 favorite combinations that include this choice for the bridge position.
The first combination is the Lollar Special T Series bridge plus Lollar Special T Series neck. In other words, simply a Lollar Special T Series set. A second popular combination is the Lollar Special T Series bridge plus the Lollar Vintage T Series® neck.
It is generally a “tie” when it comes to which of these stock combinations is more popular. Some months we sell more straight Lollar Special T Series sets, and some months we sell more combination sets consisting of the Lollar Special T bridge plus the Lollar Vintage T neck.
In our previous blog about best selling Lollar strat style pickups, we mentioned the popularity of the Lollar “Dirty Blonde” strat set which is a combination set consisting of the Lollar Special S bridge and Lollar Blonde neck and middle. It is interesting to point out that there is a similar pattern with teles. The combination tele style set made up of the Lollar Special T bridge plus Lollar Vintage T neck is also popular for one of the same reasons that make the Dirty Blonde set so popular: That is, Nash Guitars.
If you wanted to order what you hear in a Nash tele style guitar equipped with Lollars, you would want to order the Lollar Special T Series bridge and the Lollar Vintage T Series neck. For more detail on this Nash style combination for tele, take a look at the previous posting about Lollar Pickups and Nash Guitars.
One last question that is worth addressing: What is the most popular choice to go along with the Lollar Charlie Christian neck for telecaster? Answer (which you may have already guessed): The Lollar Special T Series bridge.
And again a reminder, these are current purchasing trends. Ultimately there is no “wrong” answer. It still all boils down to your personal preference and what tone you are seeking for the particular project or instrument. As you know, we sell a variety of Lollar tele style pickups. Each of them has its own unique characteristics and advantages.
