Porter 9T

Big sound and killer looks

9T Tele Pickup

The Porter 9T neck gives you a nice clear and full tone without getting too muddy or too twangy. It will still provide the P90 “push” but remains thick in the mix.

The Porter 9T bridge pickup gives you that huge P90 tone without any extra modifications to your guitar. The 9T bridge is very aggressive, driving your amp harder while still giving you the flexibility of adjusting each pole under each string. The 9T bridge responds well to volume changes and clean up as you roll the knob down. We like to run these pickups at different heights depending on the results and aggressiveness you want.

The Porter 9T Set works particularly well to tame otherwise bright or harsh guitars. Turn it up!

NOTE: If you are wanting to build a combination such as a Nashville Tele® or combine these with another pickup, use each cart’s individual pickup purchase option to build your set by position/pickup type.

The 9T’s are like any standard T wiring. White is hot, black is ground. Follow any diagram for installation. If you have a 4-way wiring setup, the cover ground is usually yellow. Many diagrams do not show this color, so pay attention when installing since the black ground wire will be to the switch instead of ground on the 4-way application.

9T Install tip: The 9t bridge plate does not come with any type of metal baseplate. Many tele bridges use the mounting screws of the tele bridge to come in contact with the bridge metal to create the bridge ground. You MAY need to add a separate bridge ground wire to the actual metal of the bridge itself if you experience any extra noise. Shielding the guitar cavities is recommended!
