Porter Custom Tele®
Thicker, less twang and versatile tones
The Porter Custom Tele® set features AlNiCo 5 magnets on both the neck and bridge. The bridge features a custom staggered pole design, with raised D and G poles and a copper baseplate. The Customs have a great punchy attack and excellent dynamics when playing chords, rock or blues. These pickups really respond well to volume knob changes, or to amps and pedals when you want the guitar to push them over the top. The bridge pickup is designed to push the amp and cut through the mix just right while still sounding full. The neck pickup still retains the warm and full sound that Porter’s are known for, with just a little more aggressiveness than our Standard and Vintage models.
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.
