Rio Grande Dirty Harry Tele Set Black


Add to Cart
Walk softly......or not: With the Rio Grande Dirty Harry Tele® pickup set, Rio Grande crams the power and tone of their P-90 Jazz Bar and Blues Bar onto a Tele sized bobbins. With true P-90 style construction the Dirty Harry Tele set will make your day.

The Rio Grande Dirty Harry pickup set for Tele® uses true P-90 type construction with a ceramic bar magnet and fillister head screws for authentic P-90 sound that drops into your Tele with no modifications.

The Tele neck pickup is made to emulate their Jazz Bar P-90 pickup, the Dirty Harry Tele neck pickup has a strong midrange, plenty of attack, and lacks the mushy compressed tone that afflicts many traditional Tele neck pickups. But being from Rio, they know how to balance power and clarity, and the Dirty Harry does not have the stuffy, congested feel of an over-wound P-90. 8K ohms resistance, ceramic magnet.

The Dirty Harry pickup bridge for Tele® emulates their Blues Bar P-90 pickup. Tested in our Highway One Tele, clean tones give up some of that authentic Tele twang, but still has good note separation and a clean, bright high end. It's sonically well balanced and has the tone of a well made Soapbar. Overdriven you'll uncork that distinctive P-90 thickness that fills out the midrange and produces rich crunch with good harmonic detail, and without the nasal snarl of an overcooked pickup. The Dirty Harry also cleans up quite nicely when rolled back. 12K ohms resistance, ceramic magnet, and includes hardware and instructions. Made in Texas, where they know about hot stuff!
