Several week ago, I was contacted by Michael Leonard, a soldier from Florida currently serving in Afghanistan about a guitar project he was working on. He wanted some pickups for his tele project he was doing to build a few tele’s for some soldiers. I was glad to be able to give a small part back to those who so bravely serve our country. The Porter Standard Tele Set was just recently put in a guitar and Michael sent in this review:
I briefly described the bridge pickup earlier, so i apologize if i am repeating myself, but….. Clean clear and articulate are a few words that come to mind… snappy and growling also come to mind, but hey that is all subjective…. how about this: it sounds like a tele! a really great tele, an amazing tele…. very responsive to technique, and sounded down right amazing with a little tube distortion… it does twang spot on, but i LOVE a bluesy tele sound and the neck pickup kills! it is warm and punchy and definitely has ZERO of the dull sound i fear in tele neck p/u’s…. AND THIS SET IS QUIET! i was amazed at how quiet the pickup amp combo was! all three pickup positions are entirely usable sounds and i can’t say that about all the tele’s i have played (or even owned)
Hands down, these pickups can compete with any on the market!!!!!
