I have a ‘52 RI Tele. The stock pups were ‘good’….but not great. I put a set of Fishman’s Greg Koch Fluence pickups in and what was a very good guitar turned into a great one.
I had a Tele with a set of these a couple years ago. I agree, great sounding pickups. I sold the guitar because I wasn't a fan of the actual guitar, not the pickups. Greg is such an amazing player.
