Mention the subject of American acoustic guitars and one of the first names that will undoubtedly pop into your head will be C. The term “electrics” is not meant to include the company’s many fine acoustic-electric guitars, many sporting top-notch electronics (which ultimately remain acoustic beasts), but rather electric guitars meant for country chicken pickin’ or raunchy rock and roll. Not that there aren’t many other estimable names, but Martin, by virtue of its longevity since 1833 and incredible quality remains the standard by which almost all steel-stringed acoustics are judged. Bring up the topic of electrics, and Martin is hardly the first name of recall.Fifties flattop electrics Martin actually got into the electric guitar business in the late ’50s when it started slapping De Armond pickups onto some of its acoustic guitars yielding the D-18E, D-28E and OO-18E.These pickups were the De Armond humbuckers with chrome sides and a black center in a trapezoidal hole, large pole pieces along one side and smaller poles along the other.WD offers many more Tele pickguards than shown here.
WD also manufactures Tele guards designed to accommodate Strat, TV Jones and other pickups. We have a HUGE library of templates dating back over thirty years, so if you dont see your model that doesnt mean we dont make it, it just means youll have to call 800-449-9348 ext.Adam Dutkiewicz & Joel Stroetzel from Killswitch Engage create music that spans from the cleanest of cleans, to aggressive melodic metal.The Killswitch Engage Signature Set packs tremendous versatility into one set of pickups.Yes, the Esquire sports only a single bridge pickup, while the Telecaster has two pickups, but the Esquire is not a Telecaster with a missing neck pickup, but rather a distinct model with its own sound.This is because of its unique wiring and also because the lack of a neck pickup causes less magnetic pull on the strings.We offer a full range of Stratocaster Replacement pickups from vintage, to modern over wound guitar tones, to Jazz & Blues.
