Danny Gatton T-Style Pickups
T-Neck, T-Bridge, and Pickup Sets
The legendary Joe Barden pickup, originally designed for and used by Danny
Gatton, exhibits Classic Tele twang, but with full output, incredible fidelity, and
absolutely no hum or noise. The T-Neck solves the age-old Tele problem
because its output and tone are equal to the bridge pickup. The T-bridge pickup
features our unique “staggered-blade” design for perfect response on the outer
strings. This is the best pickup imaginable for the instrument that defines the
“electric guitar”. No modification to the guitar is required.

Modern T-Style Bridge Pickup

The Modern T-Style bridge pickup is similar in appearance to its Gatton T-Style
counterpart. It was originally designed for a leading artist who wanted a fatter tone
in the bridge position of his Tele, but did not want to sacrifice the great tone offered
by the Gatton T-Styles. The Modern T-Style bridge pickup fits that need with its
heavier coil winding and more aggressive tone and performance.

The Modern T-Style bridge pickup is particularly suited for today's modern country
and rock styles, while the original Gatton T-Styles remain the pickups of choice for
Tele overall Tele tone, twang, and performance.

The Modern T-Style is a bridge pickup variant only. The Gatton T-Style neck
pickup remains unchanged and performs flawlessly with the new Modern T-Style
winding in the bridge position.

Like the Gatton T-Styles they are available in black or white as well as packaged in
a Modern T-Style Set.

 S-Deluxe Pickups for Stratocasters™

 The S-Deluxe pickups are for use in Strat™ and Strat-styled guitars. They fit into
 standard Stratocaster™ body routs without modification to the guitar. Like all
 other Joe Barden double-blade designs, the pickups give you vintage tone but
 with greater articulation, punch, clarity and dead quiet operation. The
 characteristic “in-between” sounds of the Strat are preserved.

 The S-Deluxe pickups are available separately or in pre-packaged sets and in
 Black or White.

Humbucker (HB)
and Humbucker Two/Tone TM
 The HB and HB Two/Tone TM series are high performance humbucker pickups
 designed to fit into standard Gibson full humbucker body routs without
 modification to the guitar.

 Although similar in appearance, the HB pickup is a single mode humbucker
 while the HB Two/Tone TM offers two modes (full humbucker and single coil) . The
 HB Two/Tone is wired with a 6 conductor cable that allows players to engage the
 pickup’s unique coil tap feature that switches the HB Two/Tone TM to its single-
 coil sounding mode. Unlike the often used coil-split method traditional used to
 coax faux single coil tones from a standard humbucker pickup, the HB Two/Tone TM
 used a coil-tapped method that is fully hum cancelling in either mode, making
 it the perfect choice for players who want the flexibility of a full humbucker and
 a single coil sound in the same pickup.

 In application, the HB Two/Tone TM is a boon for Strat players with HSS or
 HSH configured guitars. In its alternate (coil tapped) mode, the HB Two/Tone TM
 drops in volume to preserve the balance with the other S-Deluxes in the neck and
 middle positions as well allowing the player to retain the characteristic in-
 between sounds of Strat-styled guitars.

J-Style Bass Guitar Pickups

J-Style Bass pickups offer the same great JBE tone, power, and response for the
bass guitar as our groundbreaking double-blade guitar pickups have done for 6
string guitars for the last 25 years.

Our J-Style pickups were designed to maintain authentic J-Bass™ tone and
character but with extended frequency response and articulation that characterizes
all JBE pickups. And, like all models in our pickup line, the J-Style pickups
deliver quiet performance for high gain live performance or recording.

Now, bass players can tailor their sound more precisely than was possible with
stock pickups by selecting one or both pickups without fear of noise or hum often
induced by traditional single coil bass pickups.

Neck and bridge position pickups differ in size to fit into the cavities of traditional
J-Bass and similarly styled guitars without modification to the instrument.

J-Style bass pickups are available for both 4 and 5 string models.

        out of the mix.

        pickup hardware for drop-in installation with no modification to the instrument.

JBE Soapbar Pickups

JBE Soapbar pickups offer authentic soapbar tone with the presence, musicality,
and noise free performance that are characteristic of all JBE pickups.

Our Soapbar pickups were not designed as simply another vintage recreation.
Instead, they meet the critical demands and expectations of today’s players for a
high fidelity pickups that is also able to retain all the characteristic vibe of the
beloved soapbar pickup…. but with “ more”.

The bridge pickup has the “attitude” players expect from a soapbar pickup, taking
guitar solos to great heights. The neck pickup is wonderfully warm, clear, and
present…never dull or lifeless. With both pickups switched “on’ you get a
hollow/woody sound that seems to belie the tonal character of each pickup
separately. Equally impressive is that the noise and hum of traditional Soapbars
are totally eliminated in the JBE design, making them perfect for recording and
liver performance.

JBE Soapbars fit the body routes of any guitar that conforms to the Gibson
soapbar/P90 specification.
