“Gone are the days of hacking up your guitar and pickguard to install a Strat pickup. This is for Tele players who have a thing for the wicked vibe of a Strat neck pickup. The rich deep lows to the clear and glassy chime is all there, but squeezed into a standard Tele size. No cutting, routing, or chisels required. This will give even a good Strat a run for its money.”

–McNelly Pickups

McNelly is garnering the highest praises from musicians and luthiers for the wonderful tone of their pickups. All McNelly pickups are hand made in Canada with an eye and an ear for detail. While McNelly uses the same high quality parts and crafting techniques that could only be found in vintage pickups, the designs feature tonal improvements and unique developments that separate the McNelly sound from the rest.

“A great pickup isn't the result of one magical ingredient or detail. It's a combination of great design that's followed through with great quality and execution. Some of the differences are noticeable before you even hear them; they are hand made and the care that goes into them is obvious. We use high quality parts, polish every rod magnet right here in the shop, the solder joints look stunning. It's a level of detail that we're willing to take time for and feel is important; we bring sexy back to pickups. Tone: Our pickups aren't all designed to strictly emulate other pickups, but to improve in areas that will make them even more functional and enjoyable for players. The complexity, dynamics, and balance are notable - we get the emails about it. Besides, we'd rather have others trying to copy us. So that's how we roll.”

This is McNelly's response to inquiries about the DC resistance of their pickups: "Judging a pickup by the DCR is a bit like judging a beer by its alcohol content. Sure, it tells you something, but it doesn't tell you much about the actual tone, the quality, or the output... And it fluctuates with the temperature! It can often be more misleading than helpful so we find it better to describe what you can realistically expect to hear. We can tell you this: Our pickups sound great and are made by people who really care about the details. Seriously."
