Steel Twin Demo


A telecaster came in for some much needed renovation this past week, included in the upgrade package were some Steel Twin pickups. These are dual coil pickups meaning they can be tapped via a push/pull, allowing switching between vintage twang and more driven tones, pretty damn versatile.

This guitar belongs to Joe Smithson, a Liverpool based session musician and member of Collectors Club. He kindly sat in and recorded a quick demo:
