TLB + 60 = TBC 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid ‘80’s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the ‘90’s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jürgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

The TL60 Set is pure Rock´n´Roll. Both the neck and the bridge pickup are powerful with pronounced mids delivering that typical Telecaster overdrive through a distorted amp that we all know and love from our ´60s Telecaster heroes. However Till Hoheneder had his Stratocaster ST 60 Tillcaster bridge pickup and then wanted one for his toploader Esquire which is what you’ll find in this set! If the normal TL 60 Bridge is a Doberman, then the TL 60 Tillcaster growls like a Rottweiler!
