Here's part of the review in Guitar Digest. It was set up using a 5-way switch to get all that the combination had to offer.

The bridge pickup in the tapped mode has plenty of Tele® twang so you can do all of that stuff Tele® bridge pickups are famous for. It is full sounding with nice highs and focused lows. The mid peak toward high mids. It has a little more guts and volume than traditional Tele® bridge pickups. It also blends nicely in the dual position with the neck pickup. It warms up the twang to a nice full sounding blend that worked great for more rock and blues leads.
Where I fell in love with the bridge pickup was when I went to the full on sound. That position takes you into rock and roll territory, giving a hint of P-90 sound but with less bass and a brighter top end. It is sitting in the bridge of a Tele® right? The mid peak gets moved lower in the spectrum. It can overdrive an amp more than any traditional Tele® pickup. Cranked all the way it sits nicely at the edge of distortion. You're not into humbucking overdrive but you are over the edge. You still get that Tele® flavor too. In combination with the neck pickup you get more of what you had before with a fuller richer beefier sound. I tended to stay on the bridge side of center. If you want Tele® on steroids this is the side for you, but a more countrified player might favor the neck side of center. - Guitar Digest

Here's some more of that Guitar Digest review.
I started with the neck position and was treated to a full sounding powerful neck pickup. Not the wimpy sound you get from many Tele neck pickups. The word piano like, woody and acoustic and balanced sounding come to mind. All the strings were clean and articulate. The bass was full and not mushy. The highs were bright and round. In fact the pickup was very balanced across the whole tonal spectrum. It worked great for rhythm work and when full up with a little volume from the amp gave up a nice blues like tone. - Guitar Digest

Hi Bill I had my tech put your HushPups in my studio workhorse telecaster and it was absolutely fantastic. It is exactly the sound I was looking for. Spot on :) It wasn't ice picky and the neck pickup could be fat and warm for R&B while the bridge is just perfect for country.... I've been referring you to others and I will also mention your brand to some new boutique guitar manufacturers that I know.... Maurice
