    Yes they are. His Twin Blades are probably the best noiseless Tele pickups, too.

    No matter what you do, do NOT buy a Duncan Quarter Pounder Tele bridge. It is the worst pickup I have ever played.

    As far as tele pickups go, the Nordstrand NVT is the best pickup I have ever had. I've got it in the tele to the left, but I did modify it a little by sticking a neodymium bar magnet on the bottom of it for a few years. The neo magnet isn't on there anymore, but it definitely changed the tone in the best way. It's very responsive, can get very heavy yet cleans up with just rolling the volume knob back.

    Elysian wound me a custom pickup for the V and it's pretty awesome too but a lot more scooped sounding compared to the Nordstrand. I can't remember what he wound it to but I know I asked him to basically make it a P90. If you're not looking for a really bright tele sound, the Elysian is probably the way to go.

    *edit*

    I used the Nordstrand NVT here, just a bridge pickup and volume knob:


    And the Elysian here, also no neck pickup or tone knob:

    I have a nocaster set from vineham pickups (east coast Canada) and they sound great. Then factor in the fact they're around $100USD for the pair and it gets even better. He does a broadcaster set too.
