TCI is a combination of pickups and electronics. It's a culmination of everything Paul has learned in 35+ years of guitar building. We've taken all of the variable and made the tolerances extremely tight. Think about the genuine PAF pickups. Some of them sound like the voice of God, while some of them just sound OK. Why is that? Because too many things were left to chance. With TCI we leave nothing to chance and control every aspect of the design and construction. Each TCI pickup set is tuned to the specific guitar. Think of it as a mixing counsel, we've mixed the sound to be exactly what we want, every time.
All Core guitars are getting TCI treatment now. S2 guitars will follow in the near future.
Having "everything" under control isn't necessarily a good thing. A thoroughbred race horse is an impressive beast most people would marvel at... until they see a wild mustang
