I love the Tele but this is my favorite sound; the clean Strat neck position. Is there a pickup that can fit in a Tele without routing that can do that?
I have one...the previous generation type (2002). The Tex-Mex pickups in the neck and bridge were cheapo garbage. The middle is decent. I have a Lollar Special T in the bridge, a Twang King in the neck, and the stock middle pickup. You can cover a lot of ground with that combo.Fender Nashville tele's have a strat pup in the middle. Probably be lot's of Youtube clips on it.
Just put a SD vintage in the neck of a MIM standard tele. Although it cleaned up the tone the out put is lower than the stock Fender bridge pup. Now you got to ride the volume when changing positions . Not a great mod.I have a MIM tele with stock SD pups in it: I am sure the neck pup was strat spec'd....
I also have this exact pickup in my tele. It is wicked!I had one of these in my last Tele and loved it KP - Alnico Fatbody Oversized Polepiece Tele Neck Pickup - Kwikplug™ Ready . They have a few neat neck pickup options.
