Somebody mention me?
I indeed do love the Vintage'59 which GFS sells. Imho they're a great pickup, for a really great price.I think jefrs has the right idea. Assuming a standard tele bridge pickup, you want a pickup wound to a fairly low resistance. I think he hit it on the head at 8k or under. The GFS Vintage '59 neck is wound to 8k-8.2k, according to the site. Might be close enough. I doubt .2k will make much of a difference. For another lower cost alternative, you might give StewMac's Golden Age humbucker a try. The specs say the neck pickup is 8k, and there are a lot of good reviews online about them.
If you stop and think about it, I really think a lot of players who first put a humbucker in the neck probably used whatever decent PAF they had laying around. Most if not all of them were what we'd probably call "vintage wound", which means a milder, lower value output.
The only thing necessary for evil to thrive is for good men to do nothing.
