Not happy with Custom Shop Texas Special Bridge Pickup.

The Bridge pickup in my American Nashville B-Bender Tele sounds really thin especially the high E and B strings.Would like to have something with a fatter sound and close to a P90 sound.Any suggestions?

Lower the pickup high e side about 1/8", run the tone knob a little.

or get a Custom Shop Nocaster.

Here are a couple of examples of telecaster bridge pickups with a P90-ish sound.

Fralin Blues Special, Steel Poled 42 or 43. They kick ass! They're round, but still twangy, and have more 'meat'.
