Hello all. So happy to have joined this forum! I recently bought an absolutely beautiful 1998 American Deluxe Tele first edition, crimson red, with toggle switch, five way selector and three original noiseless pickups. I fell in love as soon as i saw it, but was informed soon after that the bridge pickup had to be taken out. I had wanted to keep everything stock but now will most likely replace all. Have decided on the Dimarzio Tele Area T's for neck as well as bridge (not hot), was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a possible middle strat replacement (noiseless), with consideration given to the relatively low output of the area t's. I play mostly clean into a HRDlx, with open harmonic chord structures and plenty of delay. Thanks in advance to anyone who has any ideas.
