    I want to build an Esquire "style" tele, not being a purist. I just like the idea of having one pickup and keeping that portion somewhat simple. What bridge pickup would you guys recommend if i wanted something that was 1) versatile and 2) would give me options of using the switch for different voicings.
    I play rock/blues and am starting an alt/country band. I dont play super high gain. I have some tone shaping pedals and play through a Peavey Classic 50 2x12 and vox night train, so tube amps only.
    I am kind of partial to Seymour Duncan, i have had very good luck with them and even swapped out a set of lollars for a set of alnico 2 pros, and love em.
    As for switching options, im thinking a 3 position switch with tone/q filter control, so :
    1) cocked wah
    2) regular wiring through tone control
    3) regular wiring through q filter.

    If you want something versatile and you're already a fan of the SD Alnico Pro II, the SD Jerry Donahue may be just what the doctor ordered.

    Send me a PM if you want a good deal on a used one.
