Well, now that I'm ready to slap my latest tele project together, I'm wondering if I should go with a neck humbucker (as originally planned) or a standard tele neck pickup. Luckily, I decided to have the neck position routed for a humbucker when I ordered the body from Warmoth. I figured if it's routed for a humbucker, I can use either type of pickup, all I need to do is get the right pickguard. I like the idea of a neck humbucker (I've been using an Air Norton in my current guitar, paired w/ a Dimarzio Chopper T in the bridge), but lately it's just sounded too darned "big" sounding on the neck position. On my latest trip to the guitar store, I played some standard tele's and really liked the neck tone, which I usually don't. If I go the regular tele neck pickup route, I'll either get a Dimarzio Virtual T neck pickup ($60), a Dimarzio Twang King neck pup ($50), or possibly a Fender Classic Series MIM neck pickup ($23). Whichever tele pickup I choose, it won't be connected to the tone pot..I figure this will give me a smidge more brightness to the neck position, which I'd definitely like. If I go with a humbucker, it will be either a Dimarzio PAF ($60), Dimarzio Humbucker from Hell ($60), or a Dimarzio Air Classic ($60). Whichever one I choose, it will be black/creme. So should I go for regular tele neck tones, or just change up my choice of neck humbucker?
