I have a Fender 52 Reissue tele. Love it. I have had it for 3 years. I've always found the bridge pickup to be a little too ice pickey and the neck to be a little muddy. Don't get me wrong, the pickups aren't bad. However, I want to experiment a little and see if I can coax a little more out of the guitar. I am looking at Don Mare pickups, Bare Knuckle and Lollar. What am I have after... A little more articulation More twang in the bridge More definition in the neck A little more character/personality I have a Les Paul that I used for rock stuff. I use the tele for more modern country and lighter rock. I generally play clean. When I want dirt, I used pedals. But fairly selectively. Noting with too much gain. I have two amps. One is a Swart STR. Love it. I don't use pedals with it (I may plug in a timmy at times to push the amp a little for bedroom playing). My second amp--and my main amp--is a blackface-style amp by Phaez. When I go to Mare, Lollar, and Bare Knuckle sites I freeze...too many choices. I have no idea which direction to go in. I am in no rush...as I said, I don't hate the stock pickups. But it would be nice to try something new.
