Pre- B1 was my first Tele pickup change! (Back when it was the Pre-BS)But let's not rule out a P90ish bridge PU for rowdy use I've learned.
I got a Pre-B1 Dimarzio years ago, and never took it out. And a non base plated tele bridge PU was never anything I thought I'd possibly like. I expected a failed experiment.
Generally I've always stuck 8.5 9k max in a vintage bridge Tele. That Pre-B1 changed things in my perception.
I do suggest opening up the tone circuit with them hot PUs, or bypass option via push pull, yada.
Side note: with by passed tone circuit the Pre-B1 at 1/2 throttle [guitar pot] still in a well working range, not muted etc.
I would probably still be playing it, but my brother borrowed my Tele and when I got it back there was a new pickup that I hated.
