    Has anyone put one of the Double Tap humbucker pickups in the neck position of their Tele and if so what bridge pickup are you using?
    In the American Performer they use a Yosemite bridge pickup which I believe has Alnico 4 magnets but it looks like they're not sold separately, only as a set.
    Just wondering what people are using to match it.

    I would think anything around 8k using 42 gauge wire would get you close enough that balancing could be achieved via pickup height.

    Thanks for that. I'm putting the Double Tap in a Player series Tele so will see how the stock bridge pickup pairs up first doing as you suggest.
