One of my favorite Teles developed a bad microphonic noise. The cause seemed to be the cover on the neck pup. Figured I'd remove the cover and problem solved...HA! Broke a coil wire going to the lead and couldn't fix it~way to short and trapped in the windings so I couldn't unwrap a turn I tried a few neck pups out of the drawer, but none really matched the bridge(Pre b-1) Dug deeper in the parts drawer and pulled out a Duncan Donahue and an old neck pup w/ceramic magnet. I'd gotten the neck pup in the 90's from StewMack it's 5.35K. What a great match that turned out to be! Middle sounds good and is humbucking. Neck sounds good w/treble pot wide open, and the Donahue in the bridge just sounds great. It's now cleaner and clearer than before, yet still full sounding~can't wait to test it out in a gig setting.
