Another neck dweller here. All my Tele neck pickups are fairly traditional sounding and not out of the ordinary. I have Tonerider Hot Classic, Keystone, Cavalier, Area T and Tex Mex. I like them all. The Tex Mex is more dark and middy than the others, but I like it - very woody sounding in my Road Worn. I'm on the Tele neck about 80% of the time, bridge 15% and middle 5%. I love the neck pickups in my Strats as well and spend most of my time there.
