so you just toggle between them?
Yup, and in the middle position the 2 volumes act like blenders. More/less neck or more/less bridge.
There is actually a bit more electronic trickery going on that I haven't told you abt to get the humbucker sounding great.
the best sound ever created with a guitar I might add! cannot be beaten!
the middle position on a tele is absolute magic and unique to only the telecaster, a humbucker is just not elegant enough looking or sounding for me, I find it looks quite cumbersome.
well, that sure sounds interesting!
Yeah, my other guitar is an EMG 81/89R equipped shredder so I loves me some overwound covered Tele single coil neck pickup. If I could get a true WR HB (lol seriously cost prohibitive and Tab probably bought them all up) I would get a deluxe but otherwise I wouldn't stray any further than a P90 in the neck position. Those repro WR's are crap at reproducing the original. They have a cool unique sound, just not emulating the original WR very well. I think you are better off with an overwound Filtertron for getting close to a WR these days. I am tempted to put a P-Rails in my neck position but only to have the two different SC options..
The original Tele neck PU and wiring were designed so the player could sound like a bass if needed to ... This may have been a great idea in 1952 ...
The wiring was changed to a more modern configuration, but the PU remained ...
Well, I like humbuckers in the neck for playing chords. Not for the bridge tho. I want single coil note clarity. High clear & cutting for solos. & teles have a big-ass single coil in that position
Never liked a neck humbucker till I tried a firebird about a year ago. This past weekend I put a DiMarzio Cruiser in the neck of my Mahogany Tele, it also works well. As long as the middle position is good and the E and A strings have some snap in the neck position a humbucker can be a nice mod for a Tele.
