    I've been scouting for another strat to get those nice middle\bridge strat sounds but have not really found anything that excites me. I'm afraid I'll end up with another strat and realize once again that the body and tone\vol placements just don't feel comfortable to me.
    So I'm going to stick with my 2 Teles a Custom shop 52 tele and a Brad Paisley silver tele. I'm going to take the BP and have a middle pickup installed with a 5 way switch.
    I would like recommendations on what after market pickup would be good for that Mark Knopfler sound/

    I'd contact Mojotone and tell them what you're looking for. Going that route, you'll also get the correct polarity.
