What are you using?
Bare Knuckle "Stormy Monday", 7.1k with an AlNiCo 2 magnet. I use a blender pot in parallel with bridge pickup and a S-1 switch for coil split (which also sets it out of phase with the bridge pickup, a sweet sound). Bridge pickup is a Bare Knuckle "Flat '52" 7.1k, AlNiCo 5.
I have a 1970's vintage Super 70's Alnico 7.35 Ohm on the way, can't wait to install it for a fat neck humbucker sound.
DiMarzio DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary (7.31 Kohm, Alnico 5) with series/split/parallel switch.
TV Jones Supertron!
Is that what’s in your signature ax?
You’re slippin Bill, giving away your tone secrets
I’ve been slippin’ for awhile!
Supertrons are my favorite neck pickups.
My Chet, avatar guitar, and Cabronita all have em’ in the neck position.
I’m going to put a Supertron in the bridge position of my MJT.
I’ve never tried one in that position.
I’ll probably like it.
Are the Supertrons higher output than the standard Filtertrons?
Cavalier "Phoenix" Firebird - sings so sweetly, and perfectly noiseless!
Another option, Duncan Antiquity II Mini Humbucker - retains some brightness and clarity, whilst giving a humbucker tone.
For a full-size PAF-style, I like the Dimarzio PAF Master the best - bright clarity and richness!
If you're open to something other than full size humbuckers...… I use a ~69 Gibson Mini Humbucker (patent number sticker on bottom). It pairs especially well with a Bareknuckle Blackguard Flat 50 in the bridge. Unbelievable combination of clarity and power and all the other superlatives.
Not sure what the point is, to get as many unique responses as there are members?
Actually more, because I have 7 Teles, all with different pickups...
Mostly stock in my AVs, except for the AV58, which has Stuart Blackguards. My latest Nashville build has an OC Duff Buckaroo set (with Fillmore middle). Love those. And another build has a Seth Lover humbucker, and I use that guitar to confirm my suspicion that I don't like humbuckers in Teles.
I think they are slightly “hotter”.
The main difference is the blades instead of Filister head pole pieces.
Vineham Telepaf: 6.8k; alnico 2, unpotted, nickel cover.
Usually Seymour Duncans for me.
StewMac Maple capped Alder thinline, topped with brass. No ID with a patent pending # on back of neck humbucker.
Warmoth quilted Maple capped Alder, Seymour Duncan vintage mini humbucker.
GFS Paulownia body, Seymour Duncan 59 humbucker.
Most of my builds I include a P90 either in the neck or middle position.
P90 neck is so much nicer than HB neck - I recommend it
I've never had a neck humbucker in a telecaster, but something tells me a mini-humbucker would sound better than a PAF. Not sure why. I have used a P90 in the neck and liked it a lot.
Lollar Low-Wind Imperial with a Lollar Special T in the bridge (alder body, rosewood fretboard) or Haeussel ‘59 with their TE Broad in the bridge (mahogany Thinline body, maple top, rosewood fretboard...the “dreaded” mahogany body/maple neck combo sounds great to my ears).
Some kind of Tonerider. Sounds good to me. Not muddy at all.
Not entirely sure I can remember what it is, Vanson?, Vantec?, Banggood/Tomtop special?, who knows.
It sounds great.
I've got it paired with one of these now :
The distortion in the image is due to CrappoCam. Again, Vanson?, Vantec?, can't remember. 500K pots and away you go. It sounds like a mellow Tele with a hoarse voice. Cleans right up with a small roll-off of the guitar volume, but can rock and roll like a granite boulder down a dry slope.
