stick a p90 in the neck
thank me later
Fralin unbucker. Great in Humbucker and Split mode. Two volume, no treble control. Paired with a Tonerider classics +, sounds great
I put a Harmonic Design humbucker at the bridge on my partscaster. Haven't second guessed myself.
You're gonna like it!
Vintage Gibson T-Top out of a 70's Les Paul.
DeArmond Gold Tone in a Tele Custom from the 90s (split coiled neck position is fantastic for Blues...)
Fender Stock in a Hot Rodded Fat Telecaster from around 2000
Rio Grande humbucker that fits iin an ASAT Special is also quite nice
Can also recommend a Dusenberg Domino p-90; can be found used for not much money and fits in a humbucking slot
A Creamery '57. I can't remember which magnet I chose, I had it built four wire so it'll split and paired it with a tapped single coil from same builder in the bridge. One of the nicest humbuckers I've ever played.
Lollar El Rayo humbucker. Is a little brighter and more articulate than usual and so plays well with the tele bridge pickup. Middle position sounds great!
I got two teles with standard set up. I always thought a neck Humbucker would be nice but never tried it actually.
Is there any stacked humbucker made to fit on a regular Tele neck SC position?
I went the "Keith" way and put a Gibson PAF in it. 52 reissue Tele from 1992 (that's when I bought it With certificate)
Creamery '71 neck and Nocaster in bridge. Flamed maple over ribbon Khaya.
Stock Fender American Performer Telecaster with a Fender Double Tap humbucker in the neck and a Fender Yosemite Tele single coil in the bridge. The only modification from stock is a 4 way switch to replace the stock 3 way. This adds a neck and bridge in series at the 4th position.
I know Bare Knuckle doesn’t get a ton of love here, but I love their pickups. I just put a set of Stormies is an ES-339 and it’s like heaven. I’m about to build a telecaster with a Flat ‘50 in the bridge (with staggered poles) and I think a Riff Raff or PG Blues in the neck. Anyway, I always have to give a +1 to BKP.
Can't wait to receive it, have a pair on the way but only installing the neck pickup for some smooth jazz.
I have a Lollar Humbucker in my Nash Tele. It sounds good, but I have to use the tone pot when I go to the bridge PU. Sometimes I would like to have something more balanced with the bridge.
Early 70’s Gibson mini-humbucker with a Duncan vintage stack in the bridge. 500K pots Jensen paper in oil cap.
I only have one guitar with humbuckers, and that one taught me that I'm really a single coil guy. A full humbucker in a tele isn't for me. I have thought about a mini, even more about a Firebird. If I were to go that way, I would probably go the way @DHart did, with a Cavalier "Phoenix" Firebird.
But when @brookdalebill chimed in here early on about the TV Jones Supertron, it reminded me that I really want to try TV Jones Classics. I've thought about replacing the PAF style humbuckers I have now with the TVJ Classics. I might consider that in a neck position, though I just don't much like the look of a tele with a humbucker in the neck and tele single coil bridge.
Fralin P-92 with a noiseless/toneless in the bridge position. Fralin P-92s are great pickups, btw. Smooth balls is the way I would put it.
Sweet guitar! Where is the body from? More hollow than a Thinline (which really doesn't get much "air" into the tone at all), which appeals to me.
Using Seymour Duncan P-Rail with 3 position toggle to select P90/Humbucker/blade pickup configuration. Very versatile and sounds great on this guitar.
Also Duncan Hot Stack by the bridge.
