    Hello to all,I need advice on a neck pickup for a Tele I’m building,I have a bridge pickup already.It came out of a 2016 mim Tele and it’s fairly hot measuring 10.38k.I don’t want a to use a matching mim neck pickup because I’ve tried it and was to muddy.The other factor is making sure it will work as far as polarity and pickup winding.thanks in advance
