    Absolutely loving this sound:

    I've got a bone stock 2014 MIM Tele. Yamaha THR10C is my only amp. Thinking of throwing a SD59 in the neck just like the video.

    Now for the bridge: which noiseless pairs well with the SD59 and nails this sound? Want to retain the Tele sound but fatten it up.

    These sound like a great match. Hotter to keep up with the '59 with a recognizable but fatter Tele tone. Might be the answer!

    Big +1 on the Area Hot T!

    Make sure to swap the hot/ground on one of them, or they will be out of phase with each other btw

    I use a Air Classic in the neck, and they complement each other well. I think the AC should be similar to the '59, both PAF-style Alnico 5 buckers..

    Excellent, thanks. For the '59, if I have no intention of splitting it, do I need to be concerned about getting the 4-conductor version?

    And what about pots, should I swap them or leave them stock?
