Hey all, I've got a cool little partscaster I've had for years now and it has had every iteration of hardware and pickup combos I can throw at it. I always keep coming back to having it be just a standard S/S tele as I find that combo covers pretty much everything that I need. I'm having some issues making a decision on bridge pickups. See, I love telecasters and I love the sound, clarity, punch, and overall versatility it gives. But I also love hard rock, metal, alt rock, lots of gain etc...as well as sparkly cleans, ambient music, jazz, and so on. That said... I've been trying to find that perfect middle ground without going full humbucker and so far my current setup is a BKP bootcamp brute force bridge and a GFS goldfoil ferrite neck pickup. 500k pots for a little more loudness. Sounds really good but good gravy the volume drop off between the two is so stark because the bridge is so hot! it also buzzes like a honeybee farm with gain. (usually gain on bridge, clean on neck/neck+bridge) I went the noiseless route for a while with Gen 4 Fender noiseless but they just didn't sound the way I wanted. A little dull, low output, thin at times. I've also used the SD Hot Stack and I can't really remember the way they sounded other than it sounded good but I sold the guitar I had that set in.. maybe that was a sign. Not sure. Memory sucks these days. I don't want to go full humbucker like hot rails but I don't want to stick with just regular single coils since I use so much gain at times (at least on bridge) What do you guys recommend that's a good middle ground? Has more "oomph" than the thin fender ones I tried but without going full blown humbucker like hot rails. Decent output but not so ridiculous that the neck disappears, can handle everything a normal tele can, just more full bodied- more mids perhaps without losing twang and character. Currently I've got my eye on the mojotone broadcaster quiet coils or the dimarzio area hot T bridge as a starting point! TL;DR: Need to find fat, full bodied, noiseless telecaster pickup that's versatile without losing character.
