    Mainly for three reasons:

    1-Because I can
    2-Because I want to
    3-Because I fancy

    All the time I hear: 'Nobody buys a Tele for the neck pickup, right?', and I confess I felt like I must be a total dumbass after I bought my Tele specifically because of the neck pickup. But I'm still in love with it, years later, and I'm glad it's struck a chord with you too. I have a Revstar with humbuckers; a Cabronita with TV Jones; a Strat and a Tele, and they're all wonderful instruments, but the sweetest pickup of the lot is the Tele neck. Mine's a Noiseless v4, and it's just brilliant.

    I use the neck pickup on all my guitars (except my Junior and Esquire of course :D). I've got some Fender 'Original Vintage' pickups in my Classic 50s Tele and love the neck tone on it. Into my Fender '64 Custom Deluxe it's beautifully rich. Into my Marshalls it has a superb crunch to it and fattening the sound up.

    In fact it's maybe a little odd that I own a Junior and Esquire because I tend to spend more time on the neck pickups on my other guitars than I do the bridge. I'm quite partial to the middle position on my Tele too, but I don't feel like I'm an idiot for liking the neck position. :)

    They're superb Tees. I had one in Butterscotch Blonde followed by a special factory run model in Gold Bronze. It's my go to axe.

    That Tele sounds great, and good playing as well!

    I have a MIM Player Series Tele, and I love the sound of the neck (on my strat also) PU. I have my Kat 50 Mk II set up similar to the Studio Rats settings, with a few minor tweaks for my ears. How do you have yours set up?
