    That's a lot of soul for a 23-year-old kid! ;) Sounds great, and after acquiring a couple of Teles, I've come to appreciate the neck pickup, too.

    Also over the course of my life I've gone from "it's gotta be humbuckers" to mostly single-coil guitars—especially when I got into surf music with the clean tones.

    I love neck pickup cleans of (almost) all types; tele, strat, jazzmaster, p90, paf (most high-output hums sound like mud).

    But I've never had a BRIDGE clean tone that I cared for until I got a tele!

    I was playing this afternoon and had that clean Telecaster tone. Switched songs. Yech. Picked up my SG plugged into my VOX AC15C1. There was the tone I wanted.

    sounds good but if you don't learn how to breathe while you're playing your gonna stroke out. J.S.

    But there's a downside, to playing super clean, I think. When you make a series of mistakes, or if you're just having a bad day, there's nothing like big pedal board to get you by.

    I've been doing my best, to focus on playing clean, the last dozen years. Some days, it sure isn't easy.

    That's great, the tone on the neck position of a Tele has a little more spark, then the neck of a Strat. Both
    have been used a million times by all, but the Tele tone is so beautiful.

    And yet folks are constantly asking for pickup suggestions that will give them that Strat neck tone. Ie: Twisted Tele pickups.:confused::D

    I really want to build an Esquire clone, but that neck pickup goodness...:cool:
