    About to fit an SD hotrails STHR-1b to my Classic 50's tele for some hard rocking gigs I've got coming up - any suggestions on what neck pickup would be a reasonable match??

    I put a Hot Rails in my Squier bridge, I then contacted SD by phone, and they recommended the Vintage Stack for the neck as the best match.

    Mind you--this was for VERSATLITY, not necessarily to totally nail down one particular sound or style.

    Also keep in mind that I'm now rewiring to a 5-position switch to get the most out of both Bucks, for more variety.

    I have a vintage stack in the neck position of my Squier Pro-tone Tele.
    It's a great pu!
    I hardly ever use the bridge position because it sounds weak and single-coily compared to the SD stacker.
    A hot rail or the little 59 is my next step if someone can make up my mind which to get!
