    I'm working on a Tele build and have everything I need for assembly except for pickups. This build will have a Bigsby B16 and I'm wondering which pickups to use. I'll be shimming the neck to get things to fit. I'm guessing that'll mean I'll need to raise the pickups, whichever I choose, to get closer to the strings. Would a higher output pickup be a good idea here?

    I'm currently leaning towards either Dimarzio Twang Kings or the beefier version, True Velvets. Or maybe a combo of the two?

    Could someone with a Bigsby B16 comment on what they've used?
