    Considering a Bullet Tele for recording. I have a regular tele and I have a cabronita and want something gritty and twangy and dirty. I know the bullet has a humbucker route in the neck but I'd love to swap both neck and bridge pups and not need to mod the body or pickguard - any suggestions? I'm not hung up on name brand pups either and cool with a small guy. I have Bootstrap pups in my Road Worn and love them!

    Call Dave at Rio Grande Pickups and tell him what you want.

    I believe you answered your own question! Also, the Dimarzio Twang King neck and Chopper are a great option as is Rob's Cavaliers.
