New to the forum, been playing for many years - southern rock, blues rock, light rock. My current rig is a '62 Gretsch Tennessean into a Winfield Elizabeth amp (Blackface Deluxe Reverb clone) with Boss Blues Driver and Tremelo. (I have an old 5A3 that sounds pretty good, too). I like to keep things simple, play a lot of cleans, and flavor my tone with the amp settings and pedals. I'm in the early planning stage for a Tele build (probably a Warmoth ash body and Maple neck). I know that every answer is "it depends" or "what sounds best to you" but I'm hoping a few of you have been down this path before and can give me advice based on your own experience. I want to build a single pickup Tele clone/partscaster and my specific questions at the moment are: Is there a better/best/optimum location for a single pickup that would deliver sound/tone that would be the best compromise between the neck and bridge pickups in a two-pickup system? I rarely play the bridge pickup alone and 90% of my playing with the 2 pickup system in the Gretsch is with the switch in the middle and volumes around 60-40, neck-bridge. All things being equal (scale length), my head tells me that the optimum position would be the same distance as the nut to sound hole center on an acoustic guitar, but that may be faulty thinking. Of the gazillion pickups on the market, any recommendations for one that might really shine in a single pickup guitar? I'd like something with a normal or average output (not a hot pickup) and, again, one that has a more even output across the spectrum so I can flavor the tone with the amp and pedals. I'm open to any brand and any type (single coil, P90, HB, TV Jones, HiLo's, alnico, etc. Etc.) Thanks in advance.
