    I'm know here are tons of threads on the topic, but it's a new year!

    can you recommend me a neck pickup?

    I'm looking for:

    42 awg copper wound

    Around 7.32 + output

    Alnico V

    NOT noiseless

    Call Rob at Cavalier pickups. He can do that for a reasonable price and his neck pickups come with the separate cover ground wires.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    I LOVE my Lollar Royal T neck pickup. Alnico V, 42 guage, but the output is just slightly lower at 6.24k. Best neck pickup I have ever played. Super clear and chimey.

    Cavalier makes amazing neck pickups. IMO, more versatile and more depth than a standard tele neck PU.

    +1 Custom wound to your specs at no extra cost. Not noiseless, but Rob's are the quietest single coils I have ever experienced. He also ships so fast you'd think he could time travel.

    Zhangbucker, at Zhangbucker.com. The guy's name is David Plummer, he does a great job. I use his pickups in my Tele and Strat. Great Tele neck pup.
