Looking for a stock size noiseless neck pick up that is good for a full clean jazz tone. Any ideas?
Seymour Duncan vintage stack.

Don't worry about the noise.
Don't worry about the routing either.
Cavalier Fat Lion King. Not noiseless, but very quiet and provides a warm, fat jazz tone without sacrificing clarity.
Dimarzio area T neck, and your standard tone control.
I've heard a few vids of folks that can play getting a nice jazz tone with stock neck and middle pickup, can't remember what model tele, I'm constantly searching for tele vids of players in that caliber but 99% of the vids are from styles I simple don't like or someone banging out with a distortion pedal. I'll have to actually play some to know for sure.
Klein Alnico 4 neck pickup . Just ask . He stopped making them because narrow minded people refused to even try them because Fender never offered Alnico magnets . Well , until recently . He has the magnets and will build them if you ask . I have used them and like them very much .
Also what I was using on a vintage tele after the neck p/u went south. Exceptional for recording IMO plus I do a few jazz standards.
Was pretty good with jazz, blues, rock, soft-rock, big-band and not expensive. I use Seymour Duncans on my Les Paul but have always used Dimarzio on the tele.
Always wondered if boutique pickups at twice the price have twice the tone.
My guitar guy in Vegas that made guitars for the Beatles, Mike Campbell and others liked this for the Tele neck. Might not be “jazzy” enough for you though. Seymour Duncan STR-2 hot rhythm tele neck pickup.
Harmonic design vintage plus.
Not noiseless, but really really quiet.
It's my favorite neck single coil tone by far.
big humbucker like Ed Bickert used
Wilde L280TN. Noiseless, beautiful clear sound. Turn down the tone control for a warm, clear jazz sound. My favorite Tele neck pickup. Better output than the DiMarzio Area T neck.
