    They are two absolutely stunning teles, DHart - if you forced one on me I'd probably opt for the white. My own CIJ tele has Cavaliers - Huge Lion at the bridge and Fat Lion King at neck. They're great - a lot of versatility from one to the other and in between.

    Well PW is correct imo, it's my least favourite component on a Tele.

    TL;DR I almost never use my neck pickups on both my telle and strat. I just like more glass and bite out of my tone. I also require humbuckers in the bridge position, just my personal preference for the music I create and play with my band. But I do use an abuse the middle position on my tele, and positions three and four in my strat.

    Now, I did change the neck pickup on the Telecaster just to have more presence and glass out of the middle position.

    Ymmv...
