I am putting together a thinline 69 (single coils). Wondering if cleaner pickups or snarlier pickups are better with a thinline body. I'll point out that I don't want really high output pickups - just a little more snarl/output than really clean pickups. The thinline body is supposed to round out the tone a bit - so maybe the clean pickups are better (does the snarl get lost in the hollow body sound)? Clean pickups: I already have a set in a CV 50s pine tele. They are from a custom shop tele (twisted tele neck and "hot" nocaster bridge) which is a classic/vintage sound that I do like. Snarly pickups: I'm thinking pure vintage 58 or 64 pickups. I'm trying to decide whether the snarly set goes straight into the thinline, or I swap the clean pickups into the thinline and drop the snarly set into the CV. I guess I'll find out when I get the thinline together (might be a bit though - super busy but I can't turn off the guitar part of my mind!).
