    So I've been playing a Mexican tele I got in 2003. At one point I tried Twisted Tele pickups and then switched back, appreciating the tele sound again. But I've always wondered how I could upgrade the stock pickups. I played a friend's US tele and I can remember thinking the bridge pickup sounded better, fatter. What's an equivalent upgrade to US tele pickups?

    I play stock pickups, but I've heard good things about the Nocaster set.

    I put Vintage Noiseless Pickups in my MiM Standard and I like them
