Hi all! Very new to the group - have done a lot of searching and always come back to zombie threads here so figured it may be simplest to post here. I'm currently specing out a partcaster for a dream tele but my knowledge is eclipsed. Professionally i'm a bassplayer, but when I have had the opportunity to play guitar I have always gravitated to teles of the broadcaster variety. I'm looking to make something that is very brash + crunchy. Not high gain- just crunchy but articulate. More chordal + full open chords than single notes stylistically. More rock orientated I guess. Not trying to nail any particular persons tone. I've ordered an Ash MJT body + a 50s style one piece maple neck(like 'em thick). I'm leaning towards callaghan hardware (vintage with brass saddles) But am really stuck on where I should be aiming pickup wise - what will give me a lot of gnarl and bite. Good bottom, prominent mids, lots of top. Decidedly tele and definitely single coil? Any help is appreciated!
