    My #1 has some kind of Seymour Duncans in it. Like, the vintage "replica" ones. Not broadcaster pickups...WAIT, it just came to me, I think they're called "54" something or others?

    I got mine from: Rob Di Stefano, [Fret Tech]. I got his Nashville Lion Bridge pickup, 8.5k ohms, "Twang with guts.".... Fender CS Tex Special neck, 9.5k ohms.... These pickups work very well together. I will eventually get a neck pup from Mr. Di Stefano, who is a well known and popular member here on TDPRI. I love the the pickup he made me. Exactly the sound I wanted........Boutique, hand-wound pickups at 'down to earth' prices...

    My main Tele has a DiMarzio Chopper-T in the bridge and a Les Paul humbucker in the neck. Things get a little raunchy when you crank it up ;)

    Fender American standard (stock) one of few 2012 am. Std. Without the tummy cut or custom shop pickups. Have been entertaining the idea of changing the bridge pup, but the neck pickup is absolutely wonderful!

    FWIW

    This according to Mr. Kirn: Bardens are pickups... ("Side note the Bardens are a derivative of Bill’s designs of the early 70’s, since few sold, he discontinued them and an associate of his, Joe Barden, somewhat later revisited the design and found greater success in marketing them”). Found here.

    I have some cheapo Guitarworks Super Twangs in mine right now. I have a set of Lace one's too, but since my decision change to NOT sell my tele after all, I am considering selling a pedal and grabbing some Mare Zepptones

    BTW, what neck pickup do you folks like for that dark blues tone. I don't mean like modern blues, or SRV,Bonamassa..etc I mean like, Lightning hopkins, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker kinda sound.
