    Honestly I think the best tele bridge pickups come right from Fender. The Broadcaster is a great pickup, and the Pure Vintage '64 is another fantastic pickup. You don't need to go boutique to get an amazing sounding Tele pickup, Fender's are fantastic. That is, if you want it to sound like a Tele

    The Broadcaster is one of my favorite Tele bridge pickups. Either the Fender or Seymour Duncan versions are great, I'm akin to the Custom shop ones Fender have on their Vintage Hot Rod 61 Teles. I wasn't able to get some for my Talman at the time so I ended up getting BKP The Boss set, which are also pretty good.

    The Fender Twisted Tele is a great neck pickup as well

    This is excellent advise. I have a set of his tele pickups and they sound great.

    Fralin's are the way to go IMHO. I have a set in my Tele and a set of vintage hots in my STRAT. They sound exactly like a Fender is supposed to.

    I had a STRAT years ago with Lollar vintage blondes in it and those where awesome too. I'm sure they make a Tele variety that would be great as well.

    Yep, it's here:

    I have an Oil City Hardman pickup in my Esquire partscaster. I can't fault it at all, nice and twangy for clean stuff but clear enough to be able to get up to at least mid-gain. I'm running it with a slightly higher tone cap - 0.038uF I think - to make up for the lack of neck pickup.

    Having said that, I'd recommend checking some of the Aussie builders as well. I've heard good things about Martin A Smith's pickups in particular. Probably saves a lot versus going through the whole import hassle.

    The Lollars in my Nash T69TL sound pretty amazing.
