I recently refretted a 70's Greco Telecaster Custom for a friend. It was the first time ive tried a tele singlecoil bridge through my setup and it was glorious. This coming winter i'll be building a few guitars. One of which will have a tele bridge. Now i need to find a pickup to go with it. Any recommendations? I know next to nothing about singlecoil pups.
Im only planning to have a single coil bridge at this stage.
I dont plan to play metal with it but id like to get a good rock sound out of it. The Greco sounded pretty weak clean but when i added a distortion pedal (Dod250, ect.. ) it came alive. It was really bright but it had great note definition and with the tone rolled back some i got past the brightness.
Also, what guitar shapes look good with a tele trem (fixed)? Not sure if i want a tele shaped body on this build. Atm, leaning towards a Albert Lee Musicman shape.
