I need one for Zebra II and i'm really not informed on the best models and brands for this. Its a departure for me.
Basically i have a slightly hot rodded paf nordstrand in the bridge, and i'm wanting something vintagy to vintage modern. I'm going to be using this for cleans and post rocky type stuff. Something fat and wide, kinda chimey like a good strat or tele. Something with character. Purty.

Also, a chrome cover would be awesome. Do they sell these that fit on any single?

I would look at Rio Grande they have one that is supposed to fairly vintage (tallboy) and they have one that is hot rodded (Muy Grande)

Also try the Seymour single or give Wolfe a call :2cents:

Nope which absolutely sucks because half the appeal of a tele is the sweet ass neck single with the open coil bridge.

Why not have Nordstrand make you something that matches that description?

Good luck on the chrome cover. Not likely to happen, unless you want to spend a lot of dough on one-off fabrication.

If you don't mind lower output you could use a Tele neck pickup which are chrome covered or get a lipstick tube pickup like this.

Have you tried just going direct to the source? I'm pretty sure they'll sell to the public.

I have not. I'l go shoot them an email. I just figured dealing direct might be quite expensive compared to a dealer.
