Ok so I went and got me a fender MIM telecaster a fw weeks ago, brand new for only $300 the store I got it from had them for awhile and wanted to get rid of them so they could order the new stuff. I cant play it until christmass though. However I was aloud to play it for about 30 mins through my amp. I think that the pickups are exceptable but I think they sound a little bland, so at first I started looking at Seymour Duncan, I was kind of thinking about the hot tele lead for the bridge. But then I remembered some of teh pickups that you cant get at like musicians friend or guitarcenter. Imediatly I thought of BKP and I dident know much about the 2 or 3 sets that they offer for teles but someone had suggest the brown sugar set to me so I was sort of thinking about that even though I had never heard them before. Then I rememberd Kinman pickups and thought that they would be nice, I was looking at like the ol' 69's or somthing like that. What do you guys think about these pickups? I play blues and rock and I have a marshall jcm900.
( I dont want a glassy treble sound on my distortion, I want sort of a creamy sound but still keeping that bite you get with the bridge tele pickup, I want alot of balls in the sound just a really nasty sounding distortion.)

I think the BKPs or Kinmans will make it sound better, but will also cost about as much as the guitar cost, which I honestly wouldn't advise

I'd try to find a used set of Fender Texas Specials, or maybe even just put some Tex Mex pickups in it.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
