Alright so recently I found some money and ive got enough to replace the neck pickup in my MIM tele. A few months ago I installed the emg-t set, now before you judge just now that I needed that modern crunch for a band thing that im doing.( I have a les paul that I use to get that cool classic SD crunch) But I decided that I dont like the neck emg so much when playing blues and I want to replace it with a pickup that is ideal for blues. Any suggestions?

IDK if there is any ideal pickup for playing blues. You just use whatever you have.

But wouldn't a lipstick pickup be ideal? Or is your tele routed for HB's because of the EMGs?

If so, I suggest you go with a P90 style PU, or a PAF.

Idk I mean whats the advantage of a lipstick pickup?
Actually I had already thought about a p90 because I would love to have one but I would have to cut into the guitar and I dont want to do that.\
whats HB's?

HB=Humbucker.

Apparently, it isn't routed for humbuckers.

I like lipsticks because the have that unique high mid, with a bit rounder low end than a regular single coil.

Also, it's the pickup that should be in the neck of a tele.

I don't think anything of the Dimarzio virtual t because I've never used it.

And that is what I meant by lipstick

Dude, it's called a lipstick tube pickup.

Or just a lipstick pickup.

Danelectro has been using them for years, as has Fender in the Telecaster. Though the Telecaster pickup is a bit different.

It's the same thing.
