I'm doing a revamping of my Telecaster and one of the things I'm hung up on is the pickups. One of the things I hate most about my tele as it is, is that the neck pickup is too dull and quiet, while the bridge is piercing. I know thats kind of the nature of the telecaster, and I do like the middle position how it is, but I want to turn this into a good fuzzy rock guitar. It will be used primarily with my Muffs, and Fuzz Face, with a little of some other distortions thrown in. An idea of the tone I'm thinking of is Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys. For clean tones I want the neck to be warm like a strat neck, without the midrange honk, and I want the bridge to be full and not too bitey.

I'm thinking a mini humbucker in the neck and a standard tele bridge pickup. Probably going to be getting pups from GFS because I've had good experiences with their stuff and I'm not looking to spend a bunch on this. Suggestions?

One of my Teles has the GFS fat bodies in it, I have been more than pleased, probably not what you want for the neck, but the bridge growls nicely but a slight twist of the volume know and it is clean and spanky.

I have Dream 90's in my offset though and if this sounds like my other guitars, one of them is gonna get neglected

Best Tele pickups on the planet IMO. Read all of it; it's worth it. Possibly a little pricey, but they are incredible. You can email him what you want, and he can recommend you something.

I'm thinking a Super Paul Bunyan bridge and a normal Paul Bunyan neck but that will depend on some pedal sales
