Hey guys!
i bought an Fender Telecaster Custom recently and its has Humbucker Neck and single coil bridge setup.
i swapped out the bridge pickup to Bare Knuckles Piledriver and changed my tone and vol for bridge to 500k pots .
i was wondering if i should change my neck pickup and if yes, what should i change?
usually i use the bridge position only as the neck position sounds abit muddy.
im playing more to Melodic Hardcore stuff.
Thanks!

your big problem there is that i think the neck pickup in the custom is wide-range-sized, which means it's probably not going to be a direct swap for any standard humbucker.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

+1, it looks like you'll have to get a new pickguard. Besides the potential size differences, the mounting screws are completely different. Humbuckers have two in the middle, the Custom neck pup has 4 near the corners.

Did you change all of your pots to 500K? You can try 1meg pots for the neck pup if so and the neck is still too muddy.
