I'm working on some blue prints for a Wilshire guitar body and was wanting to place a fender telecaster bridge on it since I like the bridge (the modern style). I know that the Telecaster bridge comes with the hole for the bridge pick up already In it I was wondering if any pickups fit in this slot (well any single ones) if not what pickups do fit this slot? thanks!

Telecaster pickups, obviously. They can be recognised by the sort of triangular shaped baseplate:



What gives it away is the three screws holding the pickup in place, instead of the two of 'normal' singecoils.

You can tell if it's eager, because you put your hand down her pants and it feels like a horse eating oats.

^ yep or you can get a strat style hard tail or if you route it out you can put a TOM bridge in it

With a TOM bridge you need to alter the neck pocket.

No you don't, but you do need to route the bridge area out so the TOM will set lower into the guitar.

This is the bridge of a Tele style guitar see how it is recessed into the body
