Well, I've been saving up for a Tele, just started a month ago, and when I finally get the guitar, I want to put a Texas Special in the bridge, and a Sumarian Cobalt Noiseless in the neck. I also think it would be real cool to put something in the middle. So I was thinking about either the Standard MIM Telecaster and routing a hole in the middle, or taking the extra time to save up and buy a Nashville Telecaster and putting the said pickup combo in and a third one in the middle. So, which is the best deal, money and safety/easy-wise?

Also, what is a truly heavy, crunchy single coil, of single-sized pickup I could put in the middle?
