So anyway I have a Standard Tele and need to replace the pickups sometime so I was wondering what you guys thought was better the Texas Specials or the Noiseless. If it helps I play like hardcore and metal typed stuff.
Get a stacked humbucker if you don't feel like changing hardware. DiMarzio makes a Tele version of the Chopper that would be great for the sounds you're looking for. None of the Fender brand stuff is hard enough for what you're looking for. A Chopper will give you a sound that comparable to a medium-powered full size humbucker.
