Hi, I'm thinking of putting some new pups into my MIM tele. It's routed for humbuckers in the neck (i think). I give it a new sound. I was thinking of either putting hot rails in the bridge, or putting a humbucker in the neck. Problem is, I know that a neck humbucker would give me a fatter tone, but I really love the cleans on the neck pickup now. Do you have any suggestions on which humbucker I should put in my neck position? One that has nice cleans for blues and chord work, but also good distortion. I play punk.

edit:

Sorry in advance for my crappy grammar and stuff.

Just get texas specials they will take what the pickups are now but give it more punch and make it able to handle more distortion but still have all the sounds you like on it now.

It's actually pugna.

So...what's a pugna?

I have a Seymour Duncan Jazz humbucker in the neck, and it's fantastic. I'd say that's good for nice cleans runs, and when you turn up the distortion, it still delivers.

tele bridges have the pick-up screws set up differently, so they won't work with strat pick-ups.

red dots = screws on tele bridge pick-up
blue dots = screws on a strat bridge pick-up
