OK, don't flame me for it, but I'm picking up either a Squier Standard or an Affinity Tele and I'm gonna have some fun modding it .

I will probably want to replace the pickups and I need some advice, so here's what I want.

I play lots of rock (alternative, southern, a bit of punk) and some blues, so I want a neck pickup with a nice overall sound for chord playing. Nice with some distortion or crunch, and pretty good clean as well. On the bridge, I want something I can turn on just for soloes. I want something that'll really scream for my rock soloes, but also work for a nice crunchy blues solo.

Any suggestions?

Do you want single coils or humbuckers?
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

the pups on my tele are pretty sweet i think the bridge would be ideal for what you want the neck might be a little weak though. they are seymour duncan alnico 2 pro, they say moderate output but thats just the neck the bridge is hotter than my lp

Wayward_Son: I don't care if they are single coils or humbuckers. I can pick up a tele with either in them.

spiritinthesky9: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into those.

I was thinking of getting a Fat Tele and putting a Gibson '57 Classic in the neck and then something else in the bridge. A single coil of some sort obviously.

I have a set of 52's in my Mexican Tele, the brige is absolutely beautifil for chords and the bridge gives you the true Tele twang.

I use a 4-way mod switch and the 4th position is great for leads, or just overdriving your amp.

They're fairly cheap too, you can get a set for what you'd pay for a single SD pup
