Hi ,

I am planning to by a new guitar soon , probably a Fender Tele.
Now the tele isn't much of hardrock guitar so I want to swap the bridge pickup.

I am thinking of gettin in the bridge position a seymour duncan hotrail humbukcer instead of standard single coil.

I like playing hardrock , rock , blues , indie , little bit punk , grunge , ...
Metal is not my cup of tea...

The tele is pretty well known for his clean twangy sound. So I want to replace my volume or tone knob with a push/pull knob so I can split the humucker and get a nice clean tele (twangy) sound out of it.

What do you guys think , is this a good idea ? Any other suggestions that I can do ? Other humbucker ? Little'59 maybe ? I dunno ...

I probably gonna get a bigsby to on the tele

Thanks Dimitri

Oke ,

I figured out that the hot rails mostly are for hard - rock to metal and everything between
So I don't need those.

But what about the Little'59 ???
Can't I go really hard with that and also split the humbucker and het a nice clean tone ??? And the bigsby only gets the twang really high and I like a bigsby.
And they stay in tune I heard...

Okay , and what about the pickup ?
Should I let it in , and wait for a couple of months ?
And then maybe decide if I want something harder or not ???

Thanks Dimitri

i found that the stock tele bridge pickup is great for rock. i played one through a b-52 at-100 at guitar center and i was getting a decent hard rock sound
