I need help choosing a replacement for my Tele bridge. it doesnt have enough low end and sounds kinda shrill. it needs more punch. I need a pickup that handle the OD and distortion but also go to cleans in a snap. i've been browsing through various pickups on musciansfriend but dont know how each one really sounds. btw i need cleans for worship (but with a little boost).

What amp do you have?

The tele bridge sound is kind of its trademark tone.

Shot in the dark but have you considered maybe an EC midboost circuit?

The thing is with the t-59 is that it sounded too similar too my SD SH-6 in my Explorer. I wanted the classic tele 'twang', so I switched it with a regular american single-coil.

As for muddiness, it sounded clearer than my Explorer with the same high gain settings. However, this may be attributed to the Alder vs. Mahogany bodies, since Alder is much brighter.

On clean settings it also sounded similar to my SH-6, thick. Kinda having a brighter, clearer neck pickup in the bridge. Although, the SH-6 had a bit more treble.

With that being said, I don't know too much about the dynamics of the sound since I switched to a single-coil shorty after I bought my Tele used. But it sounded just as hot as the SH-6, that I know.

My amp is a Vox AD30VT by the way, with a Tungsol 12ax7 preamp tube.
