I like my Telecaster very much, but the thing I don't like about it is that when ever I play solos, they sound flimsy. Very weak, even though I have a pretty decent amp, although it's home-made. So I'm going to change my pickups. I want a tone that's similar to Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. Here's some examples.

Please, don't say to just buy two Lace Sensor Reds. They're pretty hard to get in the country I live, and their expensive as hell too. Some affordable mini-humbucker suggestions are very welcome.

Ok, but seriously - I've heard plenty of good things about Seymour Duncan Hot Rails and Dimarzio Fast Track II minihumbuckers, not exactly what you want for Radiohead-ish sound, but they'll certainly give your sound more mids and punch.

I was considering buying Hot Rails a long time ago, but I've actually heard BAD things about t hem. They say that the Hot Rails are mostly for metal, and that's not the sound I'm looking for.

I don't know anything about the Fast Track II though. What does it sound like?

Actually if you're willing to spend a bit you could get a Fender 85 amp for 100-200 US dollars on eBay, then just get the Hot Rails and you should be able to get Jonny's tone in a pinch since he uses the 85 for his crazy distorted tone.

Should I really use the Hot Rails? I heard they're very middy, but I'm looking for a bright cutting tone. A Tele tone with lots and lots of balls.
