What's a really good blues pickup? I'm putting it in my Telecaster Custom. It's gonna be a neck humbucker since my telecaster has 2 humbuckers rather than the regular telecaster pickup.

the one in there already isn't too bad, from what i remember. i'd seriously consider a new amp instead, that's your problem regarding a good blues tone. even something like a fender champion 600, valve junior, maybe one of those crate v-series amps (haven't tried them, but they seem to be good value at the moment)...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

actually I really like the one in there and I get a pretty sweet blues tone from my amp but the bridge pickup stopped working and I'm thinking of just moving the neck over and buying a better one for the neck. I've heard good things about duncans for blues and I figure it'd probably be better than what's in there even though it's already good.
I never use the bridge pickup on that guitar so I don't really care what's in there, that's why I don't just replace that.

oh, ok. i'm not sure i'd move the neck one to the bridge, if it's designed to work best in the neck position, it might not sound too good in the neck.

are you any good at soldering? odds are it's just a dodgy solder joint, rather than the pickup being broken...

You can do better than duncans. I always answer pickup threads with this, but go to rockmonkeyguitars.com and email the guy with your pickup request. He can at least point you in the right direct. Plus there's a 10% discount for UGers.

the pickup isn't broken, you just have a wiring problem.

I don't know about the reissues but my old Fender with a Fender humbucker is a different size then a standard humbucker so you may need a new pickguard as well.

EMG is best for blues and also 4 teh br00tlz

that's a good point about the size, it'd be worth checking. from memory (could be wrong) they might use more than one screw for adjusting the height, too.

I would get the pup re-soldered. If you can't do it, it won't cost more than $20 to have a shop do it. And like Dave said, concentrate on a new amp for blues/rock. The amps you have aren't the best at that - try a Classic 30 or Blues Jr and od and see what you think.

Single coils are better for blues... can you make that happen?

Uhhh nope...anyways I'd check out a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates. Would be nice for blues in the neck.
