My Fender American Tele currently sports two DiMarzio Virtual Vintage 54 Strat pickups in the neck and middle positions. It has a DiMarzio Area T in the bridge position. I have its stock steel 6-saddle bridge installed and a tortoise pickguard. See pic below.
Decent look but my favorite is below. Same guitar but with an ashtray bridge, mint green pickguard and Tex Mex Tele pickups.
I really don't use the quack tones anymore; so I really don't need three pickups. But, I would like to outfit my Tele with a classic Tele set but fatter-sounding. Classic looks are important and I don't want to stray from that. I need a fatter, warmer tone though. Anybody have any thoughts? As for the bridge position, I'm about settled on the DiMarzio Area Hot T. For the neck, I don't know. I'd like something almost PAFish but a little brighter. I don't know if there's anything available in a chrome or nickel-silver covered Tele neck pickup.
