After success with my first build earlier this year I'm building the guitar I always wanted to build.
It's gonna be a Fender Tele with folyd rose trem and hss pickups with an Ibanez style humbucker, Tele style middle pup and Strat style neck pup. Few questions though...
I've got another tele and want to get that classic bridge tele sound from the middle pickup. Will a tele bridge pup work ok for that or will the effect be lost as the strings aren't as tense that far away from the bridge?
I'm looking for a classic clean strat pup and not sure which is best to go for.
And finally, the Ibanez humbucker. I want this to scream (though I don't want actrive) and be uberresponsive (think lots of hammer-ons, Van Halen style).
To top it off, all this pickups need to fit into the Tele body I'm getting. I may end up getting SDs or another make (depending on the advice I get) or maybe even go for official Fender pups. However, will there be problems with spacings? ie will a fender strat pup fit into a tele ok? I have my doubts...
Any advice on any of this would be greatlly appreciated.
