    Default Replacement pickups for Nashville Telecaster

    Do I have a disease, I posted a request for help yesterday, and not one response?

    I just bought a Mexican Nashville Telecaster - it still has the 3 MexTex pickups and I am looking to optimize the guitar for blues and occasional country. Does anyone have a suggestion for replacement pickups?

    Thanks

    There's really a lot you could do with that combo. A JD with a couple of APS-2's would be sweet also.

    It looks like you only have 1 post. Where's the one from yesterday?

    Anyway...+1 to Artie's suggestion.

    I agree w/ Artie about the JD in the bridge. I personally am liking Alnico 5 neck pickups a bit more than the A-2s lately, for that great chime. So,

    Vintage tele neck, ssl-1, jd. I have used that combo for a bit and still have the ssl-1 and JD. It works great and gives that stratty notch position a little more brightness.

    Mine's a bit different: Duncan SM-1 mini-bucker at the neck, stock TexMex in the middle, Duncan Vintage 54 bridge. The JD was my second choice in the bridge, but I'm liking the 54 fine so far.

    One thing I noticed, though is that the bridge/middle position doesn't Strat-quack as much as it should. I had a MIJ Tele years ago that I self-Nashvillized; that guitar had the Vintage 54 bridge and Vintage Staggered Strat middle. It quacked better. Even though the Tex Mex and the Vintage Staggered are quite similar, I think I'll try the Duncan next time I have a few spare bucks, to see if it gets along better with my bridge pickup.
