    Hot Tele lead Stack does it for my. Handles gain very well, and keeps the Tele character, something I don't think the Hot Rails will does, since it sounds very much like a humbucker.

    Its funny that we have our own words that we associate with sounds! When I saw the word 'chugging' I thought of the hot stack for tele bridge. I've only tried the strat hotstack and its thick and powerful. As for the neck, it depends how creative you want to get with using different type pickups - and also whats under the scratch plate. Not all telecasters have routing for anything but a telecaster pickup. Something sigle coil and vintagy would sound good - so many options with that one!
    I tried a Entwistle ASN 57 (A5) neck Stack and it's the Only Stack i've ever liked ~ it will stay. I am getting some insane sounds when paralled with the A4 in bridge ( full size rotated 180* ) that midd. position ( with Crazy Bite ) will be a whole new animal for my Tube gear next week when I run it . It makes all 3 positions useful for more than I hoped for . MY Effects and Gear will make it totally unique for some standard tuned orig.

    That sounds like not enough magnet combo experimentations to me

    Possibly, but if I have a series tone I love, I am not going to mess that up chasing something else. I'd rather just get on to playing.

    I would go with a dimarzio chopper t and a twang king neck.

    Wire the chopper series/parallel/split.

    Richie kotzen approves btw.

    Indeed ---^^^

    I Relate ~ I dont Chase much either ( always open minded on Tone tho - its never ending on a tiny bit more potential . I'm not sure You use that much Tube power though - more heavily Processed stuff ? I run limited effects and alot of power live and for decent amount of recording to bring in Power + Preamp tubes . Get really nice Shapes with the analog + a few effects . btw - I'd ALWAYS rather just get on to Playing - as well : )
