FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / Vintage Stack + Fender '62 bridge pickup ?



Sep 18th, 2018 11:11 PM   Edit   Profile  

Is this a good match for a jazz players Telecaster:

Fender '62 Custom Tele Bridge Pickup, 005-6075-049
Seymour Duncan Vintage Stack neck

Te 52

For jazz, I would *never* give up the Fender Tele single coil neck pickup. Rich and warm, but with better clarity and definition than your typical humbucker. Even the ones on the lower-cost Teles sound great. It's the bridge pickup where there's room for discussion about aftermarket improvements. JM2ยข.

The neck pickup is a 2018 MIM Fender Standard ceramic. It's muddy on chords. Have you ever played that pickup? I don't think I am giving up much there.

FWIW, I think Te 52 is talking about straying from the single coil design with the stacked humbucker. He does state that he think's the ones on the lower priced models even sound good.

Look, no offense, but we went through some pickup options in the other thread you started and despite some other ideas, you seemed to already know what you wanted. Now we're onto another thread that seems to be continuing the same conversation and I'm not too sure why.

I would say just trust your ears. I don't think any pickups you've suggested would inhibit you from making jazz music.
