Just got these installed, and couldn't be happier! As a big fan of the classic Tele single coil bridge pickup tone, I was worried the replacement single coil would be a little too aggressive, but the desire to add a humbucker option was enough to give it a shot. I have to say, I'm blown away. I love the sound of both the single and humbucker. Awesome Tele "spank" in single coil mode, and just the right amount of growl with the humbucker. This is now my #1 guitar!
One note - I wired the pickup into a 5-way switch instead of a push-pull pot, with the classic Tele pickup options in the first 3 positions and the humbuckers options in the last two. Just a more comfortable set-up for me, especially when playing live.
1) Bridge Single coil
2) Bridge Single coil + Neck
4) Bridge Humbucker + Neck
5) Bridge Humbucker)
I haven't seen this wiring diagram online anywhere, so if anyone wants it, let me know and I'll share. Thanks, Rio Grande!
