This is interesting. I remember an early interview on why he has a fralin in the guitar and he said bc his pickup went bad and he needed to replace it (before he was really big). He said that it sounded most like the original 68 pickup. This is weird to me because I have played a few mid-late 60s teles and they are bright and clear but the fralin isnt bright and clear (I think lollars are bright and clear), the fralins are more punch and bite and warmer/darker. As always, its a combo of the guitar and everything so its a hard choice. But brads tele is alder and is very heavy.
