Greetings, gents. I'm curious what a Little 59 will sound like in the bridge position of a Tele w/rosewood fretboard and hoping to hear from guys here that have tried that pickup or similar. Thanks
I had one for a very little while - the Dimarzio Area Hot T replaced is and that one's a keeper for me anyway.
What neck pickup and pot values are you using with the Area Hot T?I have had a lil 59 in the bridge of my CV 50s Tele & it didn't do much for me in that guitar.
It's currently in a partscaster Tele I built paired up with a Duncan Jazz in the neck and it's a ton better there.
The CV50s Tele is very heavy (just over 10lbs) & leans on the darker side tonally.
The Area T in it now suits that guitar much better
The partscaster the lil 59 is in is a feather weight &
hardware & electronics in both are the same.
I used a Little '59 for Strat neck pickup. It worked well, but my guitar was already routed for a HB in the neck. It may or may not fit in your guitar. I also tried an Alnico II Pro full-size HB in the neck, but it didn't really balance with the Little '59 in the bridge at all.I love the Lil '59 in my Tele... But now I need to get a higher output neck pickup to match it...
