    Hi,
    I'm looking for a noise cancelling tele bridge pup. I'm looking for a slightly beefier sound than classic tele tones.
    What's your fave?
    Thanks!

    the dimarzio virtual hot T is right up your alley. realistic twang, a little beefier than vintage (unlike other stacked pickups, which are weaker and duller than regular single coils) and noiseless. sort of a "blues-rock" tele sound.

    Don't forget to check out Bill Lawrence. I have a set of his L-200s in a tele and they really retain the tele twang with surprisingly little noise.

    I liked the fender custom shop texas specials. If you shield the cavity, it helps cut noise.

    I ended my search for my Telecaster with Tom Anderson TV1 and TV3 single coils. Now I can just play my stuff.

    +1 on the DiMarzio Virtual Hot T.

    I'm going to try a larger value tone pot (500k instead of 250k) for a little brighter sound. Other than that, I love the output of this thing.

    Another vote for Kinman Broadcaster. Quiet, fat, yet clear.
