    I'm gonna swap the neck pup in my suhr t antique. I like the bridge pup, but for me the neck pup isnt realy usable on its own.

    I tried a Baja and I really liked the sound of the neck pup, probably because I mostly play strats. I thought I'd try a twisted Tele in the neck of my suhr but those pups are sold as a set.

    Is there any other pickup makers who makes something which sounds like the twisted Tele?

    Have a look on eBay, quite a few neck pickups of that type available.

    You could always buy the pair and then sell the one you don’t want on eBay or Reverb?

    Dimarzio Twang King Neck is very similar.

    I personally have never cared for the twisted tele pickups. My favorite are Budz, especially the Danocaster spec. Far and away the BEST tele pickups I've ever heard, and I've heard a ton.

    You can find them on eBay easily. I bought a set for $80 but they have single pickups too. Otherwise I’d try Dimarzio Twang King.

    So just a suggestion.Q pickups which I found on Ebay,Reverb SOLD me a Tele bridge pickup 12k quite hot but retains the older Tele tone. I was suitably impressed and fair priced as well. They offer custom builds for low prices.
    As mentioned above any of those pickup makers are excellent along with
    Sheptone,Manluis,Vintage Vibe Pickups as well

    The twang king seem interesting and cheap. Do you guys think it will balance well with the suhr t bridge?
