Pickup recommendations for Tele

Just picked up a sweet 76 telecaster custom. The pickups have been replaced, sadly, but it still sounds pretty awesome. I am interested in replacing both pickups and trying to restore the original sound. Does anyone have any recommendations for replacement pickups? I can't find original pickups anywhere.

Thanks in advance!

Don't tempt me! I've got Area Ts in my Tele and always wonder if I'm missing out on original sound!

But like you, my Tele sounds awesome without "original" / "vintage" sound. So why change?

It's like having a little devil and angel in each ear...

There are so many out there, that in a blind test you would not be able to tell the difference anyway. Just pick one.

Yes, Don Mare will nail the vintage tone you after. He has a bunch of different pickups on his site. Best to call him and tell him what tone you are after and he will direct you to the right set for your guitar.
