It's for a stratocaster, but I currently have a Hot Rod telecaster. The bridge pickup in the tele is hotter than usual, and sounds quite excellent with overdriven tones if I just dial back the treble a touch on the guitar. I know there must be a strat single coil that can compare, but I'm not sure which. It's got to bite and crunch naturally, kinda like a humbucker. It's gotta be hot.
