    Thinking of putting a humbucker in the neck of my tele, right now theres a fralin p90 in there, but im looking for something with a little more balls, if that makes sense. Any suggestions?

    Tom Short Undercover Mini. The one in my Tele neck kills! It's a mini hum in a humbucker size. In your case I think he makes a p90 sized mini....it would be worth checking his website.

    I'll second the mini-humbucker. There are several good ones, but the Klein mini sounds "right" to my ears for a Tele.

    I went with Peter Florence Voodoo... Gibson style '59... absolutely phenomenal. Most beautiful sounding humbucker I've ever heard...

    Are you willing to change the p/g? That opens up the standard humbucker door.

    Yes i plan on changing the pickguard, and getting a regular size humbucker. Although all the minis look awesome! Smething to think about.

    The Lollar Regals are really nice sounding pickups.

    Mini hums are my favourite neck pickup in teles, replaced the seymour duncan in my hot rod tele with an lp deluxe pickup and both sound ballsier than the single coil.
