    Looking for a Don Mare bridge pickup that will match the output of my Lollar Charlie Christian neck pickup. Any experience out there?

    I went with the matching Lollar Blade Style. They make a good match, and are RWRP for hum canceling in the center position. Is there a reason you're looking specifically for a Mare?

    Something Broadcaster-ish. Is that his 0038? I'm a big fan of neck CC pickups, but have found the bridge usually needs to be something beefy.

    I want a more traditional bridge pickup and I'd like to try one of his.

    I agree on something broadcaster-ish. I have used Christian-style pickups in a few teles, and like a bit more girth and snarl in the bridge - think 50s, not 60s.
