Not particularly- there is a pretty big jump in volume between the two in humbucking mode.
Bridge in parallel is more balanced to the neck pickup in series and nice on cleanish sounds.
I only use the Bridge pickup in series for balls out distorted sounds.
I suppose I'm after someting fat and clear but not too overly middy- not too bothered about "authentic Tele tone - my gtr currently has a nice Harmonic Design S90 - sorta P90-ish... I'd really like something with higher output though
My Hiwatt has plenty of mids and sometimes its a little over-cooked!
Try the Vintage Tele stacks in the neck and bridge position then- or go for Kinmans.
... are you talking bout the Alnico ones?
Yup. They are flat out amazing for recordings.
