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.

EMG ... are you talking bout the Alnico ones?
Yup. They are flat out amazing for recordings.

one squire (first series), and one 1967

the small guiter inbetween is a National from 51, howling wolf used this type guitar... also Ry Cooder uses the pickups on strats.

This tele thread had me inspired to cut with a tele yesterday. (like I should need the inspirado) So I get to the studio and.. NO TELES in the house. Both are out at my partners house getting cleaned, stringed, intonated..

So it was a Strat, Les Paul, & 335 kinda day.
(Hey Jim.. I used your valve jr on the basics, and it killed. Nice little amp.) thumbsup

my reissue 72 custom deluxe, further customized

i've had this since 2003, just recently added a seymour duncan mick thompson blackout in the bridge and a seymour duncan live wire classic II in the neck, locking tuners, battery box, matte black pick guard, locking strap pegs. this has been my favorite guitar since i bought it because it just feels good in my hands and fits my play style. with the pickup combo i can play anything from smooth blues to devistating death metal..... wut u think?

wow... you resurrected an OLD thread !!

so here's my latest - and it's so killer that it's caused me sell nearly all of my other teles over the last few months

a real deal '56 tele - my desert island guitar - and the baddest tele I've ever held in my hands !!

I just re-fretted and plek'd it - and everybody who plays it just looks at me in disbelief

like all - well...99.9% - 50s Fenders, the body is ash. This one happens to be a 1 pc ( which isn't all that common ).. it appears darker than ash from years of sweat - but it's absolutely ash

as you can tell from the pics i installed after market saddles on the bridge to solve a string snapping problem... but i would actually like to install a more modern bridge with more stable saddles and adjustment screws that dont puncture my palm muting hand. all you gear heads gotta know a site that has a perfect fit for this thru body design
