    Good choice, but the Seth Lover model will be about the same output as well. The Seth will be a bit warmer and the A2Pro will have just a tad more scooped mids. I had an Alnico II Pro in a guitar with a Custom Custom in the Bridge. The Alnico II Pro was the best neck pickup for that guitar. Of course, it was a thinline ES-335 type.

    Good luck...

    I would worry about AP2 = Slash...

    Most of Slash's tradmark tone came from his use of Jubillees, anyway (and obviously his playing style, Les Paul etc etc, than the A2P's anyway...

    If you're after a great sounding pickup, with low output and a nice rich rounded mid heavy tone, then the A2P is hard to beat...

    Its a mohogany bod, so maybe it wouldnt be so bright. Thats what Slash used right? I never liked his tone.

    i think the '59n ... yes it will overpower the bridge, but i think thats the point given what he wants ... i love the AIIP humbucker in the neck too .. not sure if it would be too bright in the neck of a tele or not

    good luck
    cheers,

    APTL-1?

    I like keith richard's tone, but I dont think I could use it personally
    What low output HBs are there? I wanty a somewhat chunky but clear sound

    Personally, I would go with either an APH-1n, a PG, a 59, or a Seth. The APTL-1 is my favorite Tele bridge pickup. It is, however a litle lower output than it's counterparts. With Alnico II magnets and it's lower output, you can raise it closer to the strings without any tonal detriment,

    wow, maybe a seth as i think it would sound a little like zeppelin but none of the others really and i think it would overpower the A2pro bridge in a tele. I think most humbuckers would overpower that bridge pickup as it doesn't seem to be all that strong. A 59 would also sound good in the neck of a tele, but that reminds me of the stones tone more than anything else. Another one to think about is the A2pro humbucker. It is nice and round plus i think that it will sound pretty good in a brighter guitar like a tele. Sorry i couldn't really nail one down for you but i think this might be a trial and error process to find a neck humbucker that will match and not completely overpower that bridge pickup. Good luck.
