Neck pickup options for a KC Mustang?

Post by BassOutcast » Sat Jan 20, 2018 12:15 pm

Hey guys, been a while since I've been on this site, kind of been musically numb in the past few years, figuring out who I am, etc.
I've been playing a lot of blues lately, and noticed I play a lot more on my neck pickup then the Duncan JB bridge (the single coil tone, IMO, is better for the sound I'm after). The pickup I currently have is the stock one that comes on the Kurt Cobain model (2012 year, black one). I dig the tone but I was wondering if there was any other suggestions that could get me a more Tele-ish sound (I know, I'll never get the ideal sound because of the scale length, bridge, wood, etc, but something pretty close), the stock Mustang neck one sounds pretty...well, dead (And I've heard other Mustangs as well, even compared to the Jaguar which is also a short-scale but is VERY bright). I'm looking for a "warmer" sound/

I put a 57/62 Strat pickup in mine, and it sounds great and plays well with the JB.
