It looks like the way I had my Ric 12 for a while; three big fat lower strings and three unison pairs for the treble courses. It didn't sound like a classic 12-string because there aren't any octave pairs but it did sound really full. It should sound great on a Tele!

Two Ideas.

Jack White's Triple jet has a middle pickup that's hooked up to an built in MXR boost. It's basically instant overdrive when he switches to the pickup.

Or you could go something funky like a Fernandez Sustainer. You know, just to be that guy.
see I'm now thinking more along the lines of a Bilt Revelator style off center middle pickup... a lipstick or a Jag pickup... hmmmm

Lipstick! definately. that would give you some cool options, soundwise. also made me think of this:

Jaguar in the middle of two jazzies always looks good I think; and that is the sweet spot on a bass VI, so perhaps it would be magical.

Well I think I'd need a higher output lipstick to match up with the way I have my JM pickups wound. Prob be easier to get a Jag pickup to match... which ever I can get hold of first will most likely end up in the guitar!

i made this...

used to be a normal standard tele. i don't like baseball necks, so i put on an 80s MIJ squier strat neck.
and then added the bigsby. it was a MONSTER, yessir.

but i realized, again, that i don't really get along with teles ( :blush: ) and sold it.
this neck is now on my '72 jazzmaster, btw.

i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

I think that pickup is actually placed under a harmonic, hence the weird position. Cool idea either way 8)
