This is something that I have not been able to find an answer for in 20 years. The problem is: you need 250K pots for the bridge pickup, and 500K for the humbucker. If you leave the 250K pot in, the humbucker doesn't sound really good, but if you change to 500K the bridge pickup starts to sound icy/trebly.
I have had two Tele's with a humbucker in the neck, and sincerely, I just never liked it. It always sounded way too muddy and it totally overpowers the bridge pickup. Apperently it works for Keith, so maybe his tech solved the problem with the pots, but I don't know how.
