What's your goal? Hot rails are high output stuff. There's a little '59, medium output, scooped mid, PAF sounding pickup. those are Seymour Duncan's take on single coil sized pickups for bridge position in a Tele. Only one I've EVER tried was DiMarzio's "Chopper" (DP384) and I was very pleased with it. I wanted something that didn't promote "twang". Nice even EQ as well.

I know you stated humbucker, but I gotta add that their best non-humbucker type of Tele bridge without "twang" is their "Pre B-1" (DP112)! Very smooth an' even EQ I might add. It's June 18th, 2017 and I know I'm late, but I been REAL busy. ::)

Thank you Zag, I'm not after any particular sound, I'm just thinking reduced the noise and less "shriekness".

If you're just wanting to deal with th' bridge pickup, then I highly recommend that Dimarzio Pre B-1 (DP112) pick up. It's not "shrill" and thin sounding. I has good "body" to it. Sounds like I'm talkin' about "wine" don't it  ;D ? "But seriously folks", if it's noise (an' maybe hum) you're primarily concerned about, you might wanna consider a set of noiseless pickups. I've only dealt with Fender's Vintage Noiseless pickups an' I really like those. No frills, just straight up smooth ;) !
