Anybody out there rockin' the texas special tele set, and if so can they cover bakersfield blues twang, tia...

          On the cheaps you can get the Tonerider Hot Classics for Tele.  Very nice pickups, but not what I was looking for because I was looking for much more volume/more beef/less twang/P90ish.  I would describe the Toneriders as having slightly hotter than average output, still with plenty of twang.  Really well made, though.
