TST-50 needs warm, FAT vintage tone with a nice grind in the pickup department. Anyone got any ideas... ???!

So far these are my initial thoughts;

Fralin Vintage hots
Slider handwound '59's from original parts
Chevalier Pickups
Lollar Vintage Blondes
Bare Knuckle Mothers Milk
Fat 50's
CS 54
Wolftone Flashback
Rumpelstiltskin Gypsy
Seymour Antiquity II Surfer

HELP. Want to get to something that works well without trying all these if possible and also have some old 1950's Fender and a 1965 Fender original hanging here somewhere. Plus some old Mustang pickups from '64 or there abouts. Any suggestions or pointers greatfully acknowledged and received.
Am trying to get warm, FAT blues machine sympathetic to Hendrix licks with a nice distortion (have got original wax capacitor and great amps and speakers, i.e. original '69 Plexi, Brownface 6g6-A Bassman both with alnico cabs, original '58 deluxe etc.)

Cheers,

Mike Bloomfield
