Default PRS Pickups in a Tele?

Will this PRS 59/09 pickup fit in the bridge position of my Tele? It doesn't come with a pickup ring, and I don't know if it is a standard size humbucker.

My guitar: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender/U...tric-Guitar.gc

PRS Pickup: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/5909Treb

Thanks!

I would take a chance on it, but be prepared to alter the pickup ring a bit if necessary.

EDIT You could always give Sweetwater a call, or email them. They have a reputation for being helpful.

I beleive that the PRS hummers are standard size to most all humbuckers. The rings are different than Gibby style though. They are very thin and have a given slant to them. It should probably fit into the cavity and ring holes of a tele.
