Guys,

Which current replacement mini-HB sounds closest to the Gibson original, or should I rather purchase an original used if I get one cheap? Am thinking of replacing my SQ Tele's neck PU with one and hence the question. Thanks!

Gibson sells a replica of the original mini humbucker. It's Alnico II, vintage braided two wire, maple spacer and 6.4 K output.

Get an original which has not had the cover off.

If you can find an older one, grab it...
I have two with PAF stickers, they are superb. Sounds like fullsize PAF's but less bass
