I don't think anyone who owns the Thinline has confirmed.

My guess is that the Warmouth neck will somehow fit, but the intonation will be way off so it will have to be readjusted. Now I wonder, ...

Boris, what makes you think they are not as good as the CV line?
I understand the pickups may not be great, but these can easily be upgraded.

Most of these words can also apply to connectors.

Soldering isn't always the best method. Otherwise you would also solder your guitar output to your cable and amp.

Even if there was a universal...

I don't own one but the Modern Player Tele Plus is supposed to have very nice fretwork.

But as Mark said, pots and switch will be cheap (pickup ring is plastic with some chrome imitation). Also, I...

What about protection to corrosion? Seems to me it's the main reason to use soldering instead of connectors.

Some very good tips in this thread.

As for the solderless system, well it looks like you still have to solder it to your circuit, so not suitable for a newbie

What does a dud sound like?

It would be really interesting if someone recorded a demo of a "dud" and posted it here. I suspect there would be wide range of opinions on tone quality.

Same thing when people describe a guitar...

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Don't modify your tele. As KevinB explained, it won't be easy and chances are you will completely butcher it.
It is much easier to buy a cheap Squier Classic Vibe...

The Am. Deluxe will give you a wider range of tones via the switching options. For that kind of price, it is really best to try before you buy.

The new 2012 American Standard Tele bridge pickup has a base plate (should be the same pickup as the baja). But the body now has a belly cut.

Ok got it.
I can't imagine fitting L500 inside P90 cavity without making the whole thing look ugly. I guess a custom pickguard would be necessary.

Just curious as it seems the Wilde branded pickups are mostly for Strat/Tele.

I am no expert but I think many would say this pickup sounds 'generic'.
I like to think of it as a cross between a Strat and Tele bridge pickup. Not bad if that's what you're after?

I think what most people call "hot" is less highs and stronger mids,more like a humbucker voicing. For single coils, it refers to overwound, higher inductance pickups.

I wouldn't go the dummy coil route, as it will change the tone of your pickup, which is what you liked in the first place.

Do you have a MIM standard or MIM Classic series?
