    Factory-installed or dealer-installed?

    Ah Ha... Good riposte...
    I was thinking post-sales, as I'd rather suspect Fender/dealers would play catch-up on such a mod, perhaps I'm wrong?

    It was a *trick* question, because in late-1970 I "dealer-installed" CBS/Fender/Seth Lover WRHB's into Telecasters at Oxnard Music Store, where I moonlighted, using Fender-supplied installation instructions (page 7 of 8): https://msengers.home.xs4all.nl/download/TeleBigsbyConversion.pdf

    However, even BEFORE that, we "dealer-installed" mini-(Ephiphone)-humbuckers into Telecasters -- one at initial sales, but most were post-sales installations. And, obviously, these installations were not CBS/Fender sanctioned.

    Also, jazz guitarists, Ted Greene and Ed Bickert...both well-known Tele players.

    OK, thank you... and my mistake re the Q not being previously asked.
    I did try searching some relevant terms first.
