    Hey guys and gals! Quick question: can I drop a pair of Lindy Fralin Tele Blues Specials into a Mustang? Would they work just as good?

    I believe old Mustangs use Strat sized pickups. If that's the case, telecaster pickups would not fit.

    It should be noted, there have been many versions of the Mustang model with different pickups.

    Thanks. I decided to keep 'em in a Tele so I picked up a 90s peavey Tele model. very straight, flat neck and with the pickups it sounds awesome! Thanks.
