So I have two different Classic Vibe teles. My 50's butterscotch blonde was so awesome out of the box I have decided to leave it bone stock. My 60's Custom was equally great, but it was missing something. I decided to turn it into a project guitar. So I went with all new internals, pots, switches, wires, etc... and installed an ObsidianWire Custom 4-way kit. I also replaced the stock pickups with a Cavalier Nashville Lion and Lion King set. Love those pups! All three standard positions are great but that 4th position with Neck and Bridge in Series just gives it a whole new dimension. I preferred the brass saddles that are on my 50's BSB so I installed a set on the 60's Custom but it lost some of that spank I like on the low E & A... so I replaced that saddle with an aluminum one which brought the spank back. It pairs well with the other two brass saddles. Getting the guitar used (though it was only a week old) allowed me to do all of those upgrades and come out about only $30 more than the price of the 60's Custom new so I'm very happy about that. I had Daniel Silva of Crazy Heart Leather do a custom pickguard for me in memory of my daughter, Arya, who passed a little over 3 years ago at only 5 months old. She had an undetected heart defect known as dilated cardiomyopathy. Essentially her heart was three times the size of normal and ultimately gave out. I thought it was a great way to honor her memory and I'll be thinking of her every time I pick up this guitar and play it. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It sounds as good as it looks and it looks as good as it sounds. That texture and detail is just sweet! He did such a great job!
