    I have to admit i am loving the neck pickup on my recently aquired 2004. For clean its fantastic.
    I believe a Mex vintage 50?.
    As for the Bridge i have a new pickup on the way.
    For now all my others will have to wait their turn.

    I have a 2003 Hwy One and agree the neck pickup is a good one. The bridge I found to be too thin sounding. I'm almost 100% positive the Mexican 50's Classic has the exact same set.

    I’ve always loved the Hwy1 pickups in both Tele’s and Strats. Excellent fender production models all around.

    Loved the pups in my 2007 model (sitting with the pooch in my avatar), but I believe that they were different than some earlier models, hot A3s.

    I am a fan of the HWY 1 neck pickup.

    Every once in a while I'll start checking out alternatives for no real reason, like Charlie Christians, mini-humbuckers or P-90s. They all sound good, but at the end of it I just decide I have no desire to swap it with anything else.

    Is the bridge the same as the Road Worn 50's?

    Good question. That I'm not sure of. Hopefully someone will chime in with some info.

    Fitted a Bareknuckle Cobra T today in the bridge, very progressive and covers all territory.
    Only played through my Boogie thus far.

    The neck pickup on the AmStds in the 2000s was AWESOME but I hated the bridge pup. Rumpel to the rescue....
