    Fender's catalogue states that their Nocaster pickups had been redesigned to sound like the original early ones and that the bridge pickup is made of zinc. Anyone know when Fender redsigned the pups and switched to the zinc plates? I thought I heard that Nocaster pickups had been redesigned about 5 or 6 years ago, or is the zinc a new development to keep closer to original design? (I've got a 2001 Nocaster and don't want to take it apart to check the base plate.)
