    Fender Twisted Tele bridge pickup or Fred Stuart Blackguard in a Nocaster?

    I realize these are very different, but have any of you all had experience with both and have a preference? Thanks for your help. - Ian

    Do I have Abigail Ybarra pickups in my 2001 Nocaster?

    My understanding is Abigail Ybarra pointed out that the 10K Nocaster pickup was not accurate and recommended the 7 or 8 k around 2000 or 2001.

    Do I have Abigail Ybarra pickups in my 2001 Nocaster?

    Absolutely! In fact, I will not be checking the pickups, but will assume she wound them. :D

    Do I have Abigail Ybarra pickups in my 2001 Nocaster?

    All, I have a 2001 Nocaster. Love it! I was reading on this site that Abigail Ybarra wound the pickups on the early Nocsters. Can I assume mine were wound by her? Do I need to pull the pickups to verify? BTW, pickups sound phenomenal.

    Spoke with Fred Stuart today!

    I was an active (very active) member member of the old TDP. I am still a big Tele lover and mostly lurk on this site. I own a 2001 Nocaster Relic which I am crazy about. A couple weeks ago I bought a 2014 Fred Stuart "Tele". This is a rare and exceptional guitar. Anyway, I reached out to Fred to...

    Anyone ever heard of Time Machine Nocasters having a "pancake" body?

    While searching old posts I came across this, "I have an under 100 SN "Cunetto". It's the best Tele I've ever played (well, there was this one Lentz... :D ). Anyhoo, it's a super guitar. I prefer the specs of these although I wish the neck profile was halfway in between this one and the Time...

    What type of pickups would be in a 2001 Nocaster? The hotter 10k bridge or lower 7+ bridge? Thanks.

    Barden Modern bridge pickup or Dimarzio Pre B1?

    Fat and thick, almost approaching a P90 at higher volumes. I've had a Pre B1 and regular Gatton Barden bridge, but not a Barden Modern.

    Disregarding price, Barden Neck Pickup or DiMarzio Twang King Neck and why?

    Disregarding price, Barden Neck Pickup or DiMarzio Twang King Neck and why?

    I want to switch out my Tele neck pickup and have narrowed it down to Barden neck pickup and DiMarzio Twang King neck pickup. Which would you choose and why? Thanks.

    RIP David Bowie

    RIP indeed. Great trivia story I'll share as well. Not sure the validity of the story, but regardless, its a good one. As you may or may not know, Bowie had one blue eye and one green eye. One eye also stayed permanently dilated, and the story I read was that the eye became that way as the...
