    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...

    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.

    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...

    Gatton and Buchanan- - Who's next?

    I would also add Bill Hullett and Reggie Young to this list. I think their work speaks for itself.

    Gone Country Nashville Deluxe

    I've have a mint one in Candy Apple Red loaded with Joe Barden pickups which I actually have for sale in the TDPRI classifieds. It's a super guitar, but I have a "one in, one out" rule and am a one guitar guy. Contact me if you're interested.

    Tonepros TPKF6B Users - Ever have issues with post height?

    I measured the height of the posts on the Tonepros TPKF6B and they are taller than the Ping or Gotoh (which are the same). Has anyone ever had tuning issues with them because of this on their Teles?

    Nashville tuners question

    Is there any issue with post height on the Tonepros? The TonePros appear to be slightly taller than the Gotoh's or Ping. Didn't know if this could negatively affect tuning. Thanks.

    Nashville tuners question

    All, I have a 2002 Nashville MIM Nashville Tele and want to change out the tuners (purely for cosmetic reasons - nickel to chrome. I bought a set of Tonepros TPKF6B-C and they were too big (reportedly they are 10 mm), so I bought a set of Gotoh tuners from Warmoth (the website states they are...

    Springsteen rocks Raleigh, NC!

    I'm not a huge Springsteen fan, but I will give credit where credit is due. For the younger folks, you may or may not know that Springsteen is the only artist to appear on the cover of Newsweek and Time in the same week... after the release of Born To Run.

    Springsteen rocks Raleigh, NC!

    Don't remember seeing the double humbucker guitar, no pics, and every song was great! Didn't do Candy's Room, Fade Away or the River. I really enjoyed Because the Night, Brilliant Disguise, Born To Run (lights up in the arena), Ghost of Tom Joad duet with Tom Morello, and Thunder Road.
