    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.

    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...

    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

    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!

    Took my 13 yo son to see Bruce and the E. Street Band last night. Great, great show! In some ways as good as the River tour back in the 80's, and maybe better than the show in Charlotte, NC, in maybe 1999??? Bruce seems looser in his advanced years... actually let the crowd "surf" him around...

How would this overdrive compare with a Les Paul Junior overdrive tone? Would the Bardens be unbearably...
