Hi, I tried out the 2012 Am. Std. tele over the weekend. I own last year's model. I was disapointed with the sound of the new custom shop pickups they have in there. I think whatever nameless pickups that were in last year's model sound better, esp in the neck. I was playing through my amp, but at the store, so room acoustics, setup, etc, could have been a factor. What's been the sentiment regarding the changes over last year?
