    Why? Because they’re rusted and 60 years old?

    Will it turn my Telecaster into an authentic 1960s model?
    No doubt that the tonal improvements will be incredible!

    I can't begin to guess why, but those corners sure look sharp.

    Probably for a Roland synth pickup.

    Rare to see a Roland pickup cut into a '60s Tele bridge, so yeah one of a kind even!

    Pass.
    An aftermarket Product would suffice over that thing.

    I have one of those.
    Extra holes were drilled to fit a 70's maxon pickup,
    And holes drilled for a top loader body.
    Have to really be looking to notice it,
    And no sharp edges,
    So i use it on a partscaster.

    maxon pickup and all.

    About the only thing I could think of to use that thing for is to scrape carbuncles off of your rear end. Maybe not the real bad ones, just the little ones.
