I've been considering a 72 Custom for a while and the recent thread here on WRHB's has got me thinking about it again. I hear that the necks are nice and the prospect of a humbucker and a single coil with separate volume and tone controls gets my interest. I'm kind of kicking myself for missing the blowout on the AVRI's some months ago. The prospect of possibly having to replace or mod the stock WRHB probably was a factor in my hesitation, not much time for projects. Have heard good things about Fender's 2nd version though. I have been leaning towards a used MIM version and then assuming I don't like the pickup going from there with a Telenator mod or one of his own versions, a Curtis Novak or Creamery (the thread currently running speaks highly of that version) or maybe an original if I can find one. Getting a used MIM allows me to put some $ into the WRHB. So I have a few questions: What is the stock bridge pickup like on these? OK as is for the most part? I have a 52 Hot Rod already which I like a lot, would a 72 Custom be kind of redundant? I love to blend the pickups on my Gibson types with dual tone and vol controls and I kind of miss that with the Hot Rod. Any other discussion on the 72 Custom is welcome, some pictures would be cool as well..
