So I have this lovely 2017 Roasted Ash Tele which has American Vintage 52 pickups. My friend gave me his 2007 Fender American Vintage 62 Reissue Custom Telecaster - a beautiful green. (he gave it to me cause he owes me a boatload of cash.... so its almost ok) I strung them with the same strings and wow does the 62 have more clarity and bite and depth. Is this because the pickups are "custom shop" aka WAY BETTER? is this a characteristic of the 52 vs 62 pickups? This makes me want to upgrade my 52 pickups to something else. Or maybe I'm just looking at it wrong and there is a benefit / quality I am missing in the 52's and I should like them for what they are? ----------------- to further confound it I was hoping to have my 52 strung with flat wounds.... I think given they are muddier and less clear pickups than the 62 that would be a disaster. all thoughts welcome and appreciated!
