So I've got a Baja tele, used, at a good price, but really just don't like the blonde paintjob. So I was thinking about taking off the neck, pups and electrics and putting them on a sunburst body of some kind. However, I've come across a HWY1 body, fully loaded, sans neck, and was considering just sticking my Baja neck on there and be done with it. I'm not a recording musician, I'm not super-picky about my tone and don't really play a particular style, although Anna Calvi's tone did get me into telecaster's, no idea which model she uses. I've tried linking a good youtube clip but every way I try it won't work, but it's this one here. But what's the real difference between the tones of these two tele's pickups? Baring in mind I don't really use the "S1" modes, and I do like the standard parallel position for both pups. Anyway, I've asked this on another forum and just end up getting generic, knee-jerk, possibly uninformed; "Baja pickups are better" type answers so I figured this would be the best place to post for a more objective, or at least useful response. Also, oddly enough this HWY1 body seems to have the same S1 switching as the baja, which I didn't know existed. So what's the deal with that? Any more useful than than the Baja version? Thanks.
