    Love my Vintera 50s Tele and think the stock pickups are pretty good. However, I’m considering installing a 4-way switch and Bootstrap Pretzels. I’ve done this mod already to a Squier Bullet Tele and love the tone I’m getting with that guitar and configuration. Curious if anyone has swapped out the stock pickups in their Vintera, and if so, what did you go with?

    I've mentioned before, I have a Bootstrap Pretzel in bridge on both my Teles.....but the Bootstrap Palo Duro in the neck positions. Perfect combination IMHO. ;)

    .

    Have you exhausted all the pickup height and tip bass/treble settings on your Vintera?
    (adjust pickups first, swap pots 'n caps second, last swap pickups and go back to adjusting)

    Start with installing the 4-way first and go from there.

    I just placed on order for a Pretzel set for my purple road worn tele. The tex mex are fine, but Bootstraps are killer pickups.
