Interesting. I bought a set of CS Blackguard pickups a about five years ago. They don't make them anymore. Great-sounding pickups. The pickups in my Broadcaster remind me of them. Seem very different that the CS Nocaster pickups; more open and "alive" sounding.They are made specially for this 70th Anniversary model and otherwise unavailable. Currently.
I'm curious about the advantages of this hybrid wire you chose. Please share your wisdom!
Hey all....so I've been doing some digging after watching the 70th Anniversary Custom Shop Broadcaster promo video with Mike Lewis at the Custom Shop....he states that they based this release from specs taken in the early 2010's of a Broadcaster that was in a private collection....they based the neck, electronics and most other specs of this reissue based on that unique example....Mike even mentions that the neck shape they're using..."1950's Blackguard" with a slightly narrower nut was based on this example....and also the 50/51 Blackguard pickups presumably were modeled after specs taken....so I went over to BlackguardLogs.com and think I may have found the guitar they took the specs from is 0027...https://blackguardlogs.com/guitars/detail/0027 Best I can tell it matches up visually but I wanted to get y'all's eyes to take a look and get your impressions....this is just part of my guitar obsession and not really a big deal but i think it cool to know exactly which guitar ours was "cloned" from.....here is the link to the youtube video and Mike starts talking about the specs taken around the 4:25 minute mark....thank y'all:
Lol I did sell it, I changed that post after I sold it to not get anyone's hopes up lol. It's on its way to its new owner.Funny, I received an email notification about this thread that said this, "I'm selling mine if anyone is looking for one!". I was going ask why you were selling; but it looks like you have changed your mind. I'm glad to hear.
