Hi Forum! I'm trying to understand the relative tonal options available to me through the Fender custom shop. I will be appointing a few (likely 2) teles (a thinline and a black guard) at some point, and I already have on hand 2 Fender bridge pickups: a Broadcaster (Baja pull) and an Original Vintage. I have 2 questions for you tonal titans: 1) How does the Nocaster bridge pickup compare to what I already have? What am I missing out on by not having one? 2) What neck pickups should I be looking at for black guard tele tones? I know that I do not want the Baja bridge companion (Twisted Tele) as I am looking for something more "authentic" sounding (i.e., I have a strat for stratty tones). I have read that the texas special neck pickup makes for a good companion to the OV, and I've also read that the Baja Broadcaster is essentially a Texas Special (can't vouch for that claim though). That's as far as I've gotten in my thinking. I don't know whether there is an official Broadcaster companion, other than the Twisted Tele (what did they put in the neck of the CS Broadcaster guitar? Listings are vague...). And, I'm having a hard time contextualizing the OV neck pickup relative to other options. In terms of what tone I'm hoping to achieve... that's a bit tricky, as I like both the spanky, cluckin' cleans and the classic rock (ala Page) overdriven tele tones (which may not be 100% compatible with one another). But, overall, I'm looking for something that sounds traditional. Like a '52. Doesn't have to be exact. And, please limit discussion to Fender brand options; just my preference. Thanks in advance for your sage wisdom, and cluck on!
