    Hey y'all,

    Happy Monday. I am new to the forum and in the process of conceptualizing a Telecaster build from scratch. As far as pickups are concerned, i love the Twisted pups, particularly for the neck position.

    1. Has anyone here been able to compare the regular CS Twisted Tele pups with the Josefina Handwound Twisted Tele pups? Would love to hear your impressions on differences (besides the $ tag of course)

    2. What are your thoughts (if any) on the Fender Blackguard Tele pups?

    3. I am also considering doing a Twisted/neck pup and Nocaster/Bridge combo. Thoughts?

    (I play mostly blues and some classic rock stuff..Stones, Led Zep, ZZ Top)

    Many, many Thanks!

    I'm watching this thread, as I'm considering pulling the Broadcaster bridge pickup in my Baja 50s and trying the CS '51 Nocaster in that position. Just because.
