    Hi,
    Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the Vintera 50s modified Tele? My friend has just bought one and wants to change out the pickups. Due to lockdown being an issue, I can't do it for him. I've tried explaining it on the phone, and tried finding anything online, but can't seem to find anything.
    He has some Seymour Duncan's he wants to put in. Would a pic of the the Baja Schematics be good enough? Thanks in advance.

    Not diagram, but I have a bunch of fotos which shows where the wires should be connected. Should that be of any help?

    Edit: pics are from 50’s Vintera mod.

    That would be great thanks. I have the 60s, but not sure if the 50s is different.

    That's terrific, thank you very much. That's the same as my 60s. Really appreciate you doing this.

    I believe that it should be the same as the Classic Player Baja.

    I have a Vintera 60s Modified and instead of it having the advertised "hot" pickups it actually has vintage output, Neck = 7.21K Bridge = 6.66K. Checked with Fender on it and no real help from them. I'm going to replace the bridge pickup.

    Yes, I changed mine out for PV64s. The Vintera so called hot ones, sounded muddy as hell, even after much adjustment.
