Hi all. Brand new to the forum, and to T-type guitars. I’ve been drooling over a telecaster ever since high school. Now that I’m stuck at home for the foreseeable future, I broke down and picked up a reasonably priced, mint condition Peavey Reactor that came up on Craigslist. I’m really, very happy with the neck and the general build quality, but it just doesn’t sound quite right. I don’t have any point of reference, but it just doesn’t sound quite as... telecaster-y as I want it to. It sounds kinda muffled, like it’s missing some treble or presence or something. It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s just not all the way there. There’s not a whole lot of life. So I’m thinking I’ll start with a pickup swap. A few years back, I put a set of Wilde Microcoils in a free Squire strat, and my god, that thing sings now. So I’m a huge believer in Bill Lawrence. I figured a set of Keystones might be right for me, since people seem to describe them as “classic tele.” That sounds like a good starting place. But I’d like to hear your opinions. I was also thinking about a set of custom shop Texas Specials, as I like the slightly hot, kinda dirty, bluesy tele tones, but I don’t know if they are gonna retain enough treble. I play through a Peavey delta blues, which is very warm and bass heavy, to begin with. All I really know at this point is that I’m looking for “more tele character.” With the understanding that there is no one standardized telecaster sound, Do you think I’m heading in the right direction with the keystones? Also, how much of a role does the bridge itself play in the tele tone, and should I be thinking about other upgrades? Maybe replace the cheapo plastic nut? Thanks for any and all advice.
