    That’s pretty sharp. Are those a “balanced” set, or all even winds?

    I don't know, I assume they are the same since it is a Fender Triple Tele and they are all supposed to be Nocaster pickups. I don't notice a big difference in output and they all sound good. I don't play it much because I don't like the small vintage frets. Someday I'll make a new neck for it.

    I got this Nash esquire today from Bend Guitar Den, Bend, Oregon. Lollar humbucker; sounds great.
