    Hey everybody,

    I'm a longtime Tele fan/owner and have been reading the forum without participating for far too long. I just wanted to say my hellos and thank everybody for all of the valuable information. I'm currently playing a 2011 American Standard Tele and hope to pick up an American Original '50s model fairly soon.

    Thanks everyone! Ive thought about replacing the bridge with a Glendale but I'm on the fence as to whether or not it's necessary. I love the neck pickup on these American Standards but I might swap the bridge pickup. If I do, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm sort of looking for Luther Perkins or Don Rich tones (so first I'll need their hands and skill).

    There is a forum Just Pickups or a Telecaster forum where you might ask that question and sit back for 250 enthusiastic replies! I never thought about changing pickups on my 1994 52 reissue.
