Indulge me, if you will. My incredible fiance got me a custom shop double esquire earlier this year, and I absolutely love it. It has "loaded" nocaster pickups in it, including an uncovered neck pickup, which is really cool. The guitar is awesome and is my number one. Before that guitar, my baja was my number one, which also has a nocaster (flat pole piece) style bridge pickup. I still like the baja, but it's mainly just a backup these days. Because both guitars have the same "style" bridge pickup, I was thinking of changing the baja to staggered pole bridge pickup. This idea came to me after playing another custom shop 60s style tele at my local shop. After playing it, I thought "wow this is so different sounding than the flat pole piece sound." Both style guitars can twang, but my double esquire definitely has a meatier, throatier tone on the bridge. The lows on the double esquire are massive and tight...I love it. The 60s style tele I played different had a more "strident", perhaps less forgiving, sound - which I also love. I guess it had more "sizzle." I was thinking that putting something different in the baja would give me some more versatility in my arsenal. I've had all sorts of zaney ideas..install a b-bener, maybe a charlie christian in the neck...I don't know...all first world problems. I feel lucky to have two teles that I enjoy. I will say that the baja twisted tele neck pickup is quite enjoyable...gets me in strat territory....and I'm one of the few that does enjoy the S-1 switching. The out of phase sound is very usable if I'm playing some Dead tunes or doing some certain types of blues. That said, I'm thinking that a bridge pickup swap might be a nice place to dabble...specifically, installing a staggered pole piece pickup. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that could really change the sound, and add some significant "sizzle" to the baja bridge sound, which I've always found to be serviceable, but not particularly memorable. I play a lot of traditional country - chet, jimmy bryant, redd volkaert, but I genre hop quite a bit...you get the idea. If you've read this far, I commend you and apologize for my ramblings. Any suggestions are much appreciated! Happy playing!
