    What would you decide?
    I own a 2008 custom shop 60’s Stratocaster “relic”.
    It is a wonderful guitar.
    However the slim 60's “C” Neck, and the icepick bridge pup is more and more annoying to me.
    For the last 4 years the guitar gets less and less playing time

    The options are:
    Replace the bridge pup with a Lollar special S Pup, and wait until my dream guitar shows up. "72 tele custom (Custom shop edition)".

    Second option, go to the Bill Nash reseller and order a Black TC72, 72 custom style with Lollars.
    I own two other great sounding guitars. (Les paul and a Tele).
    So there is no real need to sell or trade my Strat.

    I just like the Tele 72 custom a lot more.

    If your not playing it because the neck is to thin a pickup swap really won't fix it. I've got 3 customs so my mine is made up already.. Think I'd go for a Danocaster before a Nash but that's more because I can order direct from the builder.
