    Congrats! I have similar tuners with the pearloid buttons on my FCS Caballo. Is that a Lollar neck pickup?

    I think that's a tv jone starcaster neck pickup. I've been looking at those. How does it sound? How hot is it?

    It’s a FCS hand wound Loaded 51 nocaster. Bridge A3 slightly hotter than regular FCS and Neck is A5.

    Looks like a Starwood. I have one in my Nashville Deluxe. Added a 5-way, push/pull tone pot for 7 selections. I love the TVJones sound. Sweet and mellow to my ears, as opposed to what was there. I have it lower than the mid/bridge to balance out the output. The bridge/neck sounds really great too.
