I cannot see a problem with my neck pickup...
I have been playing Telecasters for years.
My biggest pet peeve is that I can play masterfully set after set, and look really cool with my Tele, but the hot chicks only approach me on breaks to ask for the drummer's telephone number.
What gets on your last nerve with a Tele....for me it’s freaking neck pickup screws....like how many times are you gonna move the height of your neck pickup....set it and go...while adjusting simply remove the pick guard.... neck pickup screws are freakin ugly....js
I get you, but I prefer them if I've reversed the control plate, gives me a larger thing to aim for.
