    Hi all. I recently purchased a 2012 American Standard Telecaster. My model was built prior to March. I was informed that the pre mid March 2012 models did not have the new pickups. If not what are the pickups that were used. I am assuming that they be the ones from the year before. Any help would be appreciated.

    Who is telling you this? I would assume that if it has the back contour it's the new model with all the new model specs. Otherwise it would make Fenders ad's false advertising. Shoot an email to fenders customer service. They should know.

    Actually, the plastic sheet over the pickguard did not indicate the new pickups in the description. And there was another 2012 one in the store that did. Plus I read this somewhere as well. No biggie, just curious.
