My Nashville Tele came with Tex-Mex pups. I took them out. Overly shrill sounding to my ears, but each to their own for what sounds good for each person's application. I'm also not a fan of plastic bobbins vs fiber. However, many if not most of the American Standards had them for decades (though I don't particularly prefer those pups either). If you can't return them, then you should at least try them.
