Hi all I've just sent payment for a (supposedly) mint condition 2011 "Telebration" hot rod 52 in butterscotch blonde. Its the one with the Duncan '59 in the neck. As per my username, I've previously been a "strat guy" but I had to have a tele. This model appeals to me based on the large U neck coupled with a more modern 9.5" fretboard radius. Plus nitro finish and vintage good looks of course! I got a reasonable price too. So my question is- the spec sheet says: Pickup Switching: 3-Position Blade Position 1. Bridge Pickup Position 2. Neck Pickup with Tone Control (Bright Vintage Circuit) Position 3. Neck Pickup with No Tone Control (Dark Vintage Circuit) I had sort of assumed that the middle position would be a combination of the two pickups in parallel rather than a modified neck pickup setting. I'm mainly looking for a Keith Richards tone with this tele (It'll probably stay in open G most of the time) and rumour has it he uses both pickups together a lot. Would you guys suggest I mod the tele so the middle position is both pups in parallel for a Stones tone? Also, if I do that mod do I keep Position 3 as neck pup with or without the tone control (ie dark vintage circuit)? Thanks for the advice!
