    I heated up the Solderiron and put this long forgotten pickup into my strat. It sounds really good. 80DFF310-C1E2-4363-8597-30A07889D01D.jpeg 7C6C4498-DACB-43F3-B280-80A4D116F76E.jpeg

    This looks very interesting. Can you give us a bit more details?
    Is that quarter pounder in the neck position?
    What is the bridge pickup?
    What is the story behind holes behind the bridge?

    The holes: telecaster pickup
    The pickup is a twangbanger.
    Here is a closer look: 7D17075E-BB1D-441D-BC05-1EE9530D75AF.jpeg

    Hah! I did the exact same thing about 7 yrs ago. I put it in my 03 Squier Standard. I don't know if it's all that Tele like but it beats the pup that was in there. I actually like the neck and mid pup that came with it. They've got a lot of growl in a SRV kinda way.

    It's laying next to my fully stock 2010 Am St.

    I like that blue one! You need that Tele bridge to get the Tele sound.

    I tried that, and was kind of disappointed. I was in the process of mounting the bridge pickup to the floor of the rout I'd modded. I need to get back and finish that project - the lacquer has got to be rock hard by now!

    Got a Twangbanger in my Strat right now. The leftover Strat pickup is going in the neck slot of my #2 Tele partscaster.

    Twangbanger sounds excellent.

    Nice!

    I gave idea that a “go” myself.

    Three Tele bridge pickups in a Strat - sounds fantastic in all positions, as you would expect! Switch wired to combine neck and bridge pickups, like a Tele middle position.

    Twamgbangers do a good job. Deck the trem and pick a little closer to the bridge, and it does a great tele impersonation

    Oh I know of him for sure!! Top notch.
    I was friends with him on Facebook until I kind of stopped using it.

    He's a fantastic guitarist too, isn't he?
