    I got a 50s mod vintera last month, its a bit 'noisier' than my other tele, I'm guessing because of the pickups. What pickups are good to put in this type of guitar or does it not matter? I was looking at the seymour duncan antiquities but my knowledge quite limited as have never changed a guitar before!

    If noise is bothering you, Antiquities, while great pickups, will still give you hum, as they are single coil pickups. You might look into noiseless options if hum bothers you. The Vintage Stack set has about as close as you can get to a great Tele tone while being noiseless.

    Fender OV pups. I replaced the stock TT/BC combo on my Baja with it. So much better.
