I still have friends who say "dummfu%ker" pickups when speaking to me as that was the reference I used for years and years. So that's my background. The only humbuckers I like are WRHB and Gretsch Filtertrons; and I like them both a lot.They both have subtlety and breathe unlike a diMarzio or some such dummfu%ker. So much do I like WRHB, that I already have two of the newly released WRB from Fender sitting in wait for a Tele Deluxe addition to the stable whose particulars will depend on whether and when Fender releases and AO Tele Deluxe soon as it has the AO Tele Custom. My brother has the new AO 70s Tele Custom and it is his favorite guitar (and he has two 50s Teles, etc). I'd buy a new one too if I fidn't already have my 1975. I find my mid 70s Tele Custom to be one of if not the most versatile guitars I own--the single coil squeals with a distortion box if not managed but the WRHB is just great. It's great both in my studio and live, which is not the case with a fair few of my guitars. The greatest thing CBS ever did was the WRHB and 70s Tele Custom IMHO. Accept no imitations!
