    I've got a frailin P-90 in the bridge, an old lipstick in the middle position and a rumpelstilskin white rope with nickel cover in in the neck position. For the record the rumpelstilskin pickup is unbelievably good. Hand wound with killer vintage tone. It sings.

    - Joe Bardens
    - Chandler Super 60s
    - SD Little 59 (b) / Hot Tele Rhythm (n)
    - SD Alnico 2 Pro (b) / SD Five-Two (n)

    Whatever comes in the Classic 60s Tele.. No need for anything else they got some growl that hasn't let me down yet. Fender Ensenada did a nice job on these.

    Lollar Specials and N3 Noiseless on the shelf. Really need something to put the Lollars in.
    Got my eye on:

    My Danocaster blackguard has a set of Budz and I couldn't be happier with them.

    The stock MIM pickups are still in my Tele. They give me what I want, so I haven't even looked at changing them. My other guitars, however...

    So, how does that gold foil sound in the neck? Seriously, I'm just looking for an excuse.
