    After playing a wide variety of single coil guitars, I can totally see why. These vintage noiseless are not even as bright as the Texas Specials, which I found to be ice-to-the-eyeballs bright.

    I guess that's why I've always liked the Telecaster bridge pickup. It can do the classic rock thing (see Zeppelin, Led), the country thing, and just about everything in between. I've always considered it to be a single coil with an attitude problem

    Talked over the purchase with my wife. Unless something changes my mind in the next 24 hours, I'm going to have a new Tele at home.

    It's an extremely easy modification, just one little jumper on the 5-way switch. 95% of the effort is taking the pickguard off the guitar to get at the underside of the switch!
