Would it be relatively easy to modify a fender standard tele to have a humbucker in the bridge? I know i'd probably need to buy a new bridge since it's a metal plate and then i'd need to do some routing or are there any tele's that already have a humbucker in the bridge that are around the same price as the standard mexis ?

i believe some are already fitted with a humbucker, called a twangbucker, that is angled like the bridge pup on a strat. i think youd need a new bridge if it doesnt already have that hole...

Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

not really

american standards $999+

his

$949

Its still pricey for me, but its not in the thousands so I wouldn't say its too badly priced.

Why a humbucker in the bridge? It's basically not even a Tele anymore, after that...


Well I was going to put in the dually red red lace sensor pickups like in the tele pluses which are hard to find now.

i think hes goin for tele feel with bucker warmth, but i agree completely. a tele aint a tele without that pup.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
