My favorite guitar is my friend's 1973 telecaster deluxe, which I have the good fortune to be babysitting while said friend is in China. The neck on it is absolutely perfect for me. I was going around and around about how to clone this guitar. In lieu of plunking down $2.5 to $3.5K for another '73 deluxe, some folks around here persuaded me to first try buying a MIM '72 deluxe reissue and upgrade the electronics. So I went to my local guitar-o-rama today and tried out a few of their '72 deluxe reissues, and one of them really got close to the feel of my friend's '73, so I bought it. (The three different '72 reissues I tried out all had noticeably different weights, neck feels, and tones, so I'm glad that I was able to try out a few rather than ordering one online and hoping for the best.) Although the electronics on the one I bought sounded the best of the three I tried, I imagine that I will get some even better tone if I do go ahead and upgrade the electronics. So, what is the currently available pickup that most closely resembles the tones of the Seth Lover wide range pickups found on these early 70's deluxes? If such an animal doesn't exist, what pickup would get the closest? Every once in awhile the originals spring up on ebay, but for some pretty crazy prices (like $400+ EACH!!!) I'd like to find something currently available that goes for under $300 a pair.
