Well....that may be well be the case. But I sure am digging this old vintage neck. Didn't really know how I would "bond" with it -- the 7 1/4 radius and vintage frets. It was "intriguing" at first. Now I find it to be exceptional. The small frets and the obvious curve create a playing board that translates all the nuances of my left hand into ......you know......sound. And it helps me play all those fancy chords I am always trying to learn. I like it. Don't do super bends at all, so it's just fine.You need some cheaper Tele's to learn on.
Thanks. One of the guitars has the bridge pickup pretty hot. I backed it off and did find the tone a little mellower and nicer. Still hot enough. Before, the bridge pickup was a little too loud for my tast compared to the neck pickup. It's a little more balanced now. I haven't figured out what that third screw is for. I'm afraid to mess with it until I know what it does. It's the screen right in the middle of the pickup at about the G string on the neck side of the bridge pickup. I am wondering if that adjusts the "yaw" of the pickup?
