    What are some good sound examples of the traditional Telecaster middle (both pickups) setting?
    I've read that the Baja won't do this so good becuase the neck pickup is too Stratty, so I'm curious what I'm missing.......

    This always sounded like a classic Tele with both pickups to me:

    Kinda geeky of me [but I used to play this album a bunch when commuting].
    RF's in the 2-pickup position of his Tele when he start his solo at 2:16, then he flips to the bridge at 3:02.



    A great sound for funk scratchin' too [think Prince].
