    Twisted tele pups

    Which Specs would you choose? - Two similar CS Teles

    I know this is old. I wanted to comment on the pickups. The OP probably made up his mind. I have a WW10 spec.Tele with the Josefina Twisted pickups. Those pickups are underwound and do not have as much output as the other custom shop versions.

    Recommendations for Overdrives.

    Did you know the EXH is actually a clone of an 808? Analogman helped with it for EXH. Matthews wanted a pedal that he did not have to put extra money into R&D. Helped keep the cost down. Not too bad for only 70 bucks

    What is this 1979 strat worth?

    I would want to see a closeup of the bridge and those bare marks on the body. I was thinking that the body might be oversprayed. Got to see better pictures. under the guard as well. Back of the neck and neck pocket. Its possible the nut was replaced. It looks like the high E string is on the...
