Like the '50-'67 Teles, then?Actually, it's not.
Besides the ultra fat neck, there's a proprietary wiring scheme:
the 3 switch positions are 'deep bass' (extreme treble rolloff),
blend of neck and bridge (controlled by the tone knob in the
middle switch position),
and 'no-load' bridge (tone knob disabled in the rearmost switch
That's not the usual Tele setup of neck/both/bridge.
Really. Poor schmuck put a glass of whiskey on my super reverb. Next thing that hit him was being unable to eat.Sure! A strat would never take a glass like that....
Ouch!Really. Poor schmuck put a glass of whiskey on my super reverb. Next thing that hit him was being unable to eat.
Bad juju mess'n with a fellow's amp.
Course, the schmuck is me and the inability to eat is because that is where I set the glass down when the phone rang with a call from the physician treating me, advising me to get in to see him soon, then the why.
I forgot about it, the glass, and when I got home from hospital 10 days later, I was still rather ill. The whiskey had evaporated anyway...what a waste of good scotch.
Sorry, i misspoke.Like the '50-'67 Teles, then?
The one i had was a very early Fender Custom Shop relic version,Interestingly, mine (2008 NOS) was factory setup with standard tele wiring. An additional 3-way switch, with vintage spec wiring, is in a sealed bag in the case compartment.
Having tried the original vintage set-up on a friend's guitar, I'm happy to stick to modern wiring as installed.
No apology necessary. All groovy, here.Sorry, i misspoke.
It's been awhile since i've played a Nocaster, and i was conflating a few different things there.
This will explain the '50/'51 Broadcaster/Nocaster wiring scheme more fully:
Apologies again.Also called the “Broadcaster blend circuit,” this wiring is the transition circuit between the single-pickup Esquire and the Telecaster with its well-known dual-pickup configuration.www.premierguitar.com
It's a clamp marketed by Fender and it's to give the guitar more sustain. I put them on the Tele and 2 of my Strats. $18 each. Not sure if it does anything, but it's padded so it's not messing up the headstock.
