    I may have a stock neck pickup lying around Tulip, I'll take a look. If I do and you want it I'll trade you something for it.

    I found the pickup, it looks exactly like what Mike (Tele Savalas) said.



    Happy to trade you something for it. I would caution (if you don't already know) that with the vintage wiring scheme it's going to sound like a horrible substitute for a bass guitar and that's exactly what it was designed to do, it's awful... but if you want that Tele original it's the one. The wiring mod makes it a lot more usable and even nice when used right, but still really limited IMO. Let me know...

    I'm not sure I'd give ya a buck fiddy for that one!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Ha ha yeah I know... but there's a reason it's not in my guitar, and there's a reason Tulip's has been changed somewhere along the line as you well know and noted.

    If he's concerned about the originality I can help him out a bit but looking back through the thread it appears both pickups have been swapped. It was an easy decision for me since my guitar has a ton of mods on it, but the way I see it there are a zillion 52 RI's out there so the extent that it's collectible if it's not a real '52 (or maybe an '82) is really pushing it. I feel bad the guy bought what was represented as an original guitar and obviously isn't, but it's probably for the best.

    Sad to see a good pickup being falsely denigrated.
