Right on. Mine is from 1977. I installed a Fralin Broadcaster pickup set, and a MSSC harness, and Shaller tuners.A tele can be as versatile as you want/need it to be, even with just the standard two single-coil pickup configuration. My #1 tele is wired with a Super 5-way switch, which adds the fatter, more humbucker-like N+B in series and the super honky, "old timey" sounding N+B in series out-of-phase. I also had the bridge pup wound with a coil-tap boost that works off a push/pull on the tone pot, which tacks on a little more than an Ohm and is perfect for solos.
Big-time secret weapons, but it still looks like a classic butterscotch blackguard (aside from a few personal aesthetic tweaks).

That’s just a good ole live ripper from Pages with the Tele....one of my favorite vids!! Glad y’all liked it,brother!Never saw this! Thanks bp!!!!!! Now that's what I'm talkin bout!
Yeah, I want both. I need to finish my Tele before... I start a Strat (say that 10 times fast) LOL. If FreddyG lived closer, I'd have him tweak it to perfection. But shipping quotes are over $80 each way with adequate insurance. Freddy is worth every penny, but shipping hurts! Freddy.... Move closer!That’s just a good ole live ripper from Pages with the Tele....one of my favorite vids!! Glad y’all liked it,brother!
Ya know,if it was me, I think I would like a good Tele first. I had a strat back in the 90s and I can wait on another one. However,those EJ strats are just really damn good guitars,so,Yaaaa, I want both.
Damn!! Ain’t that a beauty!!!??!!!
