    Fender CuNiFe Wide Range Humbuckers

    I ordered a pair of these during Fender's 30% off accessories sale. I received them on Thursday and finally installed them today, along with a set of 1 meg pots. I can't get over how awesome they sound! Great with my Princeton Reverb clone and they really brought my Dr. Z amps to life! The Cure sounds great, the Monza sounds like a dirty old blues amp, and the Z Wreck Jr sounds unbelievably rich and complex.

    The guitar is a 2013 MiM Classic '72 Thinline Tele that I paid $350 for. It weighs under 6-1/2 pounds and is a lot of fun to play, especially now!



    Oddly, the new bridge and neck pickup are ambossed differently, though they both just came directly from Fender. It's hard to see in pics, and I'll probably forget about it over time.

    I’ve wondered about those pickups. Glad to hear you like them.

    I wish Telenator had managed to get his product popular enough to stay solvent - great pickups!

    I agree. Would these even exist if it wasn't for his efforts?

    I contacted Fender about the engraving being different on the bridge and neck pickups and they said it's supposed to be different. Odd. I just wanted to make sure there was nothing weird going on.

    Sure enough, I looked on Reverb and some of the ads for new American Vintage II Thinline Teles (that show a pic of the actual guitar that's for sale) have different engraving on the neck and bridge pickups. The images on Fender's site and ads with stock pics do not.
