    Default Custom Shop '53 Tapped Tele bridge pickup in a Fender '52 Hot Rod Telecaster

    Hi. I thought I'd share with you a clip I made of a Fender American Vintage '52 Hot Rod Telecaster with a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop '53 Tapped Tele bridge pickup. The original bridge pickup was a bit too hot for my taste and the '53 Tapped Tele bridge pickup sounds really good in this guitar and matches the Duncan neck humbucker perfectly. The original pots were 375k but I changed them to 250k.
