1 Jimbodiddley 6 days ago I've had this Squier Classic Vibe 60s Tele (Crafted in China) for a few years now, and I've enjoyed playing it from Day 1. After the switch broke, I installed a pre-wired 4-way switch assembly with CTS pots. Lovely sounds. I had bought it assuming I would swap out the pickups one day, but I can't really complain too much about the stock set. The Bridge pup was perhaps a little thin-sounding, but really not bad. I think the CTS pots may have helped. But not too long ago, I decided to replace the steel saddles with brass, and, I figured, while I was at it, why not try some new pickups. I had been curious to try a more strat-like neck pickup. So I settled on Lollars - the bridge is a J-Street, and the neck is a Royal T. Well, that Royal T is sure stratty, indeed. And the J-Street is wonderfully Tele-spanky, a little more full-bodied perhaps, and not as trebly as many Tele bridge pups. Initially I was a little disappointed that the combined positions – 2 & 4 – didn't seem to sound as good as with the stock pickups. But after some very careful height adjustment, now they're sounding very good in those positions. A little different than what I was used to, but still great sounds. Not sure how much difference the brass bridge saddles bring to the equation, but I imagine they help to some degree.
