I finally took apart my Swampcaster last night and installed the Nordstrand....little did I know that the pickup in the Tele was actually a Fender Custom Shop pickup.
The pickup that was in it was very nice, but it had too much highs. I have my Tele tuned to Open C and I use a lot of open notes, especially on the high strings and with the Fender pickup they sometimes ring out Too much. In comes the Nordstrand....wow. THIS is a fucking tele pickup! Its got a bit more of that tele "quack", more mids, and less high end. When I dig into the open high strings during some of my riffs, its just enough high end now, no overbearing high strings ringing out anymore.
