    I have the Blonde not the Butterscotch CV '50s Tele.
    The Twang King is on my short list. So many pickups, so little time.

    Thanks for explaining, I had no idea!
    Fender screwing loyal customers, how nice! Are the pickups with plastic leads even US made?

    I put these in a Tele I had. They were fantastic.
