I have & love both,but the 52 tele is my best guitar,it’s so responsive unplugged & sounds even better plugged in,it still has the original wiring so no combination of both pickups,although you can get that combo by sticking the switch in between the positions like on a strat with a 3 way.I have contemplated many times to get the mod done but I am too reluctant just in case it takes something away from the tone of the guitar as it is outstanding as it is.

Lovely trio you have there but seeing it reminds me of one of my personal quirks...

Looking at those three Telecasters, to me the one with the Rosewood 'board looks by far the most attractive. Especially with a light colored body and 'guard Rosewood looks perfect.

But every time I play on a Rosewood fretboard I find myself wishing it were maple. Crazy, I know.

At any rate, wouldn't turn down a chance to play any of those three, right there. Nice.

I have 2 Partscaster T's and a 1994 Anniversary 1954 Partscaster S/ Stratocaster Reissue (American made). The Strat is newer (just bought last month), so it's getting more attention at this time. Select Ash and nitro (Teles are the same), just can't beat it with a stick.

The new JBE/Barden pickups sound really nice. The Wilkie/Gotoh VSVG is outstanding.

Nothing wrong with your opinion, nothing at all. In fact I’m with you.
Personally, I wouldn’t have used the term “cork sniffers” to describe people who want something special and different.
YMMV.

I don’t know any cork sniffers. I do know people who like fine wines and say they can tell the differences between them.

I myself prefer beer, but I don’t mind wine people or people who love great guitars.
