I purchased this because I was tiered of my single-coil Fenders buzzing badly if I turned up the drive on my pedals. I have a Les Paul, but the neck pickup is muddy compared to Tele or Strat. The Deluxe pickups have more clarity, which is what I was looking for and has the dual tone and volume controls, which I prefer. Installing a treble bleed really widened the usefulness. Also fun to have a re-issue of the 70s era three bolt neck, just to be different. Plays great, low action, mine weighs 8 lbs, like a typical Telecaster.
