I acquired a 1997 CIJ Tele Custom with a wide-field humbucker in neck and a dual blade type in bridge. I opened it up to see what kind of pu the bridge was; turned out to be labeled Kent Armstrong TEHR-1. The TEHR-1 was not mentioned anywhere, but it looks like what they are calling now the Power Blade. Basically seems to be a mini-HB. There is a difference tonally between the pickups, with the Armstrong having more treble. Volume is about the same.
I'm looking to go to a more traditional SC sound, so I ordered the Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder. I know that the Duncan will likely have less output but it should sound more like a Tele than a HB. This is my first pickup swap and I hope it will be simple. The Armstrong is a 4 wire setup while the Duncan is 2 wire. Should be easy, but I know I can call upon Moe's experts if I run into trouble.
Yes, Peegoo has it right. I'm the original poster child for ADHD. No sooner do I get a new (to me) guitar, then I'm looking around for my next one. FYI, the Duncan pickup I installed was good, but not inspiring, so the Custom Tele has gone down the road. The cash went to my Duesenberg Starplayer. Now I'm selling my Gibson Nighthawk to finance a Rick. It's all because of the semi-quarantine I'm in because of the virus. Maybe when life goes somewhat normal, I'll buy a new guitar a year, not a month.
