No I didn't build this for Brad Paisley, I built it for Dale. But he has good taste in sound and ordered the same pickup that Brad used in the bridge of his Tele. Is it good sounding just because Brad uses it? No, it's great sounding because it's great sounding no matter who uses it. You might notice the Calaham bridge with two brass saddles and one steel saddle. It's all in the details. What you won't notice unless you play it is the 4 way switching to let the middle position be in phase or out of phase. Does it make a difference? It sure does. A nice Copper pickguard and control plate stand out nicely against the burnt pine body. Dale might not be as famous as Brad but he sounds as good.
