    That was the first thing I noticed too... not the dual ceramic bars. What a great deal.

    Me too. I haven't been up to Buffalo in awhile. But as a former UB alumni, I do miss the place.

    After 5 years at UB, I had trouble adjusting back to life in NYC.

    I can imagine - NYC is action packed - buffalo = much slower pace ?

    How can you tell that they're Tex Mex and not some other Fender Alnicos with teflon (or is it pvc) hookup wire?

    The color of the wires for bridge/middle/neck (black/red, black/yellow, black/white), the style of bobbin and lack of ceramic magnets on the bottom - I've memorized them all. The only other pickups that use that bobbin were the old American Standard pre-fat 50s pickups.....and they had very different color wire hookup......plus tex mex is a SUPER common upgrade, it's the cheapest set Fender sells so you find them a LOT.

    Congrats. My 06 Fender Strat is my favorite guitar to play. From what I understand that's the year they stopped using the vintage narrow frets and also changed from a small to a full size block on the trem. I put TexMex pups in it as well and now I wouldn't change a thing. Enjoy. Heres mine.
