Make your humbucker-equipped guitar sound like a Tele! Clips!

Okay, i was browsing on Metal Guitarist and came across this thread..,
I have a MAJOR Tele fetish, so of course i had to try it. I have a Dimarzio Super 2 in the bridge of my RG470, so i removed the back 3 pole pieces from the E A and D, and the front 3 of the G B and e to give it a staggered, Tele bridge position kinda tone. As soon as i plugged it in, i was blown away.
I recorded these quick clips with my Kemper to demonstrate. Give it a try sometime, i'm amazed! And when you're done being twangy, just screws those poles back in. No biggie. Enjoy!

yeah, I saw a youtube vid about this a while back and tried it too. I experimented with the # of screws I took out. fun stuff! I did it in my epi explorer neck pickup since it was just a crap epi stock whatever, but it did change the tone and I was impressed : )
