You told me you like the Ibbie to play, so upgrade that one first.
Yes , sorry that's what I meant But should I upgrade the Tele or the Gibson first?
Pros about upgrading the...
Tele: Would give me the other end of the spectrum in contrast to the Ibbie. I wouldn't end up with 2 warmer guitars. I've had it longer than I would have the Gibson so a relationship has grown on me. I don't really want to go changing a new guitar
Gibson: I'll end up with a high end guitar with nice pickups, would be a good all rounder
Bleh who am I kidding, I'll upgrade the Tele first. I'll have to let the Gibson grow on me first and if I upgraded it it would be the new teacher's pet by far.
But since this thread is called Classic Rock Conversion (and the Les Paul is what I want to make a Classic Rock machine), would Nantuckets be good for a nice clean tone with a vintage drive sound too? I really like those full bell-like neck pickup tones...

Yep Nantuckets. And it's a good thought to upgrade the Tele before the Gibson. You have the Ibbie for the heavier tones and the telecaster for everything spanky and bell-like.

Good idea thanks. Unfortunately I think I'm sorted, now I won't be doing anymore productive thinking until I get them seeing as everything is sorted out haha xD
But thanks a lot guys

I wouldn't get ahead of yourself, you haven't even got one set of BKPs and you're already worrying about your second and third, one for a guitar you don't even own yet.

Upgrade your Ibby and then proceed from there

Yes, that's what I keep telling myself. But right now I'm in a position where I'm not doing anything, or going anywhere,  so the best thing I could do is find my ideals. I will upgrade my Ibbie first and see if I like it and whether or not I should go ahead with more.
You're right, but I'm a thinker/dreamer and my mind is always ticking so it might as well be about this lol xD

Oh man I can relate, I think we all can to some extent.  There are few things more fun than fantasizing about what pickups to put in a guitar.

I wasn't trying to get you down, just don't lose sight of what's in front of you...
