Any thoughts on acoustic basses?

Over the weekend, I was blindsided by a powerful urge to buy an acoustic bass guitar (not stand up bass), mostly for noodling around the house without plugging in my electric or an occasional acoustic jam with friends. Can you give any buying advice or perspectives? [more inside]

What exactly is my guitar?

I purchased a used guitar several years ago (Pictures). I'd like some helping ID-ing it and finding more info about its various features. At first I thought it was a '72 American Fender Telecaster Custom, but a few things don't match up. The serial number only reveals its age range, nothing more. [more inside]

Sharp, twangy-sounding Telecaster pickups?

I just bought my first electric guitar (Fender Telecaster Mexican) and I absolutely love it. Ever the gearhead, I really want to upgrade the pickups to get a better, tailored to me sound. I've searched around to find some kind of guide, but I have come up empty. I'm looking for a really clean, sharp and twangy sound with less extra noisy buzz than I am getting now. Any suggestions/resources?
