Only one really qualifies for this forum but hopefully you will appreciate the different applications of the good old lucky horseshoe!!!

Interesting! How does the jazzbox sound with a bridge horseshoe?

And what's the make of the Tele? I built/ordered a similar double f-hole tele with binding and a figured redwood top on mahogany about 15 years ago from USA Custom Guitars (Warmoth only did the single f-hole thinline, at least at the time). Mine had a P90 in the neck too (alnico polepiece Fralin) but a normal Tele bridge and pickup, and the Gibson style toggle like yours.

Nice. Yet part of me is sad thinking about the steels that gave their pick-ups for the guitars. Laps destroyed beyond repair with their pick-ups left unscathed?

That middle horse shoe doesn't look like a Rick PU, it reminds me of the first Bigsby horseshoes on Joaquin Murpheys first triple neck

The B6 is original mid to late 40,s , the Epiphone electar is from 1937 with Epiphones take on the Horseshoe before Rickenbacker enforced the patent.
The Tele caster was put together in 2001 in the UK by a luthier called Dave King, he is National & Martins authorised service warranty man.I hold my hands up on this one as using a broken 52 SD Rickenbacker for the pickup.
All of them are fantastic in there own way depending on the mood you are in.
My current favourite is the Electar as I have only had it a little while and it Honks with that pickup.

I actually JUST picked one up almost identical to yours. I've had it for a week and absolutely love it. Sounds amazing.
