T-90 neck in the No Ears Mount - T-Series

"Monster tone!"

The T-90 is a badass tone monster! They are sparkling clean to just plain nasty! I love them!
The new design is gorgeous! I love the nickel around the black. It’s straight up sexy!
As always thanks to Tom and the crew for making such great products!

 

T-90 neck in the English Mount

"Unbelievable"

I used to own a Gibson Les Paul special that had P90’s but I traded it like an idiot and missed having P90s in my life. I decided to put one of these in the neck position of my electromatic and it honestly blew me away. This thing sounds way better than I ever remember my Gibson sounding.

EM1 Mounting Ring

"Great solution to HB mounting"

Between a universal mount TV'tron and a TV HB mounting ring, was able to put my "gretsch sized" TV Classic filtertron directly in my Eastman T185 and replace the SD 59s.

TV Classic in Soapbar Mount

"Huge improvement!"

I have a Gibson Firebird Special with P90’s and like all modern Gibson’s I have played lately the pickups were horrible. Noisy, Harsh, Distorted in the wrong way and with little to no dynamics.

I installed the TV Jones Classics (P90 soap bars) in the the bridge and The neck (as well as a vibramate and B5 Bigsby) and viola!! Smooth sustain but not too compressed, clear but not icy pick treble, dynamic bass response without being boomy. Perfection!

The next time I decide to upgrade another guitar I will be buying a TV Jones brand pickup.

 

Tone Pot Harness

"Incredible upgrade"

’m really happy with my project Electromatic. A Magna’tron in the neck, Classic Plus in the bridge. The final piece, the TV Jones harness. Real easy install as the soldering was done outside of the guitar and installed quickly with the installation set. I only had to enlarge the pot holes with a hardware store reamer and splice the ground wire to the string ground and the job was complete. Incredible customer service in addition to resources that help with the install as well. In comparison to the stock wiring mess, the noise disappeared and clarity and tone noticeable.

TV Classic in Universal Mount

"Most versatile pickup"

One of my favorite pickups. I have had about five guitars over the last twenty years in which I have put TV Jones filtertron style pickups. The classic plus is the perfect match to a classic in the neck position. These pickups have an indefinable "three dimensional” quality that sets them above all other tron style pickups and really puts them in their own separate category. The universal mount system is clever and gives alot of flexibility if you want to move the pickups to another guitar - goes from traditional Gretsch filtertron wood mount to suspended gretsch mount to full size HB route mount with the optional TV HB pickup ring. Buying this blemished model saved me a 1/3 off standard price and basically looks like it would look after a few months of play anyway, so to me a terrific deal. Thanks for a great pickup which has been one of my personal favorites for the past two decades.


Spectra Sonic Supreme

Laser Blue Metallic

Metallic Bordeaux

"Great Instrument!"

I purchased this guitar based on the great experiences I've had with TV Jones pickups in the past. I have found the pickups to be an elevated product and had no doubt that the guitar would be as well. As expected, the guitar is amazing. Perfect finish, beautiful wood, great set-up, quality hardware and of course, amazing tone. Also, really nice case. The Spectra Sonic has it's on unique sound but can handle pretty much any genre of music you choose to play with it. I hope to be able to get a second one soon.

 

Spectra Sonic Standard

Matt Black

"Amazing axe!"

This guitar is on par with guitars 3x the price. The customization and support from tv is amazing. Don’t think about it anymore just buy it, perfect for hard rock guys like me.


"New Number 1"

Waited to review because I always go back. I've been playing the same two Gretsch Guitars for ages. This is the first guitar to keep my standbys in their cases. You nailed it for me with the Sectra Sonic. T90s are the best P90 out there. Do yourself a favor and check out TV Jones.
