I've always liked the looks and sound of a "la cab" tele. I've tried a few MIM models, but they didn't have "that sound". A few years back, I put together a T- style partscaster with a single P-90 with Esquire style wiring. Over time, my tastes changed and I replaced the P-90 with a TV Classic Plus with just basic volume and tone controls. I loved the simplicity of that setup, and that sound, oh man, that sound! Then last year, an infamous high end company released a guitar with their humbucker on the bridge position, a brass barrel bridge, and a d-style neck pickup. I loved the idea, but I'm a pretty diehard tele guy. So I decided to make my own. What can I say that hasn't been said before about the T-Armond? That sound! That sound that I've been searching for. In combination with the Tv Classic plus in the bridge and a three way switch, this is what I've been searching for! Beautiful, articulate clean tones, but throw in a bit of gain and you're into classic Aerosmith or Zz Top tones with ease. I'm far from a great player, but after noodling around for the past 30 years, I know what I like. These rock!!!
