    Anybody seen these? I think they look super cool. Made in USA and they come stock with a TV Jones Powertron.

    Mama!

    Dunno about the pot placement, but those are sharp. I might have to start saving.

    Body & neck looks like the 1216 Jr AXL has too, which I dug. I got enough LP/P90 guits.

    This looks ****.

    wow, i dig the tones.. no way could i live with the pots where they are. i hope this is a prototype.


    on a side note, now i know i probably need a tv jones style pup to get that going out west riff. you know the one.. where the gun fighter heads off into the sunset. they used it in all the old west movies. even bon jovi used it in one of there song.. adds filter tron style pup to my list..

    Yeah, I don't know what they were thinking putting those pots so high up.

    Bump - anyone else tried these?? I saw these up on reverb's website a while back when I was poking around and thought they really caught my eye. Specs look pretty good too - 1 piece mahogany body, real Bigsby, real TV Jones, CTS pots etc...

    Then I recently couldn't help but notice Paul Westerberg of the Replacements brought one with him on their reunion tour...

    Id like to try one. This has got my attention for sure. The way I play, I doubt the knob placement would bother me a bit. It might be different once I actually played it, but I'm liking the looks!
