    Sooooo...did you install the TV Jones yet??...and more importantly...would you do it again??? I'm in a similar boat. Thinking seriously about getting some TV Jones Classics for my G5120....but want to be happy I did it, especially in light of the fact that TV Jones pickups are not inexpensive.

    I installed a TV Classic and Classic+ set in my 5570 and all I can say is WOW. It really opened up the whole guitar. Those pickups give all the warmth/jangle/grit/hifi/twang that a Gretsch should have.

    The "other" guy was Chris Pelonis, and they have a Super 17 MkIII and a Goodsell Dominatrix, sometimes A/B/Y and sometimes Jeff plays one or the other...

    Just got a nearly new silver jet with Filtertrons. I've had only limited time with it because of a crazy work schedule, but have noticed 2 things: 1) pushes my amps into a beautiful break-up 2) need to pin the bridge pronto and maybe follow that up quickly with a TruArc bridge to help with some intonation issues.

    Pics coming soon!

    I'm back in the club. I had a double cut White Falcon that didn't do it for me, sold it and was a little disappointed in my Gretsch experience.

    Then I picked up a Country Club (cadillac green) and it's exactly what I hoped for in a Gretsch guitar.

    Gold Pro Jet with Bigsby B7 and pickup rings. I need to make a new pickguard for it. The white pearloid it came with looks terrible with the other colors and would also sit too high with the rings. I will also eventually add controls to make it like a Duo-Jet.

    Since my post on page 5, I've gone through a couple of iterations... I sold that Club and picked up a blonde spruce Club , (left) which initially had been listed here on the classifieds at TDPRI...At the time it was listed here, it was out of reach but i passed that info onto someone else, who bought it, and then for some other acquisitions he wanted to do, later sold it to me (he gave me right of first refusal if he ever sold it, since i had tipped him off to it).

    with a Bigsby and Seymour Duncan Custom shop Dynasonics, its a lovely piece!

    I also picked up a rare Super Gretsch , right-- the pre FMIC Terada reissue of the Baldwin era Super Chet -- but I havent bonded with it. it s up for sale on TGP and i may list it here.

    how do you like the Supertrons? If i keep the Super, i may put supertrons in it...
