    There is something in TV Jones pickups that I can't seem to get enough of.
    Added 2 Cabronitas to the collection recently, another '09 White FCS and the new LE butterscotch version.
    This brings the total to 6...

    Fender's S1 switch, adds a tone cap to the output.

    Love mine, but was not the biggest fan of the Fender Fidelitrons, or the TVJ Classics, so I went with the T-90s. I have a set of T-Armonds on the way to try in her, then after that I'll try DuoTrons.

    The T-90s have been in a couple years, they are GREAT pickups for Cabs.

    It is, Fender's S1 switching system. It does make the tone a bit darker for my liking. I've found it works well live, to go from a darker sound to the default brighter sound for solos.

    T-90s huh? I've been considering checking those out since TV jones is "right down the road" (and hell of nice guy to chat with also). The black 2011 cab has the PowerTron+ set installed with a coil splitter. They definitely bring out the "snarl" quite a bit more.

    Looks like maybe you swapped out the bridge on your white one as well?

    Yes it's an Am.St. 6 saddle. I play pretty aggressively, and the "vintage style" ones can sometimes tough up my right hand with the exposed action height screws. Plus they just seem cheap to me. I prefer the smoother Am.Std. bridge. On my next Cab I'd like to try a Rutters I think.

    The T-90s are great, they put the Cab somewhere in-between a tele and a Les Paul Jr. I've had them in for 2-3 years now, and am going to try a set of the TV Jones T-Armonds next (on the way). Personally, I use and recommend 250Ks for the T-90s (TVJ recommends 500Ks, but those are for Grestch guitars, big hollowbodies that are supposed to jangle). I like my teles to be a little meatier.

    Well now I know where all the Cabronita's went to.

    I've been wanting a Thinline Cabronita for some time, but I'll probably end up making a couple Thinline Tele's. 1 Cabronita, 1 with dual P90's and 1 with dual Firebirds. Of course I'll want 1 with Dynasonics and one with some Gold Foils too down the line.

    Okay, now I see why you have so many of them.:lol::cool:
