    Hi:

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope that your holiday season is going well.

    Please take a look at this. I'm on the verge of getting a G5230T (red), and would appreciate your input. I looked at the archives, and this is what I came up with.

    I did something similar with the BT FT I installed on my (now sold) Hagstrom Viking, using TV Jones FT to HB

    I accidentally bought a T-Armond with no mounts for my 5420 so used popsicle sticks.
    I made the little 2 screw adapter out of some tough plastic.

    Nice. Note, the Philly adapters don’t really fit TVJs for some reason, but it will work with some bending. At least that was my experience with some DuoTrons.

    The three screw Electro mount is an improvement, IMHO. I try to keep it when I can, it adjusts the pickup tilt. I also flip the ring around so the two-screw side is hidden under the pickguard.

    I’ve used popsicle sticks more than a few times. Works great

    I need to replace a Blacktop adjuster screw and spring on my 5420 but have not so far found any info on the size of the screw and spring. Are they the same size as replacement humbucker adjuster screws which seem available or any recomendations?

    Yes, it's what I would do from now on, when possible.

    A+!

    Belated thanks: My TV Neck Classics came with the universal adapter (UA), and I also plan to use this---dual screw mount adapter---in conjunction with the UA, for the pickup tilt.
