    Ordered some new strap buttons & switch tips for a customer's consigned 2001 6120-SSL & a set of BT filters to replace the stock ones from my ProJet I used elsewhere at some point so I could get it ready to move along & was super happy to see A) the BT filters included the 3 screw rings & all mounting screws & B) he threw in this awesome extra gratis.

    With all undue build up out of the way, I present to you my new Silver Falcon (fridge magnet) ;):
    Now I just have decide if I'm going to drop the TVJ Classic+/Classic set I pulled out of the ProJet into my Panther...

    I'd install the TVJs in that Panther but that's me.
    They got stock filters now? I know very little about Panthers..

    Yeah, HS Filters. I keep going back & forth on this one, one day they sound great to me (& the guitar sounds great acoustically) & then 2 or 3 others it's simultaneously kinda boomy & spiky & dead sounding... Can't come up w/ a good explanation other than A) I'm insane or B) it's got a poltergeist (or maybe a combo of both?)

    I'll likely give the TVJs a try along w/ a new set of NYXLs tomorrow.

    He really is, any order I've placed w/ him seems to be filled & ready for USPS within 20 minutes of being placed and delivered within 24-48 hours. Just a great place for Fender & Gretsch parts.

    Got my Hilotrons from Darren a few weeks ago. Good price, quick service. I recommended him to my friend and today he also ordered a set of Hilotrons from him. I will buy from him again.

    I really like the HS Filter'Trons in my Annie and Silver Jet. And then I play the TVJ Classics in my RHH... Ah, but in my case I am lucky, I can just enjoy the variety.

    Awesome fridge magnet, think I need to get one of those!
