I'm starting to wonder if the magnets in my T-Armonds are just too strong. The polls are either even or below the top of the pickup and if I try to adjust the pickup body to TV Jones recommendation the string pull is super severe. I can see the beating on my strobe tuner, I can hear the string rattle and the out of tune sound. All these symptoms go away when I lower the pickups but the high end goes away and all the balls does too. I'm using 10s nickel wound like you. I'm going to try more adjustments after I talk with TV Jones. I've been happy with all my other TV Jones pickups. I've been very busy recording and have just pushed the Jet to the side and used my Telly or Gent instead. I really haven't had much time to play with it. I bought these pickups two years ago and just haven't used the guitar much. I thought of the toaster pickups because I've been throwing around the idea of buying a rick 330 6 string (I have the 12 string and love the sound). Maybe it would be worth trying them in the Jet.
