    It’s killer. Sounds a lot like a T-Armond. Real fat deep twang.

    They to me did not sound much like the T-armonds in my other tele, but they do have a beautiful open bounce and twang. I had them in my rutters swamp ash 52' for a time.
    this vid does not look good anymore since youtube has changed format, but listen from 1:59 to hear the T-armonds into a princeton (yes brain stufff is involved sorry)

    To me they don’t sound just like, but a lot like.
    When I play one of my songs that I normally play using the neck T-Armond in my 5420, it’s really similar. Similar enough that I could use this guitar to play it, and not feel like much is missing.
    Thru a Brain, natch.

    I like the combination.
