    Just once, but it was the same day I tried T Armando for the first time and that is what I remember. Gold foils are the only gold hardware I'd consider, although I like those silver foils even more!

    I have 3 guitars with goldfoils... Supro Westbury, Silvertone Jupiter and I even put a set of GFS foils in my Gretsch 5420, I love the tone! The Supro goldfoils are amazing!

    Just ordered a neck dearmond spec gold foil in p90 form from
    Gemini pickups. I'll report back.

    What you really need to do is take the mouthpiece from an old telephone and wire it to a 1/4" jack, then you drop it into an acoustic guitar, AWESOME! Dont just take my word for it.

    Well written!

    I use a Teisco offset type from Mojo Tone in my main Tele (neck position), and have some Novak DeArmond types in a Jazzmaster, love em.
