I agree, the TA mount in the T90s just makes the pick ups look so much better, do you notice a difference on sound at all?

Honestly, it's been too long since I had the soap bars for me to say. If there's any difference at all, it's subtle. That's about as concrete as I can get with the comparison after so much time.

I never realized TV offered the surrounds. Is that an ad on that you can add to an existing TA soapbar? It looks super classy!

I don't think so, you have to buy them that way. TV doesn't sell parts and doesn't do custom work (unless your a star).

Thank you. Maybe at some point I’ll email and see if I can buy the whole cover and just swap out at some point. I love the look.

@ruger9 .... Wow, I love this! Bad luck for me that I just picked up a new Tele that I caught a ton of guff for from my wife. I'll explain more in a NGD thread but yeah, love the TA Surrounds.

Will this be a Tele All Tale?
Such an impulsive purchase, that I don't even know all about it!! I want to take pics and create a thread but a bit of a virus and a fever has me in wimp mode. It's right next to me by the couch so I've been noodling with it unplugged.

Honestly, those look just as good. Not sure about that slice of leftover Salami though. 😛
haha I replaced the black pickguard on day 1. Black looks good on white, not on vintage white/cream... no to me anyway. I knew when I clicked "buy it now" it was going to have a tortoise guard.

Looks great... thinking of getting these for my Double Jet. How do they sound?
They sound great! Perfectly balanced with each other. I think they are a little clearer than Gibson-style P90s, but they are VERY powerful/loud.

Thanks. I know these things only translate roughly, but they seem to have a similar output to the P90s I'm used to.

By clearer, would you say they have some of the top end sparkle of a filtertron? I suppose I'm hoping for something between a standard P90 and the blacktop filters currently in my guitar.... so clarity, but with plenty of mids...

I think that's exactly what they are, a cross between a P90 and a Filtertron, leaning heavily P90. I have also has Filtertrons (and Powertrons) and T-Armonds, and Rio Grande BBQ'Trons (even more powerful than anything TVJ makes) in the same guitar, so I think I've got a good base of tonal comparison.
