    So i finally shaved the ears off my filters so i could use the TV Jones blocks and mount my pickup rings..... She's finished! I love this guitar and customizing the heck out of it was a great experience. I got her a Bo Diddley trc because he has really been a great inspiration to me, music in general and Gretschdom in particular. Here she be, '08 Pro Jet, Roundup, Penguin ala Wildeman. 20170312_155738.jpg 20170312_155753.jpg 20170312_155813.jpg 20170312_155820.jpg

    That's a beauty! I've wanted to see the Cadillac trapeze on a Jet...nice job.
    '08 is the best year for the old style jets.
    Which TV Jones pickups are those and how do they sound?

    I love the Telecaster simplicity.......a three-way switch, one volume, on tone. Done.
