I sold a hollow body with a floating PU, then bought a used Cabronita with filtertron wannabes. That guitar was dead and lifeless- no matter what I did to it. I also unloaded a Strat and a super strat with a Floyd- leaving me only a trem-equipped guitar of a Jaguar. The Jag.... lets say I have a love-hate relationship with it.
Then this showed up for sale- half price of new price WITH TV Jones pickups. And a sparkle paint job. This is a great addition to my Les Pauls and Teles.
I was a bit skeptical of buying an Asian guitar, but this thing really sings, and its quirky Gretschness makes me forget where it was made.
The TV Jones pickups are the brightest humbuckers I have ever played. I’m thinking it is a keeper.
BTW- the seller just slapped a shipping label on the case. Go figure.....
