So, I recently installed Gretsch HS Filtertrons on my 5420, wanting to get the "full Gretsch" experience on my first Gretsch. While they sound great, when I compare with my other guitar that has humbucker size P90s, I prefer the sound of the P90s. That just fits better with my tastes and style. So, wanting my Gretsch to be my main guitar and have the sound I like the most, I sold a couple of things and bought some TV Jones T90s: I love the sound, they're just what I was looking for. Output-wise they're about the same as the HS Filters, by the way. But they have that slightly mid-forward P90 thing, but not muddy or overwound or anything like that. The look however isn't quite right with a gold pickguard, For some reason the black plastic and matte gold pickguard/rings is too much. I thought it would have a Dynasonic vibe (looks wise) but for some reason it doesn't. It looks better without the pickguard: I was thinking possibly swapping the cover with a cream version. Thoughts? These aren't my photos: I'm also thinking maybe silver rings would look best if I stay with black covers.
