    Trying to make a guitar buying decision tonight. Anybody know what a previously installed/like new bridge and neck set of TV Jones classics will sell for on the used market?

    I'd be curious too. What do they go for new, $140 each/$280 for a set?

    Yeah about that plus shipping I’m guessing.

    Just the curious two so far?

    Anybody?

    There was a set recently, cant remember for sure the price though... $180 shipped maybe? I was a bargain at any rate and I thought about it...
    Just an FYI; TV makes some great pickups, but the standard TVJ I put in sounded no different than the Plus versions of the Gretsch ones. I sold the TVJ immediately. (that was a few years ago)
    Now if you go for some of the different models, that may well be worth it.

    Cheapest deal I can find at eBay is $121.50 plus the tax for a single bridge pickup.

    No way would I pay $121 for used, when you can buy new for $138.

    I have those in my 6120...

    If somebody asked me... I would ask 200€

    BUT I am not changin' them... Sometimes I think I would change them for Dynasonics but then I play the thing and forget about it

    Depending on location, condition, finish and level of GAS emissions I’d guess between 150-180 for a used pair. They’re 300 bucks new over here.
