TV Jones or HS Filter'Trons (and $100 in my pocket)?

    I saw that a few places had them in Nickel, but there's no such luck with Gold. Had this guitar had nickel hardware throughout, I'd have definitely gone that route. Looking forward to the TV Jones Classics though too.

    Yes!
    I don’t think you’ll have any regrets. I have TVJ harnesses in three of my guitars - tonal improvements in all three (and one of them isn’t a Gretsch).

    I didn't realize the gold Filtertrons were so hard to come by. I have a set of gold Filtertrons and a set of gold Dynas (both USA) that I have not dealt away.

    So I've decided to go ahead and order the wiring harness for my 5422. Does anyone know if the stock gold screws for the pickup rings will fit into the EM2 rings that are coming with the TV Jones Classics I have on their way? I suppose I'll know for sure in a few days when they get here, but I'd rather go ahead and order the harness and don't want to buy the gold screws from TV Jones if I don't need them.

    I'm a bit late to the party with this, however.... Here's my thoughts,
    Tv Jones makes great pickups and the classics are no exception, but to my ears HS Filters are just as good, the classics may have a tad more higher end which maybe a good thing or maybe not so good, let your ears decide, anyhow I love HS filters especially sans wax.
