    Props to TV Jones for outstanding customer service!

    Had a customer come in with a hot rodded Jazzmaster hybrid fitted with TV Jones Powertron pickups. The neck pickup did not sound quite right. We got on the phone with TV Jones and they helped trouble shoot and offered to fix it NO CHARGE! I also love their pickups!

    Who likes Tele neck pickups as they are??

    I cheated a little and put a Don Mare Super Sport set (Stelly neck PU) in my MJ Tele and I love the neck pickup just the way it is. In fact I love the entire guitar just as it is... so why do I keep wanting to put a Firebird pickup in the neck???? I see so many variations on the neck pickup...
