    Having had success with several GFS based builds I already have a Cabronita Tele set up sitting in my cart waiting for the next sale. Thinking burgundy mist with an all rosewood neck...
    I was starting to worry they ran into legal issues with TV Jones because its been several months since they announced these. I'm a big fan of the Retrotron humbuckers they've had for years.

    Looks cool and have enough typical GFS options.
    But for me, being able to purchase the mounting bars separately is killer, if they're compatible with TVJ or actual Gretsch Filtertrons.

    Really dig this bridge too

    can’t seem to get the image to post, but it is a 3 saddle bridge for a filtertron

    I measured my tv Jones and I think the mounting plate Guitar Fetish is selling should work. I ordered one to find out for sure. $8 all in after freight.

    I finally got the mounting bar and it does NOT work with TV Jones Powertrons
    The tv Jones are a little bit wider spacing.
