Really sweet. Wonder what tones the guitar is capable of with the combination of the pickups and the new tone wood (Obeche) that Jones is using. Bet it's real comfortable to play. The prices are pretty reasonable too.

I laid hands on one at the Arlington show and it was very nice.
Cliff at Destroy All guitars is going to carry the TV Jones guitars and I am going to have a couple here to check out at some point Bill...
I will let you know

I wonder if he makes these as baritones too. I was always interested in the Gretsch Spectra Sonic baritone.

Been waiting a couple of years for these to be available--they ended up a little more expensive than I thought they were gonna be but -- F'ING COOL.

Good for Cliff for finally making the Model 10 available.

I checked out the videos on TV's site recently.
The one pickup model has some neat tones, and is pretty affordable, IMO.

I wonder if he makes these as baritones too.
he has said on his forum that a baritone is planned, but no date yet

I love the looks of these!

The one that TV had his p-90 in would be a go for me. That things is awesome. Does anyoone know if these will be an option?

TV's designed/made by Gretsch Spectra Sonic is great. It sounds great and is versitile. So, I imagine that the Model 10 is right up there, just a little stripped down

it's nice. but still, 1800 aint cheap for the bigsby model.

But Japanese Gretch's arent low $$ either. There's just a lot on the market for solid body no frills guitars like that.

So it's ok, but it doesn't make me drool.

The guitar market seems to be getting more competitive in the 1500-2500 range lately.

1500-1800 is actually a lot for an import. Especially for a "no frills" import model. I did not see anywhere in the write up that it was an import either. I am surprised that DAG would sell imported guitars like that. I actually think that price point is bordering on ridiculous to be honest.

I think it's a little high. But based on how expensive Japanese Gretch's are, it doesn't seem too crazy, though.

There's a few builders in the good ole US that will hand build you a solid slab guitar like that for 2 grand or so. To your specs and better paint.

I'd just pass on it in that 1600-1800 price range.

But the TV jones PU are expensive. So that adds to the cost.
