26 PookaMacPhellimey 1 month ago Black TV Classics. Are the shells just painted, do you think, or something more serious like powder-coating? Are they shiny or dull?I'm trying to think where blacked-out TV Classics would be cool. I'm not coming up with anything. They are not shiny -- at least not like chrome or stainless steel, and yes, they are powder-coated. The guy has so much dosh that it is not impossible that he was willing to pay whatever the cost to have TV Jones make these special for him.Yeah, black pickups on a Gretsch... drawing a blank there, too.
