1 Hoot Owl 1 week ago After purchasing my 2005 Tenny Rose from a fellow GDPer a few weeks ago (thanks Fretz!) and making a few adjustments, I finally had a chance to do a couple of live gigs. And the verdict is: I love this guitar! Played through a Blackface Pro Reverb, this is a different sounding and incredible sounding combination. The Hilotrons produce a very unique sound than any other pickups and really have a chunky and woody tone and crystal clear tones, especially the highs. I play with the tone switch pointed down all the time, and can’t get a bad sound! The guitar itself is comfortable to play, had great action when I got it, has a fantastic neck I love, and the thin Electrotone body is very comfortable to play. Working with the Hilotrons just means turning the amp up a notch, and down a notch if I switch guitars. Not a problem.So it would seem I have drunk the Tenny/Hilotron Koolaid. The world is now a better place!If you have been holding off on Hilotrons, I suggest giving them a try. Maybe they’re not a wholesale substitution for Dynas and Filters, but they’re pretty damn cool any way you slice it! YMMV, but I thought I’d share the love.
