76 TheNocturneBrain 4 years ago Thanks for the report Tavo. My hope was these new TV Jones Tele pickups were simply better Tele pickups rather than just T-Armond-style replacements. I've been playing my new (to me) Fender American Telecaster lately, and the stock pickups actually sound quite good. If the TV Jones are an improved version of those, I'd be very happy. I would go so far to say if you removed the stock set of tele pickups and put in this set of TVjones tele-style pickups and they DIDNT sound better, I'm a monkey's uncle. These pickups arent T-armond replacements, rather they are a more focused punchy boutique tele pickup...but they do sound characteristically like T-armonds.
