1 Bob Howard 2 months ago New vintage guitar day, or I should say belated because I picked this up from super Dave last year but it's been a long time putting it in shape. When I first got it I plugged it in and it sounded great (if not a little weak) but soon the sound intermittently and then permanently went out. I decided to replace the electronics. First I made a new harness with TV Jones parts and a T'Armond pup. After awhile I decided the T'Armond didn't sound right and I missed the HiLo but I had already given the original one to a friend. So I bought a TV Jones HiLo. It came with a cover that was too tall so I exchanged it for one without the back plate that they thought should fit. I suppose that they don't mod too many 1961 Clippers cause that one's cover was an eighth of an inch too tall to clear the strings. Luckily, the friend wasn't using the original one and he gave it back. I'm now using the guts of the new TV and the cover that Dave had on it in the first place and now it sounds great...Whew! I didn't mention what a great neck this has on it. I could play it all night.I think I will.
