Modifications

No modifications needed except switching to .10 Gibson Vintage Reissue, which achieve much better intonation on this pinned bridge compared to the stock .11 D'Addarrio strings. Furthermore these pure nickel strings smoothed out the tone, which was much too bright due to the combination of TVJ Classics with an aluminium bridge.

Unusual factory features

TV = TV Jones Classics Pickups;
TA = True-Arc Aluminium Bridge, gold finished;
FR = Firebird Red Nitro Lacquer;
FSR = Factory Special Run (Limited Edition).
Also worth mentioning are the pinned bridge and the trestle bracing.
