    Newport Pups

    I had a newport with seths in it. Great guitar. I've had guitars with p-90s, DDs and phat cats too. All good ... somewhat different flavors. If you want to try that tron sound without busting the budget, try the GFS versions. Are they as good as what josh will wind for you or the jones version - no. But they are in the ballpark. They'll help you decide if the sound you're hearing through your guitar, pedals and amp are for you. Then you can decide if it's worth it to take the plunge.
  5. In the light of a new info about the guitar location I think there should be a comma between "man" and "bag"
  6. Well, its on reverb at what converts to £1,460.69 - which is pretty close to $2,000 I would say. The guitar is in Sweden. No, no, you don't need to thank me...

    Newport Pups

    Phat Cats were too hot for my taste in my Newport. As much as I liked the guitar it didn't sound right to me, it was not a P90 sound for sure. At low volumes it wasn't sweet and cranked it took character away from the guitar. I got a set GTrons from Josh, very vintage, very low output. Sounds amazing. Talk to Josh.

    Newport Pups

    I am thinking the same for my Newport as well. I dig the Phat Cats , but I think a pair a TV Jones pickups would be a nice change.
  10. I've searched online to see what this material is and it still remains a mystery to me. Any former Hamer employees know what the material actually is (without giving some nebulous reference to "lubricating molecules")? Is it just a fancy marketing name for plastic? Is it really more frictionless than graphite? What's the skinny?
  11. Nice. Not lovin’ the wording factory neck shaved in the title. Sort of implies it was done after. If it was simply custom ordered with a slimmer neck profile probably better to say that. Seller in new Hartford. Interesting.

    The thing is, I do like the Phat Cats a lot. My obsession with the Jones is pretty lame because it's more that they look so cool, I'm just wondering if they sound great in the Newport.

    Also interested in trying TV jones. I never bonded with the Phat Cats. Just to shrill and metallic sounding. Have humbuckers in it now. Much better. Been thinking of trying a set of 57 Classics too, or to go down the TV Jones route (Powertrons), just because....

    Nate woulda been all over that.
  18. Is there truly still no price? Why is this still up? G
  19. I'm sure this has been covered here ad infinitum, but I'm too lazy to look it up, so I'm jst going to start from scratch: I really like the Phat Cats in my Newport, but every time I see a guitar with TV Jones I get a hankerin' to try them out. Thing is, I wouldn't try replacing them myself and the time and cost of getting it done just to be disappointed prevents me from taking the plunge. So what say you? Phat Cats or TV Jones? I realize they're very different, but what do most people prefer in a spruce top Newport?
  20. The voice was definitely not what I was expecting. I was thinking more of a Chryssy Hynde sound, or Patti Smith sound (she has that kind of look). Kinda like how when you see the lead singer of Greta van Fleet, you expect him to sound like Bob Dylan. Anyway, definitely a great sound, though more "folk" and "coffee house" than I usually listen to. Still, that's some incredible singing.

    My STR fretless is flamed ash (on the top, anyway)
  22. The increment is $2.50 . Please bid again.
  23. interested...does this have the vintage carve neck or the thinner more 60s style?
  24. Damn that's sexy! If the price wasn't so , uhh ... pricey, I'd hit that. Even a Floyd whore like myself needs at least one stop tail in their arsenal. And they don't come much more badass than that!!! ETA- even with make an offer option, that's still gonna be outta my ballpark.
