Tom Jones aka TV Jones, is one of the biggest names in guitar pickups, but he is also an incredibly talented luthier in his own right. His Spectra Sonic design was built by Gretsch for a number of years, but he has now taken the design back and is building them under his own name.


“We live by our original mission: To provide each customer with the finest guitars and pickups possible.”
