Tv Jones that will be a Good Match for Lil'59

Recommended Posts

I really like this Duncan Lil'59 in this Tele but the Neck Fender Fidelitron is super weak compared to the Lil'59. Would a TV Jones Powertron be a good match?

If you're looking for hotter output, then yes - the TV Jones Power'Tron should give you more output than the stock Fender Fideli'Tron.

 

As far as it being a good match for the Duncan, I can't say for certain either way, since I've never tried the two together... but I'd be surprised if their output levels were dramatically different. The neck pickup tone difference though, should be notable. I'd expect the Power'Tron to sound not only louder, but to be a bit darker and lack some of that Gretsch twang compared to the stock Fender Fideli'Tron. It's still going to be somewhat Gretsch-like, just not as much.

I wouldn’t expect the output of the Classic to be all that different than what you already have TBH.

I big pair up I have seen is the Dimarzio twang king and TV Jones Classic. I might do the Area T and the Classic since I have problems with noise. I have a hot area T in another Tele and I get a lot of compliments on the sound of it. The Area T and Twang King are similar in output on Dimarzios website.

Every stock Tele I have played the neck is way weaker than the the bridge. It was, I believe, designed that way by Leo for a "split role" reason.

Whether you still have a Tele when you throw away that chemistry is open to debate.

WHY don't you guys buy what you like in the 1st place???

 

Always the best approach IMHO, but “what you really want” may not always be available off the shelf - you might need to tweak a stock guitar to get what you truly want.
