NAMM 2011 - Editors' Picks, Day 1

Chris Kies - Associate Editor

Schecter TSH-1
A sexy new model with classic appeal, the TSH-1 is a semi-hollow doublecut that features a set, 3-piece maple set, a maple body, and a rosewood fretboard. It comes in either a silverburst finish or red metallic reverse burst. The SuperRock MH pickups have a bit of a Dynasonic visual vibe, but the over-wound ceramic magnets reportedly serve up a hotter, more modern sound. Currently, the TSH-1 is available for both lefties and righties, and Schecter's president, Michael Ciravalo, mentioned the possibility of it being available with a Bigsby tremolo.

TV Jones P-90 Mounts
Ever wanted to put some P-90s in your Gretsch? Well, thanks to TV Jones you can go on and do it without subjecting the guitar's top to destruction. The four-screw mounts come in three different styles: standard, English (a Gretsch- or Gibson-style ring), and a "no-ears," mini-humbucker-style option. The pickups shown in this photo are TV Jones Classic P-90s . The bridge pickup purportedly has thicker highs and more defined lows than traditional P-90s. The neck pickup has alnico 4 bar magnets and is intended to deliver clarity and fullness, with considerably less boom than regular P-90s. Larger pole screws are used on both the neck and bridge models to help increase inductance.
