Poulsbo, WA (July 24, 2009) -- TV Jones guitars, best known for their popular Filter'Tron pickups, is now releasing their second production model, a single cut-away solid body guitar dubbed the Model 10.
Compared to the Spectra Sonic (TV Jones’ first production model) the Model 10 is stripped down to the bare essentials. It's constructed with a wood called Obeche (pronounced Oh-Bee-Chee) discovered by Jones. The body and neck are both made of Obeche--it's very transparent, which translates well when you plug it in.
There are several options including a single, bridge pickup version, as well as a B5 vibrato version with two pickups. The body size is small and streamlined (similar to a Les Paul Jr.) and has a durable, thin polyurethane finish with no gloss. It is available in 4 colors: matte black, toffee burst, metallic ice blue and crimson red.
Neck Scale length: 24.625"
Sides & Body Width: 1.75" thick, 14.25" wide
Tuners: Sperzel non-locking #1 buttons

Tailpiece: Custom TV Jones tailpiece (optional: Bigsby B-5 vibrato)
