they really are. the current Electromatic Jets and archtops come with what Gretsch calls "Blacktop FilterTrons," which are a growlier, more P-90esque take on Filters. some folks like them a lot, and if you don't it's simple to replace them with "real" FilterTrons. and you can do pickup swaps on the older Pro Jets fairly easily as long as they fit in the routs...P-90s are a drop-in. the one drawback to the Electromatic archtops is that they--like all of the budget archtops since the first 5120s came out in the 2000s--have the bridge pickup too far north of the bridge which screws up the highs. the 5125-5129 series of Electromatic archtops are an exception, and they also come with the DeArmond 2000s which are about 85% of the genuine Dynas they were designed to emulate. they also came in nifty colors: all white, none more black, sky blue, firebird red, and silver sparkle.

Nothing fancy here but I'm really happy with this Squier VM Tele I got recently. Love everything about this one.

Squiers are a winning proposition these days :thumb:

I am really tempted by the Squier Paranormal Cabronita Tele with P90’s thanks to the GetOffset video.

For my 50th birthday last Sunday my wife bought me this stunning guitar.

It’s a 2010 O’Donnell Custom Single Cut made right here in Melbourne.

It has a fully chambered Brazilian Mahogany body, Tasmanian Blackwood cap (nitro finish) and neck (natural - super smooth), Ebony fretboard and head plate.
The Lollar ImperiaIs are splittable via a push/pull volume knob & sound great either way.

The neck is 25”, I’m used to Fenders - Gibsons are just a bit too squeezy for my big hands but this is perfect and the natural Blackwood neck feels great.

The guitar is resonant, weighs 3.4kg/7.5lb and sounds beautiful. The workmanship on this instrument is top notch and the guitar is in virtually new condition as the previous owner custom ordered it and then only played it at home and for a handful of gigs.

I took the guitar to Craig O'Donnell for a set up & to recut the nut, it was cut for 10-46 & I use 11-54.

He told me he only made 3 guitars like this - all commissioned for individual players.

The blackwood used for the top he sourceded from an arborist in north western Tasmania who had spent years researching & identifying the growth conditions for figured and flamed timber.

The wood is probably over 200 years old and then Craig let it sit to dry for another 10 before using it.

These 3 guitars are the only ones he has ever made with a blackwood necks and the only one with a natural finish!

If I could have designed a guitar with my ideal specs wouldn't have come up with something as good as this. :!!!:
