    Whenever I go to meet someone to collect a guitar, my wife makes me give her a note with the location and seller details.

    To humour her, I always put as headings:

    Murder Location 
    Murderer's Name

    Honeymoon-evening is VERY positive.

    I was toying with a few different options but really glad I went mahogany - enjoying the dryness of the bass notes under a plectrum (cue enthusiastic heavy-handed playing)

    Congrats! Very much a do-anything axe.

    Caution with the K&K...the bridge plate is too small on a TV for the transducers to all totally fit on when using the standard positioning/supplied jig. Led to weak output when I tried one in mine. Make sure it’s installed by someone competent who understand the issue and has some ideas as to how to deal with it.

    Ooh - thanks for the heads up - what sort of workarounds are there?

    Not sure. I ended up taking it out because the output was so different to my Collings with the same pickup that I would have needed separate preamps to use them on the same gig and I couldn’t be arsed.

    I had a lyric in there for a while but hated having all the gubbins (battery, preamp etc)  inside such a lightly built guitar.

    So in the end I just used a M1A any time I wanted to amplify it, and only put it in when I was going to have to.

    Looks lovely. And I'm assuming plays & sounds amazing, since hearing the difference between a regular and TV Hummingbird last week. J45s sound better in the first place, so the TV must be phenomenal

    (and +1 for the M1A if the KK isn't going to work. Great no-nonsense pickup. There's a reason half the pros all jumped on it when it was released)

    Yep - lovely playing action, nice and light too.

    I’d made the ‘mistake’ of A/B ing a Standard and a TV some while back the the ones I tried showed the TV to be lighter, more responsive, just 'more'

    re the pickup it might make more sense to get an M80 (that's the new version of the M1A right?) and share it across both guitars for when they get played out (although the idea is the J45 is the main 'playing out' guitar for open mics etc.)

    I presume still a good idea to get a jack fitted - actually yes I will I reckon

    Update: The honeymoon period turned out to just be the start of a long-term love period.

    I've bought a used Baggs M80 (for roughly what a used M1A costs) and found a fella who says he can fit the jack and whatnot. 

    I love this thing so much
