Here's what Guitar Player Magazine has to say about TV Jones Spectra Sonic Supreme:
"I plugged the Spectra-Sonic Supreme into a Reverend Hellhound Combo, as well as Orange Tiny Terror and Egnater Rebel 30 heads. The resulting sound was unlike any other guitar I have played. Though obviously Gretsch-leaning, the fullness and sustain exceeded any Gretsch of my experience. It recalled the way a great guitar might sound on a fully mixed and mastered recorded track, not in a compressed way, but in terms of richness and polished tone.
The neck pickup retains plenty of blues bite, yet warms up to a jazzy roundness with the tone rolled off a bit. The bridge pickup has the distinctive FilterTron edge, but with no trace of harshness.
My first impression was that this is the perfect roots or pop guitar—born to play jangly clean, with reverb and tremolo, or at most, slightly crunchy. But as I experimented with the S-SS, it revealed its versatility. With a little bit of Blue channel from a Jetter Jetdrive pumping a clean Tiny Terror setting, it rocked out in an expected Americana fashion, but I later found that kicking up the Orange’s gain and engaging both channels on the Jetdrive launched a surprisingly convincing hard rock tone as well. Squeals à la Billy Gibbons were no problemo, and I could even imagine the tight low end of these pickups appealing to select metal mongers. Thanks to the chambered body, easily produced, controllable feedback was just one more color in the Supremes’ palette.
In its highly individual way, the Spectra-Sonic Supreme serves up the full sonic spectrum in widescreen, Blu-ray colour. Add a unique playability and a sexy appearance and you have a shoe-in for an Editors' Pick Award."
