Many famous players had switched out their Gretsch Filtertrons and Supertrons to TV Jones pickups.
The Spectra Sonic Bass, model G6145, came with twin TV Jones pickups.
The body came in black with a large white pickguard. The $2000 price point effected sales.
Gretsch has dropped the line; however, Jones is manufacturing Spectra Sonic guitars and bass guitars and selling them on his own.
