Tom purchased his first guitar at the age of 14. His interest led him on a passionate journey toward becoming a self-taught musician, luthier, and eventually, pickup maker. 2020 marks Tom’s 27th year of handcrafting guitars and basses. Tom “TV” Jones is internationally recognized for the handmade pickups used in guitars and basses around the globe. Tom has consulted and designed instruments and pickups for industry leaders including Gretsch, Bigsby, Fender, and Cort. According to Tom, the HGGS is a premier showcase of talent where fellow artists can admire and learn from one another’s work.
My goal is to find the perfect tone and create the best personality possible for each guitar I design. The Holy Grail Guitar Show is a highlight for luthiers!
