So, we already mentioned this awhile ago, but Tom has a new guitar blog where he is, well blogging, about his custom made guitars that he is getting done for the upcoming summer tour. He updated today with one of the final products that will be featured in the upcoming Gossip Girls episode May 11. This was found on nodoubt.com this afternoon.
This is a custom guitar that the Hamer folks built for me in 2005. It has a nice heavy solid Mahogany body, with a “matte” TV finish. One volume knob, and one tone to keep it simple. Also there is a 5 position rotary-style pickup selector. You’ll notice 3 TV Jones pickups to add a vintage Gretch-like tone and continue the TV theme. And furthurmore I play this guitar on No Doubt’s upcoming TV appearance on the Gossip Girl spinoff, airing on May 11th on the CW television network. For that performance I also customized the look of this guitar with stripes fashioned from black electrical tape.
