USA Made JLS Tone Ring

Tony Pass Rim

GT Master Planetary Tuners

Hearts & Flowers Inlay

The "plus" in the OB-250+ is the ultra-premium JLS #12 tone
ring. Developed by master caster Jim Stull of San Antonio, Texas, this
ring is the result of years of analyzing many pre-WW ll G-word tone
rings to ascertain the formula of the bronze alloy used to make them the
sought-after pieces of hardware they've become. This long-skirt tone
ring improves the contact between the neck, the rim and the tone ring,
increasing the transmission of energy from the pot to the neck. It
mimics the tone of the costly originals at a tiny fraction of the
original's cost. The OB-250+TP adds the phenomenal Tony Pass/Schaefer
birch (recovered from the bottom of Lake Superior) block-style rim for
even MORE powerful tone. Includes hard shell case. Available as
left-handed model.
