The JLS “Special #12” tone ring is a replica of the Gibson tone rings used in the Granada models in the 1930s. The maker, Jim Stull of San Antonio, Texas, has analyzed original Gibson tone rings and duplicated the specifications. When electronically tested for pitch, sustain and ring, it equals the original. This tone ring also has a slightly longer “skirt,” which provides more con- tact with the wood rim and direct contact with the heel of the neck for opti- mal tone.
