Introducing the Power'Tron—the ultimate marriage of twang, fatness, sparkle and warmth.
The Power'Tron was born out of TV Jones' desire to create a Filter'Tron-sized pickup with a strong midrange presence and high output, while still retaining the famous sparkle and bass-note clarity of their TV Classic.
Their matched Power'Tron neck model uses standard bobbins (to retain a 5/8" cover height), overwound with standard-gauge wire. The resulting tone is slighty darker and hotter than a TV Classic neck, scooping on an extra helping of thick, buttery goodness.
So, you ask, how is the Power'Tron bridge model different from the TV Classic Plus? Well, the Power'Tron has a tone that is fat and full — the result of tall coils wound with standard wire. The TV Classic Plus is more like a vintage Filter'Tron pickup with extra-attitude — this due to more turns of thinner wire on a short bobbin.
The Power'Tron neck model uses standard .380" pole-to-pole spacing.
The English Mount allows you to swap out your stock humbuckers with a TV Jones Filter'Tron style pickup. This mounting option when coupled with a Gretsch pickup ring is the perfect choice for a 5120 style Gretsch guitar. Stock Gretsch rings will not fit. You must purchase the TV Jones rings to work with the English Mount. All English Mounts are designed for open pickup cavities with no support.
This pickup comes in chrome, nickel and gold.
