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 Soapbar Mount uses the same size cover as a stock P-90 soapbar but with a TV Jones pickup under the hood. Featured in the Gretsch G6136 David Lee Model.
This pickup comes in chrome, nickel and gold.
