TV Jones produces the TV Classic with their own parts made entirely in the USA. They've recreated the look of the original late 1950's Filter'Tron cover. It has a tighter radius around the top edge, a flatter top, and a height of 3/4", compared to the shorter modern reproduction cover height of 5/8". To improve pickup balance, they make the neck pickup available in a lower 5/8" high cover. But the soul of this pickup is in the magnets they use: they analyzed 1/4" thick late 1950's alnico magnets and reproduced them especially for use in their TV Classic.
The pole screws used on TV Jones pickups are original 6/32 fillister-head steel screws. The fillister-head screw has a cylinder-shaped head, which provides better string separation than a domed-shaped pole screw.
The bridge pickup has a pole to pole width of .406" to aid in centering the pole screws under the guitar strings, which are farther apart near the bridge. The result is optimum string separation and output.
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. For Les Paul or Ibanez Artcore the Gibson-style ring would go on the English Mount. Stock Gibson 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.
Please Note: This mounting option is not intended for Professional Collection Gretsch guitars (eg; 6120, White Falcon, Jet series, Country Gentleman, etc.)
This pickup comes in gold, chrome, and nickel.
