TV Jones Power'Tron Guitar Neck Pickup, Universal Mount, Nickel

$140.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Sku: TV-PTN-UVNKL
Brand: TV Jones
- NECK - UNIVERSAL MOUNT

The Power’Tron was born out of our desire to create a pickup that has the character of a PAF-style humbucker yet retains the essence of a Filter’Tron. It sounds a little bit darker and somewhat gnarlier, with more windings — as much as a PAF humbucker — for hotter output.

TONE/CHARACTERISTICS

Mixing the vintage tone of a golden-age PAF with the rockabilly twang of a late-'50s Filter'Tron. Full body and a clear top end that is naturally dynamic. Digging in reveals a chunky low-end breakup paired with a barky top-end grit that sounds amazing through a tube amp. This is a great choice if you like the overall Filter’Tron sound but want more guts and glory than usually provided by lower output pickups.

INSTALLATION:

The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Filter'trons - with and without "ears" or “clips”. This pickup comes with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and the Universal Mount Clip Pack which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to your ring or pickguard.

TECH SPECS:

OUTPUT/POWER


DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

Bridge: DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 4.75H

Neck: DCR - 5.0k / Inductance - 2.24H

WIRING NOTES

This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.

Splitting coils works well with the Power’tron because of its naturally higher output. 4-Conductor wire is also convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.

HELPFUL NOTES:

Filter'tron Replacement: The Universal Mount is a direct drop in replacement for Vintage Filter'trons, HS Filter'trons, Fideli'trons, Mega'trons, Full’trons and any other standard sized 'Trons (including old No Ears & English Mount). Blacktop Filter'trons require one Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup in order to attach to their stock rings. When replacing Broad'trons and Gretsch-Buckers, you will need a new EM2 Ring.

Post-2012 Electromatics: One Dual Screw Mount Adapter per pickup will be necessary to mount Universal Mount pickups to your stock ring.

Streamliners: These guitars are made with "Gibson-style" rings instead of standard Gretsch rings. You will want to choose either an EM1 or EM2 Ring to replace these when installing a Universal Mount Pickup (this depends on which style you prefer). If you choose the EM2 Gretsch Style Ring you will also want a pack of Ring Risers.

Gretsch 5120/5122: New Rings and Ring Risers are necessary for this guitar due to it's high neck angle.

Pre-2012 Pro Jets: These will require some specific modification in order to install Universal Mount pickups.

Humbucker Replacement: To replace standard Humbuckers, pair this Universal Mount with one of either the EM1 (Gibson-style), EM2 (Gretsch), or EM4 (Fender-style) rings.
