Brand: TV Jones
SUPER'TRON - NECK - UNIVERSAL MOUNT

The TV Jones Super'Tron is a replica of the original early 1960’s prototype design. It is basically a TV Classic with steel blades instead of pole screws and the resulting tone retains classic Filter'tron clarity, but with a bold and full broadband punch.

TONE/CHARACTERISTICS

The steel blades used in the Super'Tron provide a larger magnetized surface area producing greater inductance. While the DC Resistance is the same as the TV Classic, you will notice a little more output and body with a slightly more accentuated lower-mid range. Warmer and less aggressive than the mid 1960’s Gretsch Super’Trons (which had a bunch of thin laminated steel blades instead of one piece of steel). Great choice for finger picking, jazz, punk, blues... it has been said that this design in the neck position was loved by Chet Atkins (according to Paul Yandell).

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 - 4.8k / Inductance - 2.64H

Neck: DCR - 4.0k / Inductance - 1.81H

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 is generally not recommended for the Super'Tron due to low coil output but some say it works well due to higher coil inductance (because of the steel blades). 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.
