TV Jones Brian Setzer Pickup

About This Item

Get the tone of Brian Setzer for any guitar
TV Jones Universal Mount makes it easy to finally get this iconic tone in your guitar.

The Brian Setzer Signature pickup is derived from Brian's longtime preference for the TV Jones TV Classic, but is a bit more over-the-top than TV Jones other Filter'Tron creations. It features a proprietary design which employs special-alloy pole screws (with more steel) and mix-matched coils which highlight the response of the magnet. This combination of small tweaks provides a perfect sonic match to the man's persona and musicianship.

Tone/Characteristics
Utilizing unique coils and pole pieces, this design provides more clarity while producing some of the punchiest low-mid response in TV Jones line. The classic Setzer sound is slightly overdriven yet clear, with a defined and tight/punchy low end. With slightly higher output than a TV Classic, the Setzer Signature punches through a mix with ease and dexterity.

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.

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 this pickup due to low coil output but some say it works well to their taste. 4-Conductor wire is also convenient for custom switching, such as pickups combined in series or parallel.

Special Considerations
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.

Mounting into a traditional humbucker rout? The EM1 Gibson-style Mounting Ring makes it as simple as swapping a normal humbucker. EM2 Gretsch-style Mounting Rings are also available for new builds or mods.

    Features:
  • Classic Brian Setzer tone
  • Easy to install in many pickguards and humbicker routs
  • 4-conductor wiring for coil-tapping, series/parallel, and phase switching
  • Universal Mounting clips, height adjustment screws, compression tubing, and wiring diagram included

Love these PUP's. Crystal clear and Fab when adding dirt. Worth every cent. Did a complete overhaul on a Gretsch 5420, Gavit Wire, Emerson caps & pots, Swicthcraft three way switch, Made a bone nut, fret dressed, swapped the Bigsby B60 to a B6C, GraphTech locking tuners and a Tru Arc bridge. End of the day sounds and plays better than my 6120 for a fraction of the cost. The star of the guitar is the Setzer PUP's. Better than the classics IMO, highly recommend.
