A hod-rodded Filter'Tron that fits in any guitar
TV Jones Universal Mount let's you take this classic pickup to a whole new level.
This bigger, badder, older sibling to the TV Classic is a bridge position only pickup that packs a mighty punch. Using thinner gauge wire, it saturates quicker with punchy mids but keeps that "Classic" Filter'Tron vibe.
Like a TV Classic but with more attitude, the TV Classic Plus is wound with thinner gaugewire providing a slightly rounder top-end and touch of more output. Many players wish for a Filter'Tron that has "more" to it's sound—this pickup fills that need very well. Installing the TV Classic Plus with a Super'Tron paves the way for some serious Chet Atkins glory (check out his '59 Country Gentleman) but is also a wonderful combination that brings out some of the best sounds in our line (and secretly one of TV's favorite combinations).
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.
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.
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.
