Super’Tron

Shown in English Mount with Modified Gretsch ring

Clear Classic Tone with Smooth Sustain

The TV Jones Super’Tron is a replica of the original early 1960’s prototype design. It is very similar to the TV Classic, but with steel blades instead of pole screws. The blades provide a larger magnetized surface area, producing greater inductance. The resulting tone retains the TV Classic clarity, but with a bold and full broadband punch.

Bridge: Blades are milled with a radius for superior string-to-string balance.
DC Resistance: 4.8K | Inductance: 3.5H

Neck: Made with flat blades to keep the tone clear and warm.
DC Resistance: 4.0K | Inductance: 2.55H

TONE / Characteristic:

Similar to the TV Classic but a thicker and bolder tone. Warmer than mid 1960's Super'Trons with laminated blades. The Super'Tron neck is very clear and warm.

BEST FOR:

  • Rock n' Roll
