The pickup that started it all - the TV Classic captures that vintage twang and growl characteristic of the late 1950’s Filter’Tron. Originally designed from an analyzed 1959 “Pat. Applied For” Filter’Tron, the TV Classic is our most popular and most versatile pickup. Popularized and played by many different artists ranging from John Mayer to Brian Setzer.
Between a typical Fender (bright single-coil) & Gibson (darker & thick humbucker) with a unique growl when you dig in. Clean, compressed treble and mids breath life over a tight and controlled low-end.
The Humbucker Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbuckers. This pickup ships with mounting screws and springs for adjustment. To learn more about the Humbucker Mount, check out the Tech Specs tab.
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge: DCR - 4.8k / Inductance - 1.83H
Neck: DCR - 4.0k / Inductance - 1.4H
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 i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
Humbucker Replacement:The Humbucker Mount is a direct drop in replacement for any standard sized humbuckers. The change in mount does not change the sound of the pickup.
I don't know what to say other than I'm amazed at the level of punch and clarity that these pickups offer. They manage to be warm, yet bright and clear. I've got a fairly busy rhythm style and these pups let everything ring out. Couldn't be happier!
That classic sound!
I bought this Classic neck pickup to replace a humbucker in the neck position of a Tradition Jerry Ried Telecaster which was simply too muddy. Definitely did the trick. Considering swapping the bridge position as well, but it's pretty good as it stands now.
I cannot tell you how nice this thing sounds. Clear, dynamic, can handle anything from sparkling cleans to all out shred without getting muddy. Highly recommend!
Tv classic I love you
