TV Classic Plus Bridge Humbucker Mount

1 item left

  • tv classic plus - bridge - Universal Mount

    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.

    Tone/Characteristics

    Like a TV Classic but with more attitude, the TV Classic Plus is wound with thinner gauge wire providing 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).

    Installation:

    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.


  • Output/Power

    DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.

    Bridge (only): DCR - 7.8k / Inductance - 2.83H

    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 works well with the TV Classic Plus due to higher coil strength. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is 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.

Better than the sound clips

Purchased these for my Classic Player Special HH Jag since the stock Enforcer pickups were too muddy on their humbucker setting, which is a waste in an instrument with humbuckers. Always liked Chris Cheney so I went with this in the bridge. I purchased the 2-1mount solution from TVJ although it dropped the pickups too low for my cavity and an alternative solution had to be made. Check your dimensions. The info is on here if you need it. I put a classic in the neck and honestly I think this pickup is way nicer. Has more character. Ran it through a JCM800 the first night and then my blackface bassman. Killer tones from each out of a guitar that was, over all, lacking in tone. I was nervous about ruining my guitar with the wrong pickups but I'm glad I spent the money and didn't get a mass produced product. Oh yeah. Give me a job. Thanks for the great pickups!

Just the sound I was looking for

After Malcolm Young died, I decided I needed a guitar to cop some of his sounds (I don't really play any covers). Researched many pickups and decided on the TV Jones Classic Plus. Installed on an ESP LTD H-302 with a Bigsby and before even making any adjustments to the pickup the tone I was looking for was there. AWESOME! I have a GFS Mean 90 in the neck of this guitar, it matches well, but the middle position is out of phase. I may just keep it that way...

Exactly What I Was Looking For

purchased a set of these (Classic Plus - bridge and Power'Tron neck) for my Gibson ES-339 (custom shop) in hopes of turning it into a Gretsch Duo-Jet type sounding guitar for modern contemporary christian music. I could not be happier with the new sound!! No more honk--no more muddiness (guitar originally had gibson 57 classic hum buckers in it). Guitar now makes the tones I was looking for.

Installation was straightforward (I would recommend watching a video or two on how to work on the electronics in a semi-hollow body guitar to anyone attempting this for the first time and having never done it). The TV Jones pickups were a perfect fit!
After installation and adjusting the pickup height, the string balance was spot-on on the new pickups -- the good folks at TV Jones had pre-set the pole pieces perfectly!!

Customer service was fantastic! (Lynne kept me well informed regarding a backorder issue on my particular order).

This is the first review I have EVER written on any product I have purchased. I felt compelled due to how highly satisfied I am with the product, it's craftsmanship, and the great customer service I received. I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND these to anyone who may find themselves in the same boat I was in!

Thanks TV Jones!!
