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.
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
The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for guitars with standard sized Dynasonic/DeArmond 2000 style pickups. This pickup comes with two pieces of foam shims for height adjustment. DeArmond Mounting Screws are sold separately if necessary.
This pickup is shipped with standard 2-conductor wire.
Dynasonic/DeArmond Replacement: The DeArmond Mount is a direct drop in replacement for guitars with Vintage DeArmonds, Dynasonics, and most other DeArmond 2000 style pickups.
Gretsch G6128TDS 2020 and newer: The pickups in this guitar are not the same size (height) as Vintage DeArmonds or older DynaSonics. TV Jones T-Armond pickups will not fit this guitar.
Filter'Tron Replacement: Replacing Filter'Tron-style pickups with DeArmond Mount pickups is not optimal.
Mounting Screws: DeArmond Mounting screws are sold seperately because most people use the ones already on their guitar. If you need new or extra screws, you can find Dearmond Mount screws in our hardware section.
TV Jones handcrafts your pickup at the time of order. Generally orders ship within seven to ten business days.
