Description
TV Classic Neck™ Pickup - Universal Mount™
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.

Tone/Characteristics
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.

Output/Power
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

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 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.

Special Considerations
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.
Replacing other models, such as the Blacktop Filter'Tron, Braod'Tron, Gretsch-Buckers, and humbuckers will require additional mounting hardware. Installing in post-2012 Electromatics, Streamliners, Gretsch 5120/5122, Gretsch 5420/5422 - early models, and Pre-2012 Pro Jets, may need additional hardware, mounting rings or modifications.
