TV Jones Classic Bridge Universal Mount (Nickel)


TV Classic Bridge™ 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 TV Jones 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.

Neck: DCR – 4.0k / Inductance – 1.4H


The Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for guitars with standard sized Filter’Trons – with and without “ears” or “clips”. This pickup comes standard with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and 1 Universal Mount Clip Pack – which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to a TV Jones ring or pickguard.

The Universal Mount can be installed two different ways:

  • As a direct drop-in replacement for guitars with standard sized Filter’Trons – use wood screws and compression rubber
  • As a replacement for a humbucker mount pickup – attach clips before installing pickup to ring or pickguard

NOTE: The Universal Mount requires a TV Jones ring (unless suspending from a pickguard)
