TV Jones PowerTron Neck Universal Mount (Nickel)


Power’Tron™ Neck Pickup – Universal Mount™

The Power’Tron was born out of our desire to create a pickup that has the character of a PAF-style humbucker yet retains the essence of a Filter’Tron. It sounds a little bit darker and somewhat gnarlier, with more windings – as much as a PAF humbucker – for hotter output.


Mixing the vintage tone of a golden-age PAF with the rockabilly twang of a late-’50s Filter’Tron. Full body and a clear top end that is naturally dynamic. Digging in reveals a chunky low-end breakup paired with a barky top-end grit that sounds amazing through a tube amp. This is a great choice if you like the overall Filter’Tron sound but want more guts and glory than usually provided by lower output pickups.


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

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)
