TV Jones Classic Neck Pickup Nickel – 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 the 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 bright single-coil & 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 Universal Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for standard sized Filter’trons – with and without “ears” or “clips”. This pickup comes with two pieces of compression rubber, 2 mounting (wood) screws, and the Universal Mount Clip Pack which includes everything you will need to mount the pickups to your ring or pickguard.

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.
