Clear Classic Tone with Smooth Sustain
The TV Jones Super’Tron is a replica of the original early 1960’s solid steel prototype design. It is very similar to the TV Classic, but with steel blades instead of pole screws. The blades provide a larger magnetized surface area, producing greater inductance. The resulting tone retains the TV Classic clarity, but with a bold and full broadband punch.
“Probably the most under-rated pickup ever”

The bridge position is great for a thicker, in your face statement, while the neck position is known to be smooth and clear. Even great for jazz. With gain, the neck position can really sustain. A popular combination is a TV Classic Plus bridge, and a Super’Tron neck.
