Filtertron® Replacement Pickup
Wound to vintage specs


Years ago I scored a load of NOS Filtertron pickup parts from Duke Kramer including blank bobbins, bar magnets and such. As my supply of NOS parts ran down I set out to have them recreated to those NOS vintage specs. I use those parts to make these pickups. So unlike some of the other modern Trons mine have the full height bar magnets, not the thinner P-90/humbucker magnet, and definitely NOT ceramic magnets. So if you are in need of custom wound Filtertrons let me know. This one is stock wound at 4.12k but I have wound these all the way up to 12.5k.
I still have a small quantity of the NOS parts strictly for Gretsch restoration work.
