Filter tron without ears
Vintage Alnico V
Made with large magnets and wound to a low output, these are really bright and jangly - perfect for that rockabilly, Chet Atkins twang of yesteryear! Perfect for hollow and solid bodies. Due to the large magnets these are still able to push an amp and are surprisingly versatile despite their low power
Neck 4.1K 1.4H
Bridge 5.1K 2.0H
Vintage/Hot Alnico V
Like the Fletch-o-Tron, but with more power it provides more growl and warmth, while maintaining most of that sparkle. With more power, these will push an amp harder and have a more modern voice.
Neck 5.8K 2.4H
Bridge 6.5K 3.0H
Modern Alnico V
Using the design of the Fletch-o-tron but with much more meat on the bones!
This retains the clear high ends and that low end presence but with more in the mid range and higher output. Too hot for the neck, the bridge is a powerhouse of tone! Full mids and tight bass.
Bridge 8.0K 4.5H
Included - See description
