'57 AccuTron

A Faithfull replica of the amazing original Filtertron® pickups from the late 50's and early 60’s. The ‘57 AccuTron will get your tone as close to a Vintage Filtertron® as is possible.

Wound with 42AWG Heavy Formvar, over vintage accurate nylon bobbins, original #6-40 pole screws and the all important 1/4-inch thick Alnico 5 rough cast magnet. These are completely accurate replicas of the amazing pickups that delivered P.A.F type low-end with Strat like Highs. 

Output - 4/10
Magnets - A5 (Oversized 1/4’’ Thick)
DC Resistance - N 4.4kΩ / B5.0kΩ

Available with original full-length baseplates, or modern ‘English Mount’ baseplates for mounting onto a pickup surround or pickguard achieving greater height adjustment. Standard Pole Spacing is 48.2mm, though wider 51mm spaced pickups can be produced on request.

J-Tron Deluxe

My personally Tweaked version of the classic Vintage Filtertron pickups, that were almost perfect… but not quite.

The J-Tron Deluxe set is more or less the same as a vintage Filtertron, with just a few minor tweaks to really perfect it. It still boast all the vintage accurate materials specified in the ‘57 AccuTron, but with a slightly hotter wind and with upgraded Silver Nickel Baseplates. In terms of tone, the baseplates give more articulate highs, more detailed harmonics and an overall more musical quality, compared to the standard Brass baseplates used in FilterTron’s. Simultaneously the slightly hotter wind gives more depth to the lows and a little more grit in the midrange. What we end up with is a similar balance to an original FIltertron, but with that JPG detail and quality of tone.

Output - 5/10
Magnets - A5 (Oversized 1/4’’ Thick)
DC Resistance - N 5.0kΩ / B5.6kΩ

Available with original full-length baseplates, or modern ‘English Mount’ baseplates for mounting onto a pickup surround or pickguard achieving greater height adjustment. Pole Spacing is either 48.2mm for vintage spaced instruments or 48.2mm- Neck and 51mm-Bridge for modern spaced instruments.
