Modern Filtertron Bridge

Modern Filtertron Bridge

An overwound bridge position Filtertron, based on the 50's originals, using 43awg formvar wire and oversized AlNiCo 5 magnets, it's wound to roughly 7.4k to give you a bit more volume, bite and thickness, but still bright, clear, sparkly and articulate.

Available with chrome cover, as direct body mount or humbucker mount (also known as "English" mount). Please note this is a direct drop-in replacement for stock Filtertron pickups, not humbucker-sized pickups found on some Electromatic and Streamliner models.

If you are fitting this to a guitar with the three screw mounting, as found on most Electromatics, you will need a mounting adaptor plate. More information at the link below:

As standard this pickup is lighty wax potted to allow a more open and detailed sound, but reduce the chances of any unwanted microphonic feedback.
