La Cabronita Build Heaven

29.06.2015
I purchased a pair of these for a two pickup La Cabronita build. I'd spent a long time searching the web to find some of these that weren't shipping from the US to UK to avoid all the tax and extra costs. Thomann does it again.

I chose these over the TV Jones because when I tried two friends guitars I was able to compare the two brands directly. To me, the Gretsch had the bright Tele sound without the the harshness of the TV Jones.

Build quality is obviously top draw and these things look great when they're installed.

Installation was very straight forward. I had a La Cabronita body with the correct routes already cut, if you're doing your own then it might be more difficult

Sound quality is great. these pickups clean up nicely but give them a little bit of drive and they growl. fantastic response!! I wouldn't look any further than these for your build or upgrade.

Awesome Filtertron sound!

SachaS, 03.02.2015
I put this into a partscaster thinline cabronita I built which sounds incredibly open with this humbucker. More open than black tops but not as punchy. Perfect for a thinline guitar!

I'm very impressed especially for the price. I can't see how TV Jones could be any better and they are a lot more money. These filtertrons are very articulate and probably sit closer to a P90 than a PAF style humbucker. They really sparkle which isn't something you can say for PAFs.

With gain they are really raunchy and produce a lot of pinch harmonics with ease and little gain. AC/DC riffs just roll out of these pickups! I certainly won't be changing them any time soon, they will be staying in my cabronita for good!

Highly recommended.
