La Cabronita Build

29.06.2015
I bought a pair of these for a two pickup La Cabronita build. I had a lot of trouble finding pickups for this that didn't involve shipping from the US to the UK, which can be expensive.

After reading some reviews comparing the Gretsch to the TV Jones, I was luck enough to get to try the two brands side by side with the help of some friends who have done their own builds. To me, the Gretsch are the better of the two.

The neck pickup is smooth and very usable and still has some of that chime and twang to it. they are very responsive and less harsh and microphonic than the TV Jones. They sound great clean and even better when you give them some drive. overall I'm very happy with these and will definitely use them on my next La Cabronita build!!

Installation was easy as the body I had was a proper La Cabronita body with the correct size pickup holes.

Awesome Filtertron sound!

SachaS, 04.02.2015
I put this into a partscaster thinline cabronita which I built which sounds incredible open with this humbucker. More open than blacktops 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 P90s than PAF style humbuckers. 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 anytime soon, they will be staying in my cabronita for good.

Highly recommended.

PS this review relates to a pair of these (bridge and neck)
