"Jesstron" Humbucker Neck

Filtertron pickup in humbucker size for neck position.

More details

This pickup have been designed to have a Filtertron® tone with a standard Humbucker size. The Filtertron® pickups have more "Twang" than a standard humbucker, due to his bigger magnet and lower resistance. The voltage produced by the pickup is similar to a standard humbucker but because is generated in a higher percentage due to the magnet field it sounds more clear and crystalline. To recreate this in a bigger size (standard humbucker) I use thicker magnets and because the bobbins have more space for wire, I use 41 awg plain enamel. The result is a Filtertronesque sound, with a great high end and a tight bass response.
