  • Re. Gretsch Blacktop Filtertrons

    This guitar looks amazing.



    anyone have any experience with those pickups though? how do they compare to typical humbuckers (if we use a PAF tonality as a reference point)?

    Throw them out and put real Filtertrons/TV Jones into the guitar / buy one with those factory-installed.
