TV Jones Ray Butts Ful-Fidelity Filter’Tron Pickups

These pickups are a true-to-original reproduction of the “Ful-Fidelity” filter’Tron pickups invented by the legendary Ray Butts. They were produced according to Ray’s notes and designs as well as according to TV Jones’ several decades comprehensive analysis of the original filter’Tron pickups. They have a tighter bass reproduction and slightly more treble than modern Filter’Tron pickups. The absence of wax potting leads to a more open, three-dimensional sound with unique sparkle and great dynamics.

Verdict

If bling is your thing, then these two quilted maple limited editions are certainly very stylish. They are at the other end of the price scale from the recent Pristine LTD models. However, they will more than likely sound even better than they look.
