TV Jones Pickup - Magna'Tron with Universal Mount - Magnatron


TV Magna'Tron With Universal Mount

The TV Jones Magna'Tron blends DeArmond-style twang and single coil spank. This special tone is the result of staggered cylinder magnets. The tone is quite aggressive with a quick attack and with exceptional pop and clarity. With two coils there is a hint of compression on the high end and no 60-cycle hum.

Bridge: Features two extra-tall coils with wider pole-to-pole spacing to provide a good balance of output and clarity 

Neck: Similar coils with less magnet wire result ina sweeter and clearer tone

Bright and sensitive with less inductance. Tight, clear bass respoonse with dynamics. Similar to single coil tone. 

Likeness/Derived from: 
TV Classic but with more clarity and DeArmond style tone

   The groundbreaking, patent-pending design combines both the standard No Ears "NE" Filter’Tron Mount and the company’s English "EM" Mount into one housing, allowing TV Jones pickups to now be installed in a larger variety of guitars.

“This housing is all about making things easier and simpler for everyone concerned,” said Thomas “TV” Jones. “Ordering and installation are now a piece of cake – simply choose your finish and position and you’ll be good to go. Our Authorized Dealers and worldwide network of Custom Builders are ecstatic about the simplicity the Universal Mount™ brings them. We are sure our customers will appreciate it, too.”
TV Jones pickups will now ship with all necessary mounting screws, compression foam, and “clips” for both Wood Screw and Suspended Mount installations.
