Hi all, Anyone know where to find a good article on how to and what you need to mount a Gretsch FilterTron? Got a good deal on a used one, but not a direct replacement for the blacktop FilterTron in my Electromatic. Thanks!!!
Well, we'll need some more info as Gretsch has used a few different mounting schemes over the years. There are so-called "English Mount" Filtertrons that use two tabs with screw holes that protrude from each side of the pickup, and then there is the more traditional Gretsch mounting which has 4 screws. I don't know whether either one of those is like the Electramatic guitars.
I didn't look, but try the TV Jones website, that's where I'd start looking.

Thanks for responding, good idea about the Tv Jones site. It’s a Gretsch brand HS FilterTron, has 2 holes kinda inline where the the 2 mounting screws would be on standard humbucker, but inside the body area of the pickup itself..
