Gretsch FilterTron pickup Set Chrome


Gretsch FilterTrons, created in 1957, are dual-coil "humbucking" pickups, developed by Ray Butts at the request of Chet Atkins, who did not like the older Gretsch Dynasonic pickups. Historical accounts indicate that the Gretsch humbucker design actually predates Gibson's better known humbuckers, but Gibson filed for -- and received -- a patent first. FilterTrons typically have less twang than a Dynasonic. Brian Setzer usually plays with FilterTrons (also called "Filters"), and George Harrison's Country Gentleman was equipped with FilterTrons. Chet Atkins was the first FilterTron user, since Butts developed them for him, and he continued to use variations throughout his tenure as a Gretsch player. This is a Gretsch FilterTron pickup set for bridge and neck position, in chrome.
