6136T White Falcon
Need advice on above,I recently purchased the above White Falcon and will be taking to my tech to have it set up asap,I need some advise or suggestions with respect to the Filtertrons,should I replace with TV Jones or stick with the stock Filtertrons. Thanks
That is such a subjective decision. I love the HD Filtertrons on my Falcon for Blues but I have also ordered a Black Phoenix with TV Jones Classics... variety is the spice. I think I'd leave it and play it, maybe with a Tru-Arc first. If you like it with your amp for your music then why change. Can always change your mind later. Oh and I do like it with the Nocturne Atomic Brain into the Peavey Delta Blues Amp. So many variables make the pickup only one of the sound shaping features. You need it to sound good for your style so give the Filtertrons a chance first is my best advise.
I also have a Black Phoenix and the TVJ Classics and 2 1/5 years after the purchase, am still surprised on how versatile those PuPs are . Of course I get the Setzer Twang but also am able to dial into a very "T-Bone Walker-esque" woodsy Blues sound. Mess around with a few settings on my Tech 21 amp and I get a snarly growl out of it. With that said, my favorites are the TVJs. However, being that I'm not one for mods and also very much liking the filtertrons, I probably would stick with what came with the guitar......it's one helluva nice axe.
Just fool around with the pole pieces until you hear what you like. They are great sounding guitars straight out of the box.
I've left mine stock and been happy with it.
Adjust the pole pieces and you will really be suprised.
stick with the stocks inless you KNOW you want the TV's...
it really is "golden ears" apples/oranges.....

I liked the stock "HS" pups in mine, but, I like the sound of the "Classics" more.
The "HS" Filters are just a tad bit "darker" sounding than the Classics. Not a bad thing, just depends on your taste of music and what amp you're using.
My ears prefer the Classics and they will be staying in mine.
