I’ve got to be honest, these turned out a lot better than I originally hoped. The AlNiCo V 4.7k (bridge) and 4.2k (neck) handwound Filteron pickups ¬†from Tonefinder give that classic tone with all the bite and depth that you’d expect with the added bonus of amazing colouration thanks to the unique scatter-wound bobbins being slightly mis-matched in windings.

Filterons give that classic Gretsch sound and if wound slightly hotter than ‘normal’ can give all the tone with a very slight drop in highs that some people find a bit too edgy.
