I wanted to hear the Broad'Tron pickups against my Filter'Trons, especially in my Jet FT. The difference is a hotter output and a bump in the bottom-end. Same great sound as a Filter'Tron. Once again, great build with a flawless finish. I did think (from the pictures) that the blue was a solid colour and lighter than it is. It's also metallic and I was very happy about that at the unboxing. Another great Gretsch!
