New Filtertrons from DiMarzio!

This is unexpected, and very welcome:

The SD/PAF retrofits in 'tron housing are smart, but I'm especially interested in their own take on the actual Filtertron sound. They're always been great at taking a classic and subtly improving it.

Looks interesting, although I don’t have a guitar for that.

It looks like it’s s all F tron sized.  Is that radically different than standard humbucker size?

Same length, a bit narrower. They fit into humbucker routes and you can buy the right rings to cover the empty space from TV Jones.

The DC resistances on the New'Trons are almost twice as high as the originals. I wonder whether DiMarzio used 43 gauge wire compared to 42 gauge in the originals.

Cool that they offer several models to choose from.

And the description says they are the original size and dimensions so Amplifuzz is right.
