    Recently picked up a cool Gretsch in a local trade. He guy told me this is a PowerTron at the neck and a Classic at the bridge. The Classic thing seems correct, but given the pole pieces isn't this neck pickup a MagnaTron?

    Been verified. It is a Magnatron. Sounds like the "bastard son of a P-90 meets a PAF! Very cool!
