Tv classics, Supertron, or Powertron for 335 neck

I want to put a TV Jones in the neck of my 335 and leave the bridge 57 Classic. My Duesenberg has a Tron style in the neck and a PAF style in the bridge and the combo is great. I want to try to do something similar with my 335. I’m not sure if the TV Classic, Supertron, or Powertron would be the right way to go for the 335.

Any insight helpful.
Thanks.

If you want bright and jangly go with the Supertrons. Slightly more body go for the Classics. More beef like a humbucker then Powertrons are the ticket. I think the Powertrons are my favorite.

I have all three. IMO both the Super'tron and Power'tron are PAF'ish, only the TV Classic is genuinely like a Filter'tron. I would consider anything other than the TV Classic to be redundant in a 335.

IMO, what happened is a lot of people have Gretsches and they want them to sound more like Gibsons, and so most of the swapouts are geared towards that.
