[NAMM] Sheptone Blue Sky Pickups
Sheptone Guitar Pickups announced the release of their revised “Blue Sky” pickups.
The Blue Sky set is a set of humbucker pickups built to emulate the tone of Dickey Betts’ goldtop guitar and appropriately named after the Allman Brothers Band hit song, “Blue Sky." To add vintage appeal, the Blue Sky set is also available in a fully-aged finish at an additional cost, the company says.
Alnico 4 Magnets and a different coil offset were selected to attain the "drier" tone of these specific pickups, according to Sheptone. Each bobbin is molded from vintage PAF bobbins. The nickel-silver base plates are reverse engineered from a collection of vintage models.
