Sheptone is now producing the Jazzbucker, a custom humbucking pickup that will fit into the Jazzmaster guitar without any modifications.
The Jazzmaster guitar is originally manufactured with single coil pickups that have a size and shape unique unto themselves. Their flat and wide coil design differs from the more common high and tight single coil pickups on the market today. This distinct size and shape of the original design limits guitar players from experimenting with new tones, preventing them the opportunity to modify or replace their pickups without negatively affecting the instruments value, Sheptone explains.
The Sheptone Jazzbucker is designed to let musicians install humbucker pickups to achieve new tones without changing the looks, the pickguard or body of the original guitar.
The Sheptone Jazzbucker uses butyrate bobbins, rough finished Alnico magnets, 42 plain enamel wire, and standard Jazzmaster pole spacing. The Jazzbucker is available in all standard Sheptone humbucker models; Tribute, AB Custom, Brian Kahanek Signature, Blue Sky, and Heartbreaker. Each set includes mounting hardware and choice of custom-drilled cream or black plastic Jazzmaster covers.
