Sheptone announced the release of their new line of pickups for Tele-style electric guitars.


All pickups are manufactured in the Port Orchard facility and are available immediately. The new model is designed to maintain the tones associated with Tele-style guitars but eliminate the problems often experienced by musicians over the years, the company says.

 

The new Sheptone Tele pickups are of vintage construction featuring either staggered pole pieces or flat-pole blackguard on the bridge pickups. The neck pickup is available with a chrome, nickel or gold cover. The bridge pickup is wound using #42 enamel wire with a standard resistance set of 7.6K, and the neck to 7.3K with #43 enamel wire. Alnico 5 magnets are standard on both. Pickups are wound to eliminate the large volume difference between the pickups of a typical telecaster set. Sheptone does allow custom orders, making Alnico 2 magnets and custom windings available upon request. The neck pickup is reverse wound and reverse polarized to eliminate noise and then is potted upside down to completely eliminate squeal by filling the airspace with wax. To further reduce feedback, the bridge pickup is potted in wax as well.


Pricing

MSRP start at $90 each or $169 per pair.
