Sheptone Releases Tele Pickups

Sheptone’s latest pickups are based on designs from the Fender Telecaster. 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 V magnets are standard, with Alnico II magnets available as an option. Both are wound to eliminate large differences in output volume between them. The neck pickup is reverse-wound and reverse-polarized, to eliminate noise, then potted upside-down to eliminate squeal. To further reduce feedback, the bridge pickup is potted in wax, as well.
