Handmade pickups designed for crunch and sustain.

If you're looking for an over-the-top pickup set that's just outside of the PAF range of tone, look no further than the Sheptone Red Headed Stepchild humbucker set. Designed alongside tone meister Brian Kahanek, these are thick and crunchy with lots of sustain. Each pickup is built by hand with nothing but the material, attention to detail and time it takes to do it right. Resistance may vary from set to set since the winding process goes strictly by the number of turns of wire but DC resistances tend to be around 9.0k for the bridge and 8.0k for the neck.
