The Blue Sky Humbucker Set

Allman Brothers alnico4 dickey betts electric Gibson guitar humbucker les paul paf patent applied for pickup sheptone

Inspired by the tones of the Allman Brother’s Dickey Betts, the Blue Sky set is an authentic P.A.F. style pickup with alnico 4 magnets. The alnico 4 is what gives you that warm, smooth tone. I build every single one with nothing but the finest material, the attention to detail, and the time it takes to do it right. They will be the last set you ever buy.  Unless, of course, you own more than one guitar.

  • German nickel silver cover without the copper layer for transparent tone – just like the originals
  • Rough finished, degaussed A4 magnets for softer notes and warmth
  • My own proprietary butyrate bobbins insure a coil and tone consistent to the originals every single time
  • 42AWG plain enamel wire wound to my specific number of winds and tension is what really sets mine apart from the others
  • Vintage spec’d German nickel silver baseplates with long feet accommodate even the biggest height adjustments
  • Vintage braided wire to stay true to the authenticity of the originals
  • Standard Gibson P.A.F. 49.2mm pole spacing
  • 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 8.4k for the bridge and 7.8k for the neck
