Upshot 53mm Bridge Humbucker Guitar Pickup
"The combo of the Upshot and the AB single coils was perfect."
-Performer magazine (click HERE to read the review)
The #1 build in our custom shop for years. All of the vintage tone we're known for in a 53mm, low profile package. Now all F-spaced guitars can have that vintage tone in a guitar built with modern day amenities. From your old school strats, to your custom hot rod with a Floyd - we've got you covered. The Upshot stays true to its name—the “upshot” or outcome of years of experience—while adding modern flair to Sheptone’s vintage lineup.
Handmade in the U.S.A., the new Upshot is based off of our famous Tribute model. It has an AlNiCo 5 magnet with 42 plain enamel wire. Because the coil is a bit wider, the dc has been averaging around 9.0 to 9.3. The Upshot is quiet, reliable, and versatile. It can be used in any genre of playing.
The Upshot comes standard with double black coils and 4-wire leads allowing you to split coils - further expanding your tone pallet. Another unique feature of the Upshot is its short feet. Shorter feet are better suited for the sleeker, low-profile guitar designs that today’s players are seeking and guitar builders are making.
