Geppetto Guitars Introduces the Nomad Humbucker

A vintage-style, scatterwound pickup.

Taylor, TX (May 2, 2017) -- Geppetto Guitars is happy to introduce its new humbucker pickup, The Nomad, a vintage-style, scatterwound pickup. The Nomad is the first pickup to pay homage to the Dry Z pickup. The Nomad is the result of cracking the code to the infamous Dry Z pickups that were used in Japanese copies of American guitars produced by Greco and Tokai in the late 1970s and into the 1980s. It's another slice of the PAF pie that represents the lowest strength magnet but a slightly higher resistance than our Camelot humbucker resulting in the clearest voicing possible. The Nomad proudly wears an aged nickel cover with double black bobbins. The Alnico 3 magnets have been slightly discharged so that it will perform like a vintage pickup. The DC Resistance is approximately 8.0K in the neck pickup and 8.7K in the bridge. Wax potting is available upon request.

Geppetto Guitars Owner, Mike O’Donoghue, worked on the development of The Nomad for almost a year. The result is a visually beautiful and audibly stunning finished product, not a work in progress. This is a pickup that will leave both your eyes and your ears happy. “We give your guitar its voice, but you make it sing.”

The Nomad, along with all of their other pickups are For sale directly from Geppetto Guitars via telephone (512) 630-8423, online and at Austin Vintage Guitars. Geppetto pickups are available Japan exclusively from Koiz Guitar Japan. For Geppetto pickups in Europe contact our distributor at www.mij-guitars.be

The Nomad pickups are $110 each /$220 per set.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
