The pickups use formvar wire and come with either black or white covers.

Nashville, TN (September 22, 2017) -- At the heart of every vintage Teisco or De Armond gold foil is a ceramic bar magnet. Schuyler Dean’s Jazzmaster Gold Foils use a 1/4” thick bar magnet for fat, low-fi vintage tones, and at $90 each they won’t break the bank.

Using scatterwound formvar wire these true single-coils have beautiful, balanced lows and highs. They are wound to 9.3K bridge and 8.4K neck for plenty of power. They come in black or white covers with the gold foil material visible just through the polepiece holes. Jazzmaster Gold Foils come with the following standard features:


  • Hand-assembled in the USA
  • Drop-in replacements for most Jazzmasters
  • Wax potted to prevent microphonics
  • Ideal for any style of music from rock to jazz to country
  • Lifetime manufacturers warranty

Handmade in Schuyler’s Nashville workshop, Jazzmaster Gold Foil pickups carry the following price: $90 each.

How Jeff Tweedy, Nels Cline, and Pat Sansone parlayed a songwriting hot streak, collective arrangements, live ensemble recording, and twangy tradition into the band’s new “American music album about America.”

Every artist who’s enjoyed some level of fame has had to deal with the parasocial effect—where audiences feel an overly intimate connection to an artist just from listening to their music. It can lead some listeners to believe they even have a personal relationship with the artist. I asked Jeff Tweedy what it feels like to be on the receiving end of that.
