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.

A father-and-son team work together to create an original, futuristic gold guitar, and the result is extremely satisfying.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
