These vintage-style pickups use 43 AWG plain-enamel wire and vintage-correct bobbin bringing output to 9K ohms in the bridge and 7.9K ohms in the neck.

Nashville, TN (January 10, 2019) -- These vintage-style Tele pickups feature overwound coils for more output and mids. This makes for a great blues set to drive your amp harder to break up. The open neck pickup cover allows for more clarity and reveals hand beveled and polished poles. Excellent note definition and attitude for a wide variety of playing styles.

43 AWG plain-enamel wire is scatterwound onto each vintage-correct bobbin bringing output to 9K ohms in the bridge and 7.9K ohms in the neck. Hand beveled and polished poles are degaussed to avoid harshness and intonation issues. Vintage-correct copper-plated baseplate and cotton coil wrap on the bridge complete the package.

  • Hand-assembled in the USA
  • Aggressive vintage tone
  • Wax potted to prevent microphonics
  • Reverse-wound/reverse-polarity to cancel hum
  • Lifetime manufacturer’s warranty

Handmade in Schuyler’s Nashville workshop, Moonshine pickups are $205/set as pictured.

A newly designed koa wonder that packs a punch.

Incredibly easy to play. Well-balanced tone.

Not as visually stunning as other koa models.


Taylor 724ce

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
