Schuyler Dean Unveils Gold Foil Pickups

Based on vintage foils, the pickups aim to capture the character of the originals.

Nashville, TN (July 4, 2015) -- Schuyler Dean Pickups has unveiled a new pickup model based on vintage gold foils. Dean’s Gold Foils were designed to capture the character of the originals and come at an affordable price. At $90 each they are completely handmade and come mounted in a standard humbucker-size body to fit in a wide variety of guitars.

Using 44 gauge wire, the coils are scatterwound around bar magnets mounted perpendicular to the strings. The tone is true single coil; warm, yet twangy and clear. Sets are wound slightly hotter in the bridge position for balanced volume when switching between pickups.


  • Hand-assembled in the USA
  • Available for any humbucker guitar
  • Wax potted to prevent microphonics
  • Ideal for any style of music from rock to jazz to country
  • Lifetime manufacturer's warranty

$90 Retail
