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.”
