The newest version of the popular humbucker fits Jazzmaster-style dimensions.

While not totally new in design, the Regal For Jazzmaster is based on our popular Regal Humbucker, which is in turn based on the idea behind Fender's original Wide Range Humbucker (WRHB) pickups. Due to the larger dimensions of the WRHB design, they have been limited to a small number of guitar models. So we've modified the construction to accommodate for direct installation in Jazzmaster pickup routs to offer that same great tone to even more guitarists. Regal humbuckers offer a fat tone with clear top end sparkle and a vocal mid-range with great note definition. Original vintage instruments equipped with the Fender WRHB featured the same pickup for the neck and bridge positions, which caused an imbalance in tone and volume from the two positions. But we've modified our neck pickup to offer improvement in this area without sacrificing the characteristics that create the signature tone.

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The rising guitar star blends classic and stoner rock, Motown, and more influences with modern pop flourishes in songs replete with fat, fuzzy, fizzy tones from her new Epiphone Sheraton signature.

For so many artists, the return of live shows means the return of the thrill of performing, much-needed income, and, in a way, purpose. The third definitely goes for guitarist Emily Wolfe, who, when asked about her goals, immediately responds, "I just want to play arenas every night for the rest of my life. When I go up there, something could hit me at any point—an emotion that I felt 10 years ago could come out in a bend on the low E."
