Geppetto Guitars is happy to introduce its new vintage style, scatterwound humbucker pickup, The Nomad.
The Nomad is the first pickup to pay homage to the Dry Z pickup, and is the result of cracking the “recipe code” to these infamous pickups that were used in Japanese copies of American guitars produced by Greco and Tokai in the late ’70s and into the ’80s.
The humbucker is another slice of the PAF pie—representing the lowest strength magnet, but a slightly higher resistance than our Camelot humbucker. This results 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, allowing it to perform like a vintage pickup. The DC Resistance is approximately 8.0 K Ohms in the neck pickup and 8.7 K Ohms in the Bridge pickup. 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.
