Kauffmann ’60 Blue Shaded Belle


Blue Shaded Belle

From the Kauffmann Authentic Series. Single cut guitar, mahagony body, maple top, two humbuckers. Brutally yet delecately aged to a vintage feel, look and sound. The Sheptone Tribute humbuckers combined with Kauffmann's wiring create heaps of overtone that will inspire you for years. Looking at the tasty slightly darker and blue shaded burst finish we decided to name her Belle.

Sheptone Tribute Series Humbuckers

The Tribute set uses rough finished Alnico 5 (degaussed) magnets, using 57-58 spec 42 Enamel. Resistance may vary from set to set since my winding process goes strictly by the number of turns of wire. Although the originals were never installed in certain positions based on their resistance, this has proven to me be the range of the best sounding pickups in those positions. Tributes come standard with Gibson "Patent Applied For" 49.2mm pole spacing.Sheptone Tributes were carefully designed for the BEST sound through extensive research, winding/re-winding, and comparison testing...

These pickups produce the same beautiful sound as original "Patent Applied For" pickups at a fraction of the price. When in doubt, the Tribute set is the best choice for all around "Patent Applied For" performance for a wide variety of music.
