Americans don’t always get British humour, but when they do it makes for a fun day. California-based pickup manufacturer Sheptone has announced its new Wanker humbucker – and I’m pretty sure they know what a wanker is.
Sheptone Wanker humbucker
The new Sheptone Wanker humbucker is aptly named and aimed towards the ’80s-style, hair metal SuperStrat players. It’s s a high-output humbucker and therefore perfect for shredding and over-the-top widdling solos.
The Wanker has a 53mm spacing and is designed for Floyd Rose or Fender-spaced bridges. The pickup also features short legs, four-conductor wiring and Alnico 5 magnets. You can order your very own Wanker in either white, cream or black bobbins or with German silver covers plated in a nickel or gold finishes.
RRP – USD 129
