Hear ye! Hear ye! The Shep “Tone Priests” who gloriously parted the sky to elevate guitar tone to religion (see our May 29, 2019 product review of their Heartbreaker Humbucker Set and AB Custom Strat Set) have graced the guitar world again to bestow a new pair of wickedly potent humbucker pickups so heinous, you must NOT look directly at them lest you internally combust into a cloud of blue smoke. From this day forth, Sheptone decrees the Wanker and Sweep the Leg humbucker pickups shall reign over the land for all that is deemed … metal.
“New dimensions of guitar tone”
For the apostles of the Super Strat Shredder denomination, the Wanker bridge humbucker and Sweep the Leg neck humbucker pickup set is the burning fire in the sky that will lead you to the promised land of divinely godlike tone. Believe the believers who have already become devoted disciples of Sheptone; it goes beyond the mortal understanding of tonal possibilities. Free your mind of the human world. Hail thy Sheptone creator for the humbucker higher power, copious mids, and uber human keen tone. Feel the power of the supernatural to space glide the Satriani Surfer, the utter destruction of Dimebag, and the Zeus lightning of Hammett. The metal guitar gods seamlessly switch between pickups for an arsenal of brutally potent tones. Join them in the cosmic winds for the unbridled tone and add your name to the list of metal masters like Ford, Batten, Orianthi, Strauss, Batten, Suys, Malmsteen, Gilbert, Lynch, Vai, and Demartini, et al.
