Cool Classics – These are underwound humbuckers for a sweet smooth articulate tone. Recommended for semi-hollow or hollow bodies or guitars with a through-body neck.
Classics – For those who love the sound of vintage humbuckers. These are wound slightly hotter than the Cool Classics, with a different magnet for the neck pickup for added midrange. The bridge pickup has the bite you want, while the neck pickup is creamy without ever sounding too muddy.
Sonic60s - Single coil pickups built in the style of classic Strat pickups. Wound between 6 and 7k.
SuperSonics – Overwound single coils. Same as the Sonic60s, but wound to approximately 8k.
LSJ Pickups – Handwound single coil pickups for bass. Built in the style of vintage J Bass pickups

All Jeppson pickups are handwound using my homemade winder. This is how Fender made their pickups up to about the mid-60s. Personally, I think machine wound single coils sound dull and void of any character. Gibson humbuckers have always been machine wound. Handwound humbuckers have a clearer sound than their traditional machine wound counterparts. If you want a sound closer to a traditional humbucker, just roll the treble down a notch. The windings on the individual coils of Jeppson humbuckers are intentionally mismatched, with the slug side wound slightly hotter. If you are buying these as replacement pickups for a guitar you own or are assembling, be sure the screw side of the neck pickup should always be mounted closest to the neck, and the screw side of the bridge pickup is closest to the bridge for the best tonal response. It will make a difference. Because the coils are slightly mismatched, these will not be quite as hum-free as factory pickups, but the difference is a large part of what makes them really sing.
