Sheptone’s 6T8 pickups for hollow or semi-hollow body guitar are designed to be transparent and allow the primary wood tones to come through. 6T8 uses a long rough cast Alnico 5 magnet, as opposed to a short machined magnet to help give it gritty growl and clear, balanced tone. Wound with #42 poly wire on butyrate bobbins, the neck pickup averages 7.4k DC resistance and bridge pickup averages 7.8k DC resistance.
