Hand Wound Pickups
We launched our range of hand-wound pickups at the end of February 2011. Each is created one at a time, with care, in our workshop in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. We have demo guitars fitted with most models of pickup so you can test and choose the ones for you.
Whether it's late 60's-style Strat pickups, overwound P90's, or a T-Top-style humbucker, we can wind them to your exact specs as you chase the sound in your head!
Strat pickups- £65.00 each, £180.00 per set
Tele pickups- £70.00 each
Humbuckers- £80.00 each (open), £100.00 each (covered)
P90- £75.00 each
If you're unsure as to what kind of wind/magnet/wire you'd like, we're happy to discuss and spec up the perfect pickup for you!
If you're looking for more specific mods for your instrument, by all means bring it in and we shall give you a quote. We are able to source parts, or you may supply the parts yourself and we shall carry out the job for you!
All setups/modifications are paid for upon completion.
Check out some of the modifications we've done for customers recently! Whether you've a headstock break that needs repairing, pickup cavities filling-in in prep for a full refinish, or even a Les Paul you fancy giving the Mick Ronson treatment- we do it all!
Installing Varitone switches on 335's is one of our most popular modification requests recently- it really opens up the possibilities of these gorgeous guitars!
