    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

    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!

    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!

  • One of our dearest customers, Gary, simply loves his Tokais- so we had this bridge cover installed and engraved with a 'T' rather than an 'F'- it looks absolutely fantastic!
  • Headstock breaks are never a welcome event, but don't worry- we can repair and refinish so that you'd never know they occured! Check out this repair done on an Epiphone LP.
  • We can wind pickups to your specs- James had these Firebird pickups built to the same spec as the Johnny Winter signature set, and they sounded fantastic!
