Once you order a pickup you’ll get an automated email confirming what you have ordered. All our pickups are made by me (Glyn) personally so it can take a few days. Once your pickups are tested, packed and ready to be sent we’ll email you with a tracking number. Feel free to contact us at any time or look for your answers here in FAQ.
Read the description, listen to the sound samples and if you’re still not sure just contact me directly or fill in the “need help choosing” form and I’ll talk you through it. Deciding what’s right for you isn’t easy and you want to get it right, we get that.
This is how the wires will look when you receive your pickup. The white is long enough to reach a Fender type switch. All wires are pre-tinned. I use shielded cable to keep the hum down. This is the wiring for Strat, Tele, P90’s, TheTron, Clear View, Mini, Minx, Jazzmaster, bass.
This is the wiring for the Integrity, Cloud Nine, Attitude, Tumatuenga, Draig humbuckers. If you buy a HSS set I will have already reversed the black and green wires and tinned them to make it as easy as possible.
Try us, new things are always in development. We’re always happy to recommend products by other companies if we don’t have what you want. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call +6421 912 678.

Now this really is a FAQ – It’s a very rough guide. Using ohms as a measure of power is a bit like judging the speed of a car by the amount of rpm it’s doing. It’s meaningless without knowing which gear you’re in. Consider the Ohms, the Henry and type of magnet if you like numbers, consider the description if you like words. You can always just get in touch and we’ll talk you through it. Feel free to contact us at any time or look for your answers here in FAQ.
It’s a simple little circuit added on to your volume control to avoid losing treble as you turn the volume down. We give you one when you buy a pickup. It’s up to you if you use it but we like them. Here is some useful information on treble bleeds. FAQ
Short answer, there isn’t one. Here is some useful information on how to decide what height to set your pickup:
The more windings on a pickup the more power it has but also the more bass. The fewer windings, less power and less bass. A lot of playing/listening hours have been put into developing my pickups from myself and various ‘test pilot’ pro players. I feel they are right as they are but if you want a tad more or less I now give you that option. I haven’t given this option for all my pickups because they would simply not sound good enough if they were changed at all. For some designs the sweet spot is quite a fine line. FAQ
TheTron pickup comes with the standard mounting screws for the ‘soapbar’ style mounting known as the ‘universal mounting’. If your pickup is mounted on a humbucker style ring get the adapter plate. We supply all the necessary bolts.
I no longer repair guitars. I did for 25 years but I’m too busy making pickups now. I have compiled a list of good repairers around NZ any of which will be able to help you out. Repair Directory NZ
