A couple of weeks back I installed a set of your ‘attitude’ Pickups (18k bridge etc). I was really impressed ..for such hi gain they sounded nice and open and with a great singing type tone, harmonics jumping out on any note played …and this was on a thin neck floyd rose equipped ibanez …turned this normally toneless guitar into a decent instrument ….happy customer [October 2020]
Attitude Bridge –
Suffice it to say it’s exceeded expectations. Every single tonal dynamic has been enriched and enhanced. It delivers on everything you promised. Tight, punchy bottom end with soaring singing highs. Well done sir, it’s truly superb. As soon as I can I’ll order a second. [1 September 2020]
Cruel Mistress Bridge, Black Sand Neck –
Oh brother. I can’t get over the sound. P90 is so beefy and just growls and the tone on that tele pup… Totally awesome. The only thing that sucks is my playing… I need to practice harder. With those pickups there is nowhere to hide [2 September 2020]
Strat bridge pickup;
Glyn wound me a new single coil bridge pickup for my Strat, some time around 2000 and I still have the pickup in the guitar now. I was after a very particular sound, more like a hum-bucker really and after listening carefully to my comments, he took the pickup back no less than three times and rewound it in order to get it just right!
It’s one of the very best pickups on any guitar I own and I would highly recommend MrGlyn’s pickups to anyone. Glyn has an in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of pickup design along with an incredible eye for detail and always makes sure everything is done to the highest standard. He’s also a really nice bloke!
I wish him every success with MrGlyn’s Pickups.

I recently finished a guitar project putting together a heavily reliced Fender Strat. I was looking for some real classic sounding pickups and settled on Mr Glyn’s ‘Tui’ pickup set. I couldn’t be happier…they have got some serious tone!
I’ve installed Mr Glyn’s pickups in four guitars…so far. It’s obvious the years of fine tuning that has gone into each model. They hit that perfect sweet spot which will take your tone to the next level. And, made in NZ!!!! https://www.hamuranaguitarworks.co.nz/
High quality, hand built scatter wound pickups. Fab tone, dynamically responsive, hugely versatile. Stuck an orange drop cap on the Tele set and you’ll get everything from an ear splitting Country twang to a warm caramel Jazz. Hot enough to push those valves for a fat overdrive too. Couldn’t recommend enough. https://www.davesguitar.co.uk/
Tui Set –
Mr Glyn’s pickups brought my James Tyler Strat to life. I never felt the original pickups did it justice, and spent a long time searching for pickups that would bring it to its full potential. I tried a number of the best-known manufacturers, but none of them really did it. Glyn listened, made suggestions and got it right first time. His Tui pickups have brought out the woodiness and airiness in the sound that I was looking for, whilst also having the right amount of bite. Glyn’s care and attention to detail, his passion and wealth of knowledge have made these my pickups of choice. To my knowledge, the only NZ pickup manufacturer, and in my experience these are up there with the best in the world. They’ve been a closely guarded secret for a good while, delighted to see these reaching a wider audience! https://www.aucklandguitarschool.co.nz/
If you want custom made pickups, you can’t beat being able to discuss what you want with the maker. I have tried both Tele and Strat sets from Mr Glyn, as good as any, and reasonably priced https://www.facebook.com/pg/www.thegunsmiths.co.nz/about/
Bought a set of Mr Glyn’s Blue Sky humbuckers and they are awesome! These pickups do everything from clean to blues rock to screaming distorted rock tones. So great to just roll off the volume, have it clean up but still stay loud and defined. My guitar is now super versatile and sounds great! Thanks 👍😎 https://keningtonmusic.com/
