Why JGC Pickups
Custom guitar pickups for better sound
At JGC Pickups we make custom, hand-wound guitar pickups. Each coil is scatter-wound by hand to assure the broadest range of dynamics and harmonic content in each coil.
Your tone + our expertise
Winding a guitar pickup by hand is a very tedious process that takes a great deal of experience and technique. However, we put an equal amount of effort into working with each customer to achieve their desired tone.
Less shopping around, more ♫
The current pickup market consists of “one-size-fits-all” guitar pickups. If you are done playing the expensive guessing game of buying pickups over and over, look no further. Speak to an expert at JGC Pickups and we will hit the nail on the head the first time.
What People Are Saying About JGC Pickups
Mike brought my number one Telecaster back to life, literally!
Mike brought my number one Telecaster back to life, literally! The guitar was wasting away in a gig bag, because I’d given up on finding replacement pickups that sounded like the vintage 1960’s pickups that are in it. I spent way too much on old pickups and new pickups, trying to match the sound, but there was just something magic about the set in this particular Tele. On a long shot, I asked Mike if he thought he could replicate the original pickups, and he said, “don’t need to….just send them to me and I’ll measure and rewind them to spec”…and guess what? HE DID! He’s a mad scientist and miracle worker! The guitar sounds exactly the same as it did the last 30 years that its been in my possession. His passion for not only creating wonderful, original pickups, of which I own and use many, is equaled in his skill for maintaining the original integrity and TONE of your vintage pickups in need of rewiring. I recommend him all the time to emailers. He’s the best!
My strat sounds and plays great! It sounds just like Hendrix!
Jeff B., West Chester, PA
Mike rewound the pickups on my ’73 Strat and rewired the guitar back to original spec. I never gave the guitar much thought since I didn’t like the way it sounded. Mike discovered that both the bridge and neck pickups needed rewinding. Now my strat sounds and plays great! It sounds just like Hendrix!
The workmanship is perfect!
Sherman Buschemeyer, Guitar Emporium of Louisville
We have sent a number of pickups to Mike for rewind, including a 1940’s Lapsteel pickup recently, and he is always fast, and extremely reasonable with his pricing. The workmanship is perfect! Will continue to send him our sick pickups!
