Pickup Rewinds

I outsource these repairs to Deacci Pickups in Newry. Quotes for any work will be passed on to the customer in advance. Their prices always seem good to me. I also charge for postage and packaging when doing this and I only use track and trace from An Post.

Installing an undersaddle pickup will raise the instruments action slightly; prices include lowering the saddle to compensate for this unless otherwise requested.

   Active Pickups (EMG)

Switching from passive to active pickups requires installation of control pots, output jack and a battery. If no battery is provided, a Duracell battery will be added to the bill. Prices do not include routing or modification of the body. Newer pickups feature a solderless quick connect system, this can be bypassed for a traditional soldered connection if desired.
