Pick Up Your Tone!
One of the major changes afoot at Lucas Guitar over the course of this year has been a move to build all of the pickups we fit to our custom guitars ourselves.
Not only does this mean that we can be more responsive to the needs of our clients, but also we can be confident that the electronics we fit – which really do have a major say in your guitar’s tone – are of the highest quality.
Pickup making is an alchemy. In common between all pickups are three main elements – a bobbin, some wire, and a magnet. The most important ingredient, however, is experience. Luckily we have been fortunate enough to be able to work with a long-term pickup maker renowned for their ability to produce great tone, and were able to really hit the ground running and produce some great-sounding pickups from the word go.
If you’re keen to give your instrument a new lease on life, or would like to chat about a Lucas custom build using your own personal pickup preferences, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us using the myriad of communication options listed on our site.
Thanks to all Lucas Guitar customers for supporting our small business in 2014. Take care over the New Year and we’ll look forward to seeing you for more stringed shenanigans in 2015.
