Pickup Repairs & Rewinds
Current Lead Time: 15 to 25 Days
From the obscure to the vintage and prized, Revel Custom Pickups will go the extra mile to repair, rewind and/or rebuild your pickup. Repair is always the first priority (unless otherwise directed) so as to retain everything that makes your vintage pickup special. In the event that repair isn’t possible, a basic rewind will generally consist of removing the coil or coils, cleaning up the bobbin, and rewinding to original specifications with appropriate wire. This costs $70 per coil.
*In the more rare case of a pickup that is damaged or severely corroded, our rewind is actually a complete restoration, and will consist of disassembly, cleaning, reassembly and rewinding. This more thorough process is $85 and up per pickup.
In the case of difficult assemblies, new leads, covers, baseplates, potting, and/or additional services additional costs may be incurred. But I try to keep it very affordable and will tell you the cost upfront.
Yes, I can pot or re-pot your pickup! Re-potting is $25 for the first pickup and $5 each additional. I use parafin wax and can use a mixture of parafin and bees wax upon request.
