From the obscure, vintage and prized, Revel Custom Pickups goes the extra mile to repair, rewind and/or restore 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 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. We always aim to keep it very affordable and will always tell you the cost upfront.
We also offer 3d printing capabilities to recreate covers, bobbins and like plastic parts that would be otherwise unobtainable. This service consists of designing, printing and finishing, and is billed per shop hour.
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.
