PICKUP REPAIRS AND REWINDS
Base Price: $40 Per Coil Poly/$50 Per Coil Plain Enamel/Heavy Formvar
A rewind will generally consist of removing the coil or coils, cleaning up the bobbin, and rewinding to original specifications with appropriate wire. In the more rare case of a pickup that is damaged or severely corroded, a rewind will consist of disassembly, cleaning, reassembly and rewinding. This more thorough process is $60 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.
“My rewound vintage Gibson P-90 sounds fat and fantastic.
Overall tone is sweet and just the right hotness. Hotter than the original and lesser than the Lollar I had in its place. Perfect. My ’65 Gibson ES-125 sounds just like it should.”
This was the first time I had ever had a pickup rewound. Jesse carefully guided me through the process and asked pertinent questions in order to make this pickup into what I wanted.
I admit that I had no idea what to expect; after all, Jesse was rewinding the stock pickup from a $349 Squier Telecaster! I got a great surprise after installation. I could tell that this man loves what he does! It is evident in his work. I was chuffed when I turned the pot to 10 and cranked my Champ 600!
If you have not had this genius rewind a pickup, do yourself a favour and send him one to rewind! You will thank yourself for doing it and thank me for the recommendation!
