Rewinds, Repairs and Potting
From the obscure to the vintage and prized, Revel Custom Pickups will go the extra mile to repair or rebuild and rewind 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 $60 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 $75 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.
