Hot Rod Pickups
The Sound of Your Guitar
The concept of integrating vintage pickups and replica’s designed to recreate the classic range of sounds is the center of the Hot Rod Guitar.
Hot Rod Guitars use a wide range of pickups, custom selected to give each instrument a beautiful and unique tone.
We work with several expert winders to get rewound antique pickups and new pickups, in both single and double coil configurations.
Brands: Seymour Duncan, TV Jones, Fralin, Lollar, Fender, Mojotone, Teisco, DeArmond, Rio Grande, DiMarzio
The visual of the guitar is customized in an effort to support and enhance the sonic concept of the instrument.
The Bridge Pickup is an opportunity to recreate two classic tele sounds: twangy or hot.
You can also utilize a humbucker or p9- for other variation in the bridge.
The Neck Pickup is an opportunity to get a single coil p90 or traditional tele sound. This pickup should match the bridge pickup: if the bridge is hot, the neck should be hot; if the bridge is twangy, the neck should match in terms of output.
Special note: Studio players require the middle position to be quiet.
