Gemini Pickups


I build and repair guitar pickups. I love unusual pickups, especially Japanese pickups from the 60's and 70's. I would say that I specialize in making these pickups usable while maintaining the character of original pickup. Somebody has to love these pickups. This usually involves a hand rewind to more purposeful resistance levels with 42, 43 or 44 awg magnet wire. If I have to make a new bobbin I will on my laser cutter or 3D printer. If it's a pair of pickups I'll wind them rwrp for hum cancelling when used together and adjust their outputs for better balance. Some pickups get cleaned up and rewound. Some pickups get totally rebuilt, changing the entire internal structure of the pickup. The laser cutter and 3D printer along with a large selection of NOS magnets allows me to do pretty much anything. Look cool. Sound cool. I prefer the breath, texture and acoustic response of unpotted pickups, as most of these were, but it's not the best choice in every situation. Therefore, I offer wax and lacquer potting. Check out what I have and if you want to make something custom give me a shout. I look forward to working with you.
