About Vintage Inspired Pickups

The pickups are the heart of any electric guitar. Even if you have the most acoustically resonant, dynamic guitar in the world -- if the pickups can’t translate that to the amp, it’s not worth anything.

Like almost everyone who is into old Gibson guitars, I was constantly searching for the perfect PAF humbucker sound, without having to pay several month’s salaries worth for a pair of originals. As a scientist with a PhD in molecular biology, I strongly refuse to believe in much of the voodoo circulating in the www. However, I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of using new technologies to get the best out of a classic design. Following a conversation with a friend who works as an aerospace engineer, I became interested in analyzing the influence of cryo-tuning of the metal parts on the magnetic field of pickups for electric guitars.

After years of R&D, I am proud to offer my very own take on the legendary PAF tone. By using a unique combination of components, winding patterns, and cryo-treatment method (patent-pending), I created the most transparent, dynamic, yet still warm-sounding set of humbuckers I have ever heard: The Vintage Inspired Pickups® LOVERS® set.

Since then, the LOVERS® and other VIP models have found their way into many guitars, played by beginners to famous pros all around the world.

As a small business, we stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of our products and are proud to offer our pickups both through our website, on Reverb.com, and a select group of dealers in the USA, Canada, and Europe.

We would love to welcome you into our growing circle of friends! Feel free to send us a message and share any thoughts, suggestions, questions, or feedback that you may have.
