What is a Guitar Pickup?

Guitar pickups are simply microphones (transducers for you,”educated players”) that “pick up” or “sense” the vibrations of the strings of your electric guitar. They convert the vibrations into sound that can be boosted with an amplifier. The “quality” of the sound produced depends on how well they are made.

The reason we have more than one guitar “Pickup Manufacturer” is because each one claims to be able to do it better. Some do and some don’t.

How Does it Work?

A guitar pickup contains one or more magnets inserted into a bobbin. The bobbin is made of magnetic poles, cutout paper stand-offs and wound with conductive wire. The device is able to transform the mechanical energy (string vibrations over each magnetic pole-piece) into electrical energy. The energy goes through the selector switch, the volume control then out to your amp. A guitar amp transforms the electrical energy back into mechanical energy and sends the newly transformed signal through your speaker as sound waves.

Ceramic Pickups

Ceramic pickups are sometimes marginalized by some alnico users. However, ceramic magnets are just as important for tone-seekers as any alnico magnet version . Metal, prog-rock, hard-rock, blues and other players will often choose the DiMarzio Super Distortion for example.

Just about all of EMG‘s active pickups utilize high-output ceramic magnets in the circuit. Ceramic magnet pickups provide a great punchy bass response, loud solid mid-range, and a very hot output. The next step up would be active. So play your ceramic pickups with pride and don’t be swayed by anyone else.

The real value that Haywire Custom Guitars offers you is our small-scale luthery, guitar repairs,  guitar builds and modifications. With greatly individualized attention to pots, hardware, functionality, ease of use, longevity, tone and play-ability, pros can own a custom guitar packed with lots of attention and details of what they really need and want, rather than, say, settling for trying to play an unready guitar “off the rack” in a music store.  A luthier (/ˈluːtiər/ LOO-ti-ər) is someone who builds or repairs string instruments generally consisting of a neck and a sound box. The word “luthier” comes from the French word luth, which means lute.

Instead of just using “one manufacturers products” in our guitars we use the best of all manufacturers including, but not limited to just our own parts. You’ll get what YOU want in your guitar.
