By clicking on any one of the images below, you can read the profile for, and purchase any one of the pickup models shown.
If you have heard I offer pick up rewinding services and custom pickup build options, you would have heard right. I have rewound hundreds of pickups for people over the years and would love to help you out if you need pickup rewinding. I offer magnet recharging and magnet swapping for your existing pickup as well as pick-up coil services.
With guitar pick-ups, the magnet is well over half of what you are hearing when it comes to your electric guitar tone. The coils are really nothing more than filters. Filters used to attenuate and accentuate the nuance of your magnets grade and strength, relative to its location under your strings, on your guitar, made from its wood, with its glue joints, with its scale length and tuning. Magnets do play a huge role though. As stated, if you already have a great sounding pickup and magnet set and one of your coils needs rewinding, look no further, I am your guy. I have the experience necessary and the ear to help get you back on the road and sounding superb.
Lil Trees Guitars Line of guitar and bass pickups are all hand wound in Portland, Oregon, USA. I use the best materials available for purchase. I order from places like Texas, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee and North Carolina for the parts and pieces I use in my pickups. I use wax purchased from small, locally based beekeepers to pot my pickups. I will either find the wax for sale around town or discover it while out on camping trips around the pacific northwest. The pickups listed here are my stock wind recipes. The pickups I wind are not just copies of other more famous pickup designs with funky names. Many hours of winding coils, reading coils with special meters, learning what variable a given measurement represents (both on paper and in the ears), learning to control the various variables with coil shape and load, magnet selection, magnet charging technique, wire insulation type and build, wire gauge selection and potting technique have gone into the making of what I am calling my standard model pickups, with funky names.
