Handmade in our pickup shop, we use the highest quality parts, along with vintage winding machines and techniques
Anderson Guitarworks has been making pickups even longer than guitars!
As Tom recalled in Premier Guitar, July 2010:
"The first year, 1984, I ran the company from my garage, and the plan was to just make bodies and necks. I wasn’t planning on being a guitar manufacturer. What fed our family that first year was that Schecter Japan needed American-made pickups. The American Schecter factory closed a few months after I left, and nobody knew how to make pickups. Schecter Japan contacted me and we sat down at Carl’s Jr. and made a deal for me to make them 300 Strat pickups. I set up a little pickup-making shop in the kitchen of our house. After I got through making necks and bodies in our garage during the day, we sat up making pickups every night. That first year we lived on those pickups, and we still make them to this day."
Hand made in our pickup shop, we use the highest quality parts and cutting edge technology, along with vintage winding machines and techniques. Yes, in addition to electric guitars, we make the best electric guitar pickups in the world as well!
All pickups come wired with leads that can be soldered into any guitar. Please contact your Anderson Dealer for installation.
