PUSH PUSH 500K POTS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE IN STORE FOR PHASE REVERSAL WITHOUT MODDING YOUR GUITAR

THESE ARE TOTALLY HAND MADE AND UNIQUE TO US, AND YOU WILL NOT GET THESE ANYWHERE ELSE.

how many pickups have you bought from the large manufacturers only to be disappointed and ultimately chucked in the spare parts drawer?. you read the magazine ads, and all the claims, and the player endorsements and were left wondering, how the hell could a player of that caliber use such lame pickups.

we sell our handmade pups for around the same price as the mass produced ones out there.

Which would you choose?

when you buy a pickup from us, you get something which is hand made and take hours to make, one at a time, each carefully tested and calibrated along the way to ensure what it does what it is supposed.  i have been winding and designing pickups for years and have in depth knowledge in their design and achievement of tone. And we have spared no expense in materials and have invested a great deal of money and time in equipment and designing our pickup line. our endorsements are from players like you, and we want YOU to be thrilled and we want you to tell your mates about our stuff.

NO BULL, NO HYPE, JUST WELL DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED PICKUPS

  1. Phil

    Awesome pickups, have a 20 year old Cort MGM-1 love the guitar but the pickups were a bit to muddy for what I like these day’s so for it’s 20th thought I’d do an update, put in an order Mr. Fab range w had a chat he recommended LIX- 59 with Alinco 3 magnet they are exactly what he said they would be, can’t put it down. Thanks Mr.Fab

  2. Aizat Yasmin

    Superb 5 star pickups. Repaired my old epiphone which I had for 15 years (Got it when I was in high school). Had one of my best gigs with these.

  3. Mark Kirby

    We install these sets at Section 8 Guitars in our MPD model, coil tapped. They are absolutely amazing in any position and the neck pickup is phenomenal!.

    We installed these sets at Section 8 Guitars in our MPD model,coil tapped. They are just amazing, so responsive and the neck pickup is just WOW!

  5. Andy Higgs

    Simple……These are just the best sounding humbucking pickups I have ever played. Even using them in a hi gain situation, they clean up beautifully without going dull when the guitar volume is turned down. Just great.

  6. Dazza

    Great pickup,put a pickup in the bridge of an SG,very articulate in sound with some nice bite when cranked up. Beautiful nuances and tonal qualities from these gems A very classic paf tone, one of of a kind,this is my second from Mr Fab , I’ll be back for a third too

    Got a few sets of pick ups for guitar & bass off Fab! These LIX with A2s are killer in a custom SG I had! I’d originally built it with a set of Duncan Prails, but was ultimately unsatisfied with any of it’s not quie there pick up emulations!So I sold those, & they paid for a set of D’urbano LIX! Bright & articulate, with tons of clarity! With coil splitting and a phase reveral swtich, I can approimiate even STRAT in between sounds! TRY that with other hum bucking types! PUT a set in your Gibbo or Gibbo inspired copy! Closest you’ll GET to THAT sound! Cheers Fab!
