List of Guitar Pickup Manufacturers

LOPM | Mod Cheap Guitars |

It’s hard to find an accurate list of every known electric guitar pickup manufacturer…because no one has been “loco” enough to attempt such a list. Until now.

Let’s be honest. Many pickup companies have terrible websites. These people love coils of wire, not lines of code! Often these entities vanish, leaving confused guitar mod enthusiasts to begin the search for great tone from scratch yet again.

Not this time.

I am aggregating all known pickup manufacturer websites into a well-curated list. If you find a dead link or know of a missing company let me know via the contact form and you will receive something special*.

In order to take full advantage, please print or export this table to assist you in this journey for incredible tone.
