BIGSMOKE PICKUPS

BIGSMOKE GUITARS has a smorgasbord of pickups available for sale. In every different configuration you can think of. The pickups range from single pole icons, on up to the six pole, 9k 0hm bronze bombers…

All our Bigsmoke Pickups are hand wound to any number you desire, or you can choose from the extensive range available according to the number of winds and ohms they read in at.

Bigsmoke pickups are made completely in the black wood of whenge or in the white/gold wood of American maple. Both exceptional tone carrying hardwoods.
