    Hello Strat-Talk members! River Pickups offers quality hand-wound strat-style pickups at an affordable price.

    I have lived and breathed guitar since I was eleven years old. But I’ve always been seeking, chasing, desiring something more from my tone. This is why I started River Pickups.

    The goal of River Pickups is simple - to make hand-wound pickups that give me the tone I have been seeking for years...and to offer these pickups to other musicians at an affordable price.


    River Pickups are wound one-at-a-time in my small workshop in Middle Tennessee. I wind every one myself and I test each one to make sure it meets my sonic standards.

    Visit our website to see what we have to offer!

    Welcome to Strat-Talk.

    Can you make the Colorado set with less 'vintage stagger' on the poles? i.e. stagger the poles to match a 9.5" radius and/or use a longer pole for the B position. I'm curious if you've experimented along this path.

    FWIW, I'm NOT a fan of the relatively high G string output when using vintage stagger pups on a 9.5" (or flatter) radius board.
