    I started Reilander Pickups because I wanted to provide a good quality product that was affordable to most. When we first launched, all our sets were under $100. As we expanded on options, styles and models, our overhead increased which was reflected in an increase in retail pricing.

    Wanting to get back to our roots of affordable quality, we have developed a selection of sets that will be under $100. These pickups will be known as Blue Collar Pickups, and will be available for direct sale only from bluecollarpickups.com

    Nice looking site!

    Friendly suggestions from an outsider who's designed more than a few websites:

    1. Neither your Contact page nor your About Us page has any contact info (like phone# or address).

    2. You have an "Our Mission" statement on your site. That went out of style in the late 90s, and is considered a beginning website builder's blunder.

    3. WAY more pictures are needed. Potential customers want to know what the backsides, the wiring and termination look like. Finish out the picture collection with a "what's in the box" picture, showing screws, springs, instructions, packaging.......

    4. Brag about your warranty. I should not have to dig to find out the length of the warranty. Big bold headline of "One Year, No-Fault Warranty" would be much more effective, and not seem like you are hiding it under a ton of text. Act like you really care "We know problems can be frustrating; call us and one of our friendly techs will work with you to diagnose the problem...."

    5. Post easy, flat rate shipping. As a customer, I'm not going to bother to fill my cart just to discover that the shipping to the USA is crazy. Post some flat rate shipping prices "$9 flat rate shipping through out Canada, $15 to USA, $20 worldwide" or whatever.

    Good luck, and keep making great pickups!

    You should buy some another over-priced brand that claims they use fairy dust to get 'that' vintage tone. :)

    Bobbins_1.jpg Even though Blue Collar Pickups are machine wound, there is still a lot of hand work involved in producing our products from start to finish. Today is the start of a series showing how we do it. Please comment and give us your feedback!

    Would love to hear how they sound! Have you got any audio clips?

    Unfortunately, the Blue Collar line is not available in anything other than 6 strings. But we have 7 and 8 string options, both production and custom at Reilander Custom Guitar that definitely will do Djent!
