Thanks for visiting Wiggins Brand All Wood Pickups. Feel free to inquire about our designs.
• About Wiggins Brand:
Wiggins Brand is a husband and wife artist team based in Arizona, USA. We are dedicated to producing the most unique and beautiful all wood pickups, and one-of-a-kind fine art glass guitar knobs of unprecedented craftsmanship. We make each pickup and glass product we sell by hand in our studio.
Our pickup designs are originals created with the aid of a CO2 laser to cut and engrave hand selected woods for our bobbins, and are hand scatter-wound to create the tone you need. We use high quality Alnico magnets, 42 & 43 gauge enameled wire, and all pickups are lacquer dipped, wax potted and wrapped with heavy ribbon tape for coil protection. William has devoted his life to creative arts such as photography and fine art painting, and has had a career of woodworking and fabrication for professional frame shops for nearly 30 years. William's experience of woodworking, creative fabrication and a love for instrument building is the foundation of Wiggins Brand today.
Wiggins Brand custom, one-of-a-kind glass guitar control knobs are made individually by Renee, using traditional glass working (also referred to as flameworked or torchworked) methods. Renee is a lifelong artist with over 23 years experience as a professional glass artist, photographer and digital design expert.
• The Wiggins Brand Business Philosophy:
We strive to give our customers the absolute very best guitar pickup possible, with no B.S.....we don't over hype or make claims that aren't true.....we just use the best quality hard woods and the best materials over all. We will not send out a pickup that is not fully tested and correct, and we'll honor a full refund within 15 days of receipt of your pickup(s) if not completely satisfied. Your business is very important to us and you will be treated right. We welcome any questions or comments you may have, just drop us a line. Thank you, William & Renee Wiggins
• Why Choose Wood?: Wood bobbins impart a flavor and warmth to the tone of a pickup. The tone is different from a fiber bobbin pickup; it is richer and fuller than fiber board bobbins. If you’re a guitarist who prefers tone over hype, wood is for you!
Our "Traditionals" line of pickups are built one by one and by hand as our wood pickups are, however this series is our answer to customers who are not into the look of wood or just don't want to change the look of their vintage style guitar. The pickups are made to the same spec's as our wood pickups so they have the great tone you have come to expect from Wiggins Brand.
• Glass Control Knob Care: Glass knobs are very durable and easy to care for, but they are glass and can break or chip if smacked hard enough or dropped. When installing them on your guitar, take care not to force them onto the pot shaft (split shaft pots only!). If the fit seems too tight, simply close the split shaft with pliers a little at a time to test snugness. If too loose, open up the pot shaft a little. Knobs should be installed by pressing straight down onto the shaft, and not a an angle. Press the knob down as far as it will go easily. There will be an approximate 3mm-5mm gap between the knob and the guitar face, depending on how high the retaining nut is on your guitar. To remove a knob, simply pull straight up, but do not torque back and forth. It is also advisable NOT to use a metal jack, as this can chip the bottom edge of the knob. Cleaning is simple, a little soap and water is all you need, but don't use an abrasive pad or gritty cleaners as this can scratch the glass.
