Chck out the New RJ NEO bass pickups


Reed James Engineering takes great pride in using high quality materials, innovative manufacturing techniques and consistent attention to detail. We strive to make our custom pickups with the best tone in the business while presenting a striking visual appearance.


Every custom pickup in the Reed James Collection is custom wound. These pickups are not wound until you place the order so they will meet your needs and taste in tone. I will wind them for the tone you want.


With the introduction of our Robowound™ products and technology, we offer some of our more popular pickups as standard items. If you are looking for that vintage PAF tone, the only way to achieve it is with technology that duplicates the winding pattern, an impossible task by hand!


While we continually expand the range of pickups we offer, I will build a custom pickup for any instrument, even if it is not on our list, as long as we can specify the requirements.


If you’re looking for the highest quality possible, Reed James Custom Pickups are second to none. We will work with you to produce the tone you have been looking for while improving the visual appeal of your guitar. 

we have spent untold hours of research and development time achieving the great tone and amazing harmonic and sonic qualities of our pickups and hope you enjoy them in your guitar!




James Reed


For the Luthiers out there, production order discounts are available if you want to feature our pickups in your products.

  Single Coil

The Single Coil

Stratocaster replacement pickup

If you're looking for true vintage Stratocaster tone of the 50s and 60s hear it is.  Think SRV, Jimmy Hendrix, and many guitar legends that have use the signature tone of a vintage Stratocaster to make it to the top. Full fat bell like tones that have bean lost in the new production instruments.  Our single coil pickups are made with USA made vulcanized fiber and sand cast alnico 5 magnet pole peaces.

Reed James engineering fabricates the flat work in the custom machine shop.  We hand assemble and Scatter wind each bobbin, and attach true vintage spec lacquered cloth pull back wire leads and pot them in virgin bees wax and paraffin.

These pickups are made using true vintage technology
