Check 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.

All pickup orders for standard models have a lead time of approximately 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the type of order. Custom orders will take longer. Lead times quoted are approximate and orders may take longer depending on my current work load. Please understand that all pickups (other than eBay items) are built to order and that although we work hard to get things out the door in the time quoted, sometimes things get hung up and take longer than expected. This is the reality for any small custom job shop.



Expect a longer lead time to process custom orders. Unfortunately, once an order is processed, NO CHANGES MAY BE MADE. (Please ask any questions before finalizing your order!) Lead times may exceed 6-12 months, but that is extremely rare. For custom orders, 4-6 months is not uncommon, but we do our best to get custom orders out in 3-4 months.



Reed James Engineering does not accept returns or cancellations on any custom or made to order pickups. Store credit may only be issued on stock items. Returned items must be in perfect condition, and returned within 30 days. By placing your custom order you agree that all sales are final and that there are no charge backs or cancellations.



Delivery times vary. Currently all orders are shipped USPS.  It is possible for packages to get held up at times shipping to certain locations. All packages are insured in case they are lost are damaged. If you wish to use a different shipping company, please make that request at the time you place the order.
