Ever since George Beauchamp created the first guitar pickup in the 1920's, guitar players obsessed with finding the perfect tone have been replacing the pickups on their electric guitars. Most of the classic guitars have become so because of their unique sound – a Stratocaster sounds different from a Telecaster, which in turn sounds different from a Jazzmaster, because they are all fitted with variants of the single coil pickup. Pickup manufactures such as Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio have produced some really clever designs that enable you to add a humbucker to your Strat, a P90 to a Les Paul etc. At Musician's Friend we have over 1,000 pickups for you to choose from, including Humbucker Pickups, Soapbar Pickups, as well as more esoteric items such as 7 String Guitar Pickups. As with everything we sell, all our Electric Guitar Pickups are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
