There's nothing else quite like the satisfaction of owning an instrument that's tailored to your personal tastes. Whether that means building one from scratch or swapping out parts to fine-tune your favorite Fender, Gibson or Epiphone axe, a broad selection of guitar pickups and parts means that you can mix and match your way to your dream instrument.Pickups, naturally, are one of the most important parts of an electric guitar. These are the gadgets that turn string vibrations into a signal that the amp can understand. No two pickups sound exactly alike, but each type has its own distinct tonal category. Single-coil pickups tend toward a brighter, more defined sound that makes them a favorite for classic rock. Double-coil pickups, or "humbuckers," give a more weighty tone with great power that works well for metal and other heavier genres. You'll also want to consider the output level of your preferred pickup type, with moderate outputs giving greater clarity and high-output pickups delivering meaty distortion. Connecting an acoustic guitar to an amp calls for a different type of pickup than an electric one. Acoustic-friendly choices include microphones, soundhole pickups and piezo or saddle pickups. A mic gives you the advantage of picking up non-string effects like tapping, while the other acoustic pickup types give you clear tone directly from the strings. Another option you have with an acoustic guitar is to install a soundhole cover to dampen feedback and improve the tone.Solid-body electric guitars don't have that soundhole, but they're still a tinkerer's best friend. Tack on a signature Floyd Rose Tremolo Bridge to create sweet vibrato effects, customize your bridge and tailpiece—or even install a built-in preamp. If that's still not custom enough for you, how about picking out your own guitar body and neck to build a new Stratocaster or Telecaster from the ground up? It's a definite possibility if that's the avenue you want to take.For all their differences, there is still a lot of common ground between acoustic and electric guitars. For both types, there are pickguards, nuts, saddles and tuning machines. Nuts and saddles have a big impact on how your guitar feels and how easy it is to play, since they determine the height of the strings off the fretboard. With tuners, browse by 3-per-side or in-line sets depending on which head style is on the guitar you're buying for. Pickguards add a whole lot of personality to your guitar, so look for guards that have the look you want.Building, customizing, repairing—whatever your reason to browse guitar pickups and parts, this huge selection of components has you covered for pretty well any modification you'll care to make. It's all part of the process of making your instrument truly your own.
