MJS Custom Handwound Pickups

Looking for a quality handwound pickup that performs to your needs? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Mix & match the components for a totally custom sound.

All our Pickups are 100% Canadian Made. Bobbins, magnets & wire sourced from local suppliers in Ontario. We do all vulcanized fiberboard bobbin construction and magnet calibration at our shop. Our winding machines are built by us & are operated by one person and scatter-wound for that great tone you’re looking for!

We produce all makes & models of traditional pickups that retrofit into existing routing patterns (i.e. Humbuckers, P-90’s, Tele’s, Strats & J-or P- Basses) – but it doesn’t stop there!  Since we make our own bobbins and cut and calibrate our magnets, we also produce custom sized pickups to fit almost any scenario including “thins”.  We have incorporated custom pickups into most steel stringed instruments, including steel stringed Ukeleles, Mandolins, Resonators, Lap Steels and Upright Basses. Check out the Totally Custom section for ideas.
