ES-335 Electronics

Background: Often we have electric guitars come in where players desire significant sound improvements. Every electric that has come in for electronics upgrades has left with the player blown away at the transformation in the guitar’s sound and controls.

Upgrades: Almost always I replace every piece of electronics, from the jack to the pickups. The highest grade, hand-picked for tolerance pots are used, PIO capacitors which I’ve sourced from overseas new-old stock (NOS). Pickups are hand-wound and made to order. Sometimes we upgrade bridges and tailpieces as well, depending on the specific instrument. Extensive shielding is also put in place to quiet the instrument, especially in stage environments.

We frequently perform this work on Gibson, Fender, Epiphone, Ibanez, and Eastman guitars.
