Pickup Wiring Workshop
Learn to wire pickups into your guitar with the NCK Custom Shop!
How it works:
Bring your guitar, and a new pickup that you’d like to wire in. If you don’t have a pickup, you can buy a set from us at a great discount. Our experienced techs will guide and teach you how to install, wire and calibrate your pickups to a professional level. After students have wired in their pickups, they can test, demo and compare their work with each other. It will be a great day of pickup wiring fun and meeting new friends who share the same passion for guitar pickups and tech talk as you do!
