Rewinds & Repairs
We've repaired and rewound the rarest and most sought after pickups in the world. We know how much your vintage pickup means to you. You can trust Fralin Pickups to get the job done right.
To make sure we can work on your pickup, please Contact Us before sending your pickup in. If you do not, you will be charged shipping to return the pickup to you.
Our rewind process is not just a rewind – it’s a complete Vintage Restoration. It’s a diagnosis, repair, and careful restoration back to complete and healthy working condition. Our process starts from the ground up – we find what’s wrong with your pickup, and make attempts to repair it first. If we can’t fix the pickup, we completely disassemble it, clean and straighten any parts, and re-assemble it with new lacquer and glue.
When you get a fully restored pickup, your pickup has been completely taken apart and rebuilt with great precision and care. We have special techniques to preserve the way your pickup looks, as well as winding by hand – just like Fender and Gibson did it back in the day.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Rewinds start at $100 per coil, and may go up depending on the model and how much work is required. Included in this service is the whole restore process and Wax Potting.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Most Rewinds take about 6-8 weeks, in the shop. We are a little backed-up due to Covid-19. If you want it back sooner, please include $50 with your payment as a Rush Fee. The Rush Service guarantees that your pickup will ship within two weeks.
Our Rush Fee is $50.00. This guarantees two weeks or less in the shop. The outside of the box must be marked 'RUSH' clearly to proceed quickly.
HOW DO I PAY?
You can pay by Check, Credit Card, or PayPal. Please use our Payment Portal here: Payment Portal.
If you’re unsure of the cost, and need a diagnosis, follow the instructions below to mail it to us, and include a note explaining that you need a diagnosis. We’ll call you with a price!
