Let’s say I had a really good reason to find curly maple NF pickup rings. Where would I find some?
I’d try Crazyparts in Germany. They say they supply PRS, but in any case, the work looks very high quality.
Send a PM to Helmi. He had three NFs mounted in custom Ebony rings to fit in an HB slot. I have two of those from him mounted in a Santana. Don't know who did them for him. All I can say is they look bada$$! Plus, they sound fookin' killer!
Thanks, bodia. I’ll see where that takes me. Hopefully you will too, hahahah!
Thanks, Schef. As it turns out, they do not carry these. They only order in "large quantities". While I'm not sure what that means, I'm certain I don't need that many. I wonder where these can be found?
I went back and looked at the convo he and I had last August. He never mentioned where he go them from.
ViperDoc. .... Not sure about curly maple, but try https://www.pickuprings.com/inc/sdetail/3264
Might want to try Crazy Parts out of Germany as well
Much appreciated. They do not make them.
Never heard of these guys, but the work looks amazing! Thank you!
No problems. They don't list curly maple, but they do have flame. Wouldn't hurt contacting them .. Who knows maybe they can make them in curly
I'm sure they can, because they already do! I'm sure I'm singing to the choir here, but just to clarify:
"CURL" broadly describes wood grain that changes direction. When cut, it takes an appearance based on that curl's consistency and character.
"FLAME" is curl that is mostly happening in the same plane, and is usually tighter and even, appearing like parallel lines, tiger stripes, etc.
"QUILT" describes curl that DOES NOT occur in the same plane, but multiple planes, taking on the appearance of moving water, "popcorn", tubes, like the tops below.
There are all kinds of curl, but even though pickup rings are very small, the look of curly maple pickup rings to me is really cool. Check these out:
It's a subtle thing, but hey, the beauty is in the details. Thanks again for the nice referral.
Those rings look great. The guitars aren't bad, either!
I don’t know if John makes them, but he makes quality stuff.
Edit: I see it’s already posted.
I want to say this Guilford guitar guy IS THE PICKUP RINGS.com guy. You guys are awesome!
2 stunning specimens adorned with nifty maple beauties.
Beautiful guitar. I'm neither a luthier or an arborist, so thanks for the schooling.
I would contact Dave at fretsonthenet dot com. He made me some anodized aluminum NF pickup rings for my studio model, and he can work with wood as well. Great guy to work with.
