Guitar Salvage - Wilkinson Pickups - Vintage Guitar

These days it is difficult to find a reasonably priced, custom built guitar, everything on offer appears to be a cheap Chinese import. For the price of a factory built 'same as the next one' guitar we can offer something a little different and unique.
The products we make or resell are fit for purpose and are good enough to do the job they were designed to do. They might be old or preowned or made from a combination of new and recycled parts but (if treated with respect) they should offer their new owner good service.

  • Made from maple and fettled in the UK
  • Smooth guitar fingerboard edge 
  • Satin finish and lightly oiled
  • Installed with double style truss rod

    This is an excellent reloved example of this great guitar - make a silly offer...

    This guitar plays really well. The neck is straight and has plenty of life left in it. The machine heads are the original Wilkinson hardware and has an early Wilkinson type bridge. The bridge pickup is a genuine new (2018) Wilkinson HOT Single Coil Pickup which has an early Fender Squire Script cover, the middle and neck pickup are earlier 60s style ‘twangy’ pickups, which sound as good as the original Wilkinson ones. New light strings fitted.

    The body is scratched and has a few minor dents. We have rebuilt and fettled this unloved beast and have given it a new lease of life.

    We are always looking for used spare parts and damaged electric guitars. Contact us and let us know what you have for sale.

    The guitars we sell are lovingly assembled from the best bits we have in stock so each guitar is a custom built instrument. We have sold Fenders that have been rebuilt using pickups from Manson guitars and have assembled some awesome beasts using brand new, unmarked bodies (damaged guitars that have broken necks) marrying them with vintage necks and hardware.

    We carry a small amount of stock which changes constantly – contact us if you are looking for a part.
