VF Custom Pickups

With 25 years of experience in winding custom pickups, we came along with a complete pickup range that covers the tone character of our guitars.

This range is created by the combination of our personal taste for each of our models, together with the high technical knowledge and our passion for the perfect tone.

Our VF custom pickups range continues to the territory of the famous American tone, vintage style humbuckers and single coils.

All our pickups are made with top USA materials and according to the original specs of the era.
