Electronic Modification

Here at 5th frets we are passionate about electronic modification and the customisation of instrument circuitry. There are many ways to change the sound and feel of your instrument, from changing the pickups, to adding or changing capacitors. We offer a variety of custom wiring modifications depending on the style and personal preference of each player:

  • pickup change
  • humbuckers in parallel/series
  • component upgrade (switch, potentiometer, etc.)
  • capacitor addition or upgrade
  • tone bleed or tone bypass capacitation
  • push potentiometers
  • stereo/mono wiring
  • switch variations/upgrade

Please contact us for any further details or advice on customising your guitars. We house a wide range of pickups and capacitors and are happy to order in anything the customer requires.
