Now you can easily replace your inadequate and limiting "stock" pickup switches on your electric guitar or bass with our high performance Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products.

Our upgrade products will give you the ultimate "holy crap" experience.

Use our Product Selector Page to choose the correct upgrade product for all of your instruments.

Why You Must Upgrade Now

Our high performance electric guitar and bass Upgrade products Give You Amazing Tones Without Changing Your Pickups. This is like an artist finding dozens of additional colors of paint to work with. You can have every analog pickup tone ever created in one upgraded guitar:

Blues, Jazz, Metal, Surf, Country, Glass-Shattering Tin-Canny, and dozens of subtle pickup tones in between.

"All great guitarists have created their identity by having their own incredible Signature Sounds
and making the path so obscure that very few people can replicate those unique sounds."

But this is no longer true. Your seriously upgraded instrument will give you the Signature Sound all the guitar gods of literally every headliner group since the 1940s. Think of groups like Rush, AC-DC, Boston, The Ventures, Clapton, Gilmore, George Harrison, Shadows, Dire Straits, classic Beach Boys, Paul McCartney, SRV, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, The Eagles and pretty much everyone else. For the first time ever, your upgraded instrument can have all those "unique" sounds they are known for.

Do you see the value of having dozens of unique guitar profiles all rolled into one upgraded instrument?

After you install these amazing Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products into your guitars or bass, you can pretty much duplicate the sound of virtually every electric guitar ever made. Your guitar will sound like a Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, Les Paul, PRS, Ibanez, as well as every electric guitar ever made with either single-coil or humbucker pickups! Our simple High-Performance upgrade products will give you at least a dozen new pickup tones that you have NEVER heard before. We Guarantee It.1

Do you know why you would want a complete toolbox of unique pickup tones? Because you want To Sound Different. When you constantly use the same pickup tone, all of your results start sounding the same. Look at the over 400 songs that the Beatles recorded. Each one was DIFFERENT because it had a different mood, a different beat, and most of all a different Sound. And all those Different Sounds caused the public to take notice of them and propel them to legendary fame. Sounding different is a big benefit to your success.

Why settle for the career-killing wimpy three or five pickup tones that all the manufacturers have shoved down your throat? Do you really think your career is going to blossom with the exact same puny few pickup tones that millions of wannabes are using?

A Career-Boosting Secret For You

Our growing family of high performance patented Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products will give your electric guitar and bass an incredible increase in the number of pickup tones.   A little-known fact is that the human ear can only distinguish 62 unique pickup tones. This includes the complete spectrum of all possible pickup tones going from blues (at one end of the pickup tone spectrum) to glass-shattering tin-canny tones (at the other end of the pickup tone spectrum).

Did you know that all instruments that contain our upgrade products immediately make other guitars sound anorexic? This is because our upgrade products give you a lot more pickup tones and also give you pickup tones so "fat", they're... OBESE.

Our switch upgrade products are now the New Pickup Switch Standard because they give you access to ALL the electrical pickup coil combinations for your instruments. For the first time in history, you can now upgrade all your instruments to get all of the "hidden" pickup tones in your instrument.   None of the manufacturers can give you this kind of incredible pickup tone power.

All of the product that we create are designed to make it easy for you to upgrade your instruments to get New Magical Pickup Voices without using batteries or sensitive electronic boards (both of which will let you down when you're performing or recording).

Our insanely great upgrade products will let you Get Amazing Tones from your instrument Without Changing Your Pickups!

We design and manufacture all of our products to give you a vast range of pure analog pickup tones on your electric guitar or bass. This means that our upgrades will give you the maximum number of pickup tones possible from your instrument — elevating it to an entirely new dimension. After you upgrade your instruments with our products, you will think that they are "powered" by a tone nuclear reactor.

Your jaw will drop the very first time you hear all of the unique "hidden" pickup tones your seriously upgraded instrument will be producing — tones that nobody has ever heard before. These are tones that you can use to your advantage by sounding completely unique.

"In the studio, selecting the right guitar for the part is more than half the battle. Having a palette of sounds to choose from helps you play to your particular strengths, and the marriage of creative ideas to appropriate instruments is hard to beat." — Rich Tozzoli - Music Producer/Composer/Mixer

Do You Know These Interesting Facts?

  • Almost every part of today's electric guitar and bass has been significantly improved to give you greater value than ever before.

  • The single exception to all this innovation are the "antique" 3-way or 5-way pickup switches. For over 70 years, these switches have had ZERO improvement — but are still being used by manufacturers, even though we're now in the 21st century. Their woefully inadequate linear design prevents you from getting ALL of those hidden pickup tones that your instrument contains. These primitive pickup switches will only give you 3 pickup tones or 5 pickup tones — instead of the 6, 35 or 68 and now 351 pure analog pickup tones you can really get when you upgrade your instruments with our high performance Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products.

  • We are the only company with upgrades that let you put all four pickup coils into series and get numerous QuadraBuckerTM pickup tones from any guitar with four pickup coils (e.g., HSS, HH, SSSS). And now, our new upgrades will let you put all five pickup coils in your HSH instrument into series to produce a wealth of PentaBuckerTM pickup tones for an incredible 351 pickup tones.

  • A few smarter manufacturers are slowly starting to listen to customers who want more pickup tones than the stock instrument can offer. Their new instruments have several mini toggle switches to give customers access to more pickup tones. But the use and placement of these added switches is random at best. Worst of all, they are still using that old style pickup switch obstacle by designing their "enhancements" around it. Further, these instruments are increasingly becoming a "rats nest" of wiring that is a potential support nightmare. Our upgrade products eliminate all of these problems and give you ease and consistency in installation and use.

  • Standards benefit every industry because they offer consistency, ease of use and simplicity to all participants. A superior "standard" pickup switch product means that regardless of the manufacturer using them, the switch operation remains consistent. You don't have to learn how to use each manufacturer's "enhanced" instrument because the standard is the same for everyone. Our High Performance Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products are the the musical instrument industry's new standard for the 21st century.

  • Our Mission is to introduce a new Pickup Switch Standard that gives you the maximum number of pure analog pickup tones possible on your electric guitar or bass. A new pickup switch standard that works the same on all instruments makes sense. Don't you agree?

Industry statistics say that you have 5.7 instruments. Now you can get more enjoyment from your instruments with the single most important upgrade in the last 100 years. These upgrades will enhance your creativity, increase your playing enjoyment and can put your career in orbit. It makes good sense for you to take a much closer look at these products. Don't you agree?

A Guitar Tech's Dream Come True

Guitar and bass technicians who do extensive upgrades to instruments love our products. They are impressed with the huge number of pickup tones our products provide. They appreciate knowing that what used to be a days-long wiring job to get this kind of result is now a simple one-minute task. All the fragile complex wiring and logic is "baked" into a multi-layer printed circuit boards that has a solderless terminal strip. It now takes less than a minute to connect your pickup and input wires to upgrade your instrument.

In fact, our products are vastly superior to the "Jimmy Page" wiring modification. Not only are they simpler (no need to pull the neck tone control out, push the neck volume control in, pull the bridge volume control out, push the bridge tone control in, flip the 3-way toggle switch to the middle position time-wasting insanity just to get a pickup tone), but you also get over 3.2 times MORE (a total of 68) pickup tones from our upgrade. And you can now put all four pickup coils in series to get 88 incredibly "Fat" pickup tones; something that nobody else offers! Imagine being able to offer your customers numerous QuadraBuckerTM pickup tones from their upgraded LP guitars! Our products will save you a ton of TIME and you can give your customers MORE incredible pickup tone power than anything on the planet.

Our Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products will give you additional unique pickup tones that you have NEVER heard before — We Guarantee It1. And because these are unique sounds, you can use them as your Signature Sound that nobody else has. Without this High Performance upgrade you are at the mercy of the manufacturer and you are stuck with the tones that they decided to give you. Finally, you can use our products to break out of that pickup tone prison and get the additional pickup tones that the manufacturers refuse to give you.

You should know that all of our classic products are completely passive and green, so there are no batteries or sensitive digital electronics to fail while you are performing or recording. This also means you can Keep your Analog Pickup Tones PURE.

Even the "F" company obliquely endorsed parallel/series pickup configurations with their S1 switch. But their S1 switch only gives you up to 8 pickup tones, compared to our high performance Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products that will give you as many as 88 pickup tones. Our products will give you performance that is light years ahead of any wimpy and obsolete "custom shop" instrument. It also looks like they leveraged our products with their recent American Deluxe Strat Plus release. Having several personality cards is a poor implementation of our elegant and vastly superior products.   So why would you want to upgrade your instruments with our products?

Put Simply: Our EZ-Install upgrade products give your clients a HUGE edge in the already overcrowded and fiercely competitive player market.

Don't Be "Outsourced"

Are you one of those really smart players who sees the value of standing out from everyone else and sounding Truly UNIQUE?

Here's your new reality. In the last decade, the guitar and bass player market has become very crowded with more players (and wannabes) than ever before. Several new music genres have emerged (rap, electronica, hip-hop, etc.) increasing the intensity of competition for dollars that consumers spend for music CDs, concert tickets, t-shirts, hats, etc. You already know it. These are hard times, with everyone struggling with shrinking gigs, lower pay rates and fewer recording contracts.

Can you tell me how you can stand out and be different if you have the exact same puny 3 or 5 pickup tones as millions of other people?

To survive and thrive in this challenging environment, you absolutely must have something that makes you "different" in an increasingly crowded guitar player market. And now more than ever, that "something" needs to be an incredible secret weapon that will help you rise above the crowd to sound BETTER, sound UNIQUE, sound DIFFERENT.

Our Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products will give you this game-changing and attention-getting difference in spades.

For The Stand Up Performer

If you are on stage for one to several nights a week, you are not going to be using all 35 or 68 pickup tones while Performing. Here's why:

It's just not practical to "fiddle" with all the switch patterns while you are performing. What you will do is "audition" (i.e., listen to) all the pickup tones available to you and jot down what each tone sounds like you you. We even have a worksheet that is on our website to help you. After creating this "Map" of all the pickup tones, you will select 2 or 3 pickup tones that you like the best. One of the pickup tones will be used to "blend in with the group" and the other one or two pickup tones will be your Signature Sound(s) used to let you "Stand out" and sound really unique. Having just two or three switch patterns to remember makes it easy for you to manage this incredible advantage. Now you can project your amazing talent out into the audience with a unique Signature Sound that makes you truly different.

With more pickup tones to select from, you can easily find a unique "Signature Sound" that rises above all the others. Why would you want this? Because when you install our simple high performance upgrade products, you will instantly have a huge advantage over your competitors. When you have 35 (or 68) unique pickup tones, it's easier for you to "break through" to be noticed, to get more bookings, etc.

How can you stand out with the exact same tired and worn-out 3 or 5 pickup tones that millions of other wannabes have?
