Because great guitars deserve this.



For all you folks who want it right down to the last detail -- have we got something for you.

We've all seen the vintage restoration projects and modified guitars that are missing their original pickups.  Sure, you can buy new toasters to fill the holes -- and fine pickups they are -- but that one-size-fits-all backing plate just doesn't look right to the discerning eye and the detail-oriented.

What to do?  Check us out, of course.  Hot off the presses, we're happy to offer vintage-style backing plates to bring your pickups back to spec.  These precision aluminum parts are drop in replacements for the factory plate, and virtually indistinguishable from a vintage piece.

We offer two styles of plates: the solid plate used on the very first flat-back toasters, and the later version used on the classic toasters from the late 50s through early 70s.  Even better, both styles are available for surface-mount pickups (as shown in the pictures) or with threaded mounting holes for use on a 400-series guitar or a bass.

For looks, quality, and accuracy: there is simply no other choice for your Rickenbacker.
