Victory Guitar & Pickup Co. was founded on a love of everything about guitars and music. Playing and building creative guitars for the past 30 years came first, making pickups came after seeing a need for affordable pickups that have a vintage look and sound.

  1. How does the acoustic pickup attach? Don’t want scratches on my Martin. Please post a Youtube demo of the acoustic pickup — please include an installation demo with a sound demo. Thanks


  2. Wade,

    In terms of having a pickguard cut to fit the gold foil pickups, are they the same size as a p-90 or different. If different, could you provide the dimensions. Thanks.


    Hi Danny,

    Check out my offerings on reverb.com. https://reverb.com/item/259424-lowrider-vintage-gold-foil-style-pickup
    I posted blueprints for each in the photo section. They are very close to a mini humbucker that you would find in a firebird guitar.
    Thanks for the question,

    so I have a vintage late 50s early 60s Key accoustic…
    the sound hope is a bit smaller than modern guitars….. 3.5 inches…
    with plastic binding…which foil pickup would has serve this guitar with out messing it up…?


    1. Hi Lawrence,
      Both Acoustic models, the Toaster and Traditions models fit into a 3″-4″ hole. Both use padded tabs to attach to the guitar using friction. No glueing or screwing is needed.




  4. Hi Wade I just installed a low rider I bought from someone it’s amazing but is there a way of stopping the microphone clunk noise from it on the pickguard.i know how to wax pot but not sure about this one You time and help is appreciated. Regards Lee


    1. Hi Lee,

      The sound you can get from an unpotted pickup can be amazing! It can also have handling noise, especially in the bridge position. I usually recommend pickups in the bridge position to be potted.
      If you have experience potting, you can pot the entire pickup. I offer vacuum potting for a small nominal fee. Hope this helps.
