SUMMER NAMM 2019: In what’s likely to be one of the innovations of the show, French luthier Wild Customs has unveiled the Gyrock, a revolving pickup system that the company is calling “revolutionary”.
Up to six pickups can be loaded in a single guitar, thanks to the Gyrock’s pickup modules, and physically switched using two levers on the guitar’s body.
Players can easily replace pickups “within seconds” using the company’s rear-mountable modules, and a range of Seymour Duncan pickups is included.
The patent-pending system is currently available exclusively on Wild Custom Guitars, although we’re intrigued to see if the builder will offer it up to other manufacturers further down the line.
