i gotten a Mitchell Guitar for my 40th birthday, and need a pickup to use it with an amp, So enter a 3d printer and some 8m 32 screws and a 1/4 female plug from Radio Shack.

The design is just standardised, but will be changing to being a complete kit for building your own pickup.


updated to Customizer, but working on fixing size limits. go to:

Well not to hard to follow instructions, except i have hard time making them. This does fit 99mm sound ports and it quick to assemble, after printing the parts.

You will need to print two side pieces, then print both the top and back.
Losen the slack on your stings, to get this by.
Place the one coil pickup in the top, then place the bottom on and screw it down. place on side piece on top of another one as to shim the piece to the top with out blocking screw holes and screw one piece on.
Now work the piece through the strings in to the guitar.

Update, The Side Pieces are now one piece to print
as of Christmas, i wont be removing anymore of the stl files. Since there maybe a style change that other won't agree with.

The Scad IS setup up for Customerizer SO, I can't figure out how to add it to work!

Any way to mod this for a Humbucker pickup?? Thanx!:) Great Design

If you are so inclined to do so, the openscad file is downloadable. I am not actively working on this project right now. When I do go back, I may redesign the whole project.

Awesome! Can you provide some details about how you did the wiring? I believe you have to wind these, is that correct? Thanks!

More to the point, this takes any passive single coil windings. using measurements,

I am working on making a pickup as well, and making one for my bass as well, but that has a pickup already in it.
