Since 1998, my guitars are fitted with custom wound handmade passive pickups for which I designed the exterior looks (Hufschmid Pickups). These humbuckers are handcrafted by Kent Armstrong himself and are individually custom designed to fit the player's needs. These exclusive resin cast pickups are not to be confused with his production models.

The unique appearance of the pickups comes from part of the process which creates them - the units are solid cast, eliminating the need for any form of cover. The humbuckers are built in a rubber mold (I had to design several 'casting masters' in order to create those molds) into which the magnets and coils are inserted, a special grade of resin is then pored over the entire thing, the result is a perfectly sealed and shielded pickup.
