Vintage Electric guitars are designed to the exacting standards of top UK guitar designer Trev Wilkinson.
Trev’s restless quest for innovation takes electric guitar tradition and gives it a thoroughly modern makeover.
Just a hobby for me but I still like to put some info on the pickups I make just for future references.
I have stuck them on the bottom of baseplates before wax potting and had no problems with it coming off. The quickest way is to write on the forbon with an archival pen (I like Pygma), or a common pencil (the potting will fix the pencil lines). The other thing to consider is how fade-proof the label ink is.With plastic bobbins, one must find an archival pen that will fuse with the surface. The quick test is to leave a label on a windowsill exposed to direct sunlight for months, and see if it fades.Then I got some of that sticker paper from staples and printed out a sheet.Then when I need a label I cut one off the sheet and write in the details( magnet type, Resistance, whatever, etc...). The issue is to find a way that is permanent, despite solvents and hot wax.Fill out the form below with some info about your Need and We will get back to you as soon as I can.
Also, do you sign them before or after wax potting?
The Airline Guitars were sold through Montgomery Ward.

It is hard to imagine today, but in the early 1960’s having an electric guitar in your home was rare.
In fact, it was likely that your parents were steering you in the direction of accordion lessons. The Beatles – and of course others – stopped all that.
Below: If your first electric guitar was in the 1960’s, there is a good chance it was a Teisco. The Teisco Del Ray was perhaps the most popular student guitar from the 1960’s. It was recently re-issued through the Eastwood Custom Shop. Hagstrom made some wonderful guitars with exceptionally fast necks.
