Order a custom wood pickup ramp for your bass guitar by following these instructions.
- Choose any wood in the collection below or enter a different wood choice.
- Enter your ramp dimensions, what I'll need to know:
- The distance between the pickups.
- The length of each pickup.
- The height of each pickup.
- The height under the outer strings.
- The height under the center string(s).
- The fingerboard radius at the body end of the neck (if you know it).
- Does the ramp need to fit over a partial pickguard?
These measurements can be made with a ruler that reads 1mm, 1/32" or smaller increment and entered in the form below. Alternatively you can make a paper/cardstock template that fits between the pickups on your bass. You can either cut the card to size with scissors or fold up the extra length and width and tape it back on itself. If the pickups have mounting tabs (Jazz and P pickups) mark the locations of those and if it's easy for you, carefully cut the tab areas out. Looking straight down from above the bass mark on the template where each string passes over it. Stand a small card on the top of the bass between the pickups up against each string and carefully mark the bottom of the string on the card and label it (E, A, D, G, etc). You can keep using the same card and rotating it to a new edge for each string. Also mark the height of each pickup on the card and indicate "neck" or "bridge". You can mail these cards to me in an envelope or scan them into a PDF document and email it to me. If you scan them please include a line of inch or cm markings to one side so I can verify the 1:1 scale of the PDF.
- If your bass is a common model, indicate that and any other information that could be useful to me.
- Once I receive your form I'll contact you with an estimate and payment information.
