   although Todd Rockfield designed pickups and wiring has been in many guitars for some
    years now. After years of tinkering and research, it was decided to launch the Rockfield

     finest USA parts (found in all of the most recognized, highest quality brands) Rockfield

  using Rockfield pickups as original equipment in their highest quality, upscale models. From
  classic vintage tone to ripping metal leads, there's a high quality Rockfield hum bucker that
                  will define and elevate your own personal tone to new levels!
