The pickup is the true heart of an electric guitar. Without it, it would be – well – not an electric guitar at all. Its invention and first application in the 1930s opened the door for a new category of instruments, but its true Renaissance came in the 1960s: the decade of pickup innovation diaspora.
2020 was a strange year... but it was also the perfect time to stay at home playing guitar and listening to some good music. The Eastwood Guitars team picks their favourite albums and guitars of 2020.
