· SIXTUS · flat guitar pickups are based on my "Original Flatpup pickups" which have successfully been used by guitar builders all over the world since 2011. Check them out at www.flatpup.com

Meanwhile, many copies exist on the market which follow the path of the original flat pickups,

The marvellous feedback of our clients convinced us to create · SIXTUS · ,  a pickup brand specially designed for electric guitars and resonator guitars. 


· SIXTUS · pickups combine everything we learnt from our luthier-customers feed back:

narrow silhouette, top-mount, easy-on, humbucking, wax potted and their vintage look. An ideal add-on pickup!


Their sound is described as open, transparent and harmonic. And silent with respect to the hum cancelling. I serve customers from all over the world. Your feedback is important for us to ensure we follow the right track. Thank you for that.

The company is located in Vienna, Austria. From 2019 on, I run this business on a small scale besides having a full time job, Please understand my limited production possibilities and the limited availability of pickups.
