At Belvedere Instrument Co., we are passionate about creating high quality guitars and pickups that inspire, energize, and excite. We're a family run company and we take pride in our work. 

Brett James Hawes

Brett cut his teeth as a manufacturing specialist for Next Gen Guitars where he helped design and build hand-wound guitar pickups, guitar harnesses, and instrument cables for customers all over the world. He then started independently winding custom pickups for builders and hobbyists. Focusing on the science and math of pickups, he aims to satisfy the specific sound needs of every customer with meticulous detail and precision.

Seeking to make his own mark in the industry, Brett is showcasing ‘Belvedere Instrument Co.’  with a line of in-house manufactured pickups and guitars .
