Darkmoon Pickups was established in 2010 by the current master winder and owner Mark V. For the first six years the company released products solely for independent guitar builders and luthiers. Following an expansion in 2016, Darkmoon began selling to the public and released their signature humbuckers. Divided into Vintage and Black Arts series, the signature line covers a very wide range of music styles from blues and jazz to heavy metal. Aside from guitar pickups, Darkmoon also offers guitar wiring harnesses, instrument cables, and custom pickguards. The company has introduced a large variety of custom cosmetic options such as real mother of pearl or celluloid inlays, gold foils and engraved humbucker covers. Darkmoon remains a custom pickup company and encourages its customers to make their guitars sound the way they want. The custom shop is able to produce virtually any type of pickup for guitar, or bass and even a one of a kind model made to the customer's specifications. As Darkmoon continues to gain popularity in the guitar world, the team remains loyal to domestic manufacturing by sourcing American made parts and working with small businesses.
