We share a passion
An aesthetic research
Sound is the subject of constant research for any guitarist. Everyone is looking for their own, the ultimate sound… We are also looking for such and such a style, such a song. We try to change, to move forward, to go to the end of the exploration of the instrument. Sometimes we find it for a while, then the desire to venture into new sonic territories takes us back.
The pickup is the first electrical element in the chain of components that make the sound. The quality of its capture, its character, will largely depend on the final sound. The pickup, instrument within the instrument, is the basis of this pleasure with each note played.
Cecca Guitars was born from this passion for sound. The work on the pickup, a central element in the search for new sound territories, is obvious to us. It is an object of innovation, in terms of materials and design. The pickup, complex and subtle, allows us to satisfy our obsession with sound research, our perfectionism.
Our everyday happiness is this aesthetic research, that of the craftsman coupled with that of the artist. We want pickups that are like treasures, in their appearance and their capacity to produce constantly renewed pleasure.
The workshop thus lives with one goal: to help guitarists find the sound that will accompany them for as long as possible. Because the musician is idealistic, insatiable, often dissatisfied, but always happy to make a discovery, nourishing this passion which makes us vibrate, again and again, even after years of practice.
From design to assembly, we carry out all stages of the pickup manufacturing in our workshop. Our goal is to offer you exclusive creations and great classics.
Design / Manufacturing
We carry out all stages of the manufacture of the electric guitar pickups that we market: drawing on Adobe Illustrator, laser cutting, modeling and 3D printing. For tools that we are not equipped with, we use external resources from third places in our territories: powerful laser, 3D printer, large-format CNC milling machine when necessary, carpentry workshop machine. Nothing is subcontracted, we control the production chain from A to Z!
The material requirement
All the components of an electric guitar pickup affect the final sound, hence the importance we place on their nature and quality. Two identically designed pickups will sound extremely different if one has ebony coils and the other carbon fiber. Knowing the impact on the sound of the materials used is necessary to make good custom pickups!
We work with the traditional parts used in the manufacture of electric guitar pickups. We also work raw raw material, and can push customization and personalization to the extreme to offer products without equivalents on the market. What you find in our range of Custom Pickups, you are sure not to find elsewhere!
Anthony Ceccarelli officially opens the Cecca Guitars workshop in 2019 after 30 years of instrumental practice and a career as a professional guitarist.
Discovery of the spring of Bourges 1995 with the band “Gazoline Kings”, graduated from the “Centre Musical et Créatif de Nancy” (now Music Academy International – MAI) in 1996, Anthony Ceccarelli’s career is rich in encounters and very varied musicles sty (funk, metal, experimental jazz, music of the world). After several years in other professional spheres, his first passion for the sound of the guitar takes over. The first pickups and instrument customizations were born, followed by the opening of the Cecca Guitars workshop.
