Trev Wilkinson's early exposure to the legendary sounds of guitar greats greatly influenced his own playing and future in music. Hank Marvin's use of vibrato sparked Trev's interest in a device that would later become an integral part of the Wilkinson brand.

The tone and sound created by other iconic players such as Clapton, Beck, and Green also had a profound impact, as did the instruments and components that produced these tones.


The R series of pickups represents the culmination of years of meticulous listening, research, and development. Drawing on his extensive experience and collaborations with industry pioneers like Seth Lover and Leo Fender, Trev focused on every aspect of sound, materials, and production methods.

This attention to detail is evident in the exceptional quality of the R series, making them the pinnacle of Wilkinson's pickup offerings.
