As the name suggests, the new Reddick Guitars Voyager Modular Guitar has interchangeable pickup modules and controls. Designed by Ian Reddick, the guitar actually looks well thought out and compares well to other modular guitar designs we’ve covered in the past.

The concept isn’t new. We’ve already seen modular guitar systems from Fern Guitars and Pons Guitars. But personally, I think Ian Reddick may have the best design and system yet.

The basic construction of the Reddick Guitars Voyager Modular Guitar is pretty standard. You get an ash, walnut or cherry body, and a 25.5″ scale-length maple neck. The neck comes loaded with a 9.5″ to 16″ compound radius, 22-fret Katalox (Mexican Ebony) fretboard. So apart from the Katalox fretboard, which is not wood I am particularly familiar with, it has all your regular tonewoods used for construction.

Where things get really interesting is with the interchangeable pickup modules and control layout. You can change these on the fly, without unplugging your guitar. Since output is muted when you remove them, you could do this live, during a gig! The pickup modules employ a clever magnet system to stay in place, making the swaps seamless. The control section does have a finger-twisted screw that locks it into place, so may take a bit longer to swap out.

Pickup Modules

Pickup modules can be purchased separately at $199 each. You get a choice of twin humbucker layouts similar to a Les Paul, three single-coils like on the Stratocaster, as well as T-style twin single-coil setups. Reddick even offers to build you a custom pickup configuration of your design.

One response to “Swap pickups mid-gig with the new Reddick Guitars Voyager Modular Guitar”

  1. Jon Vecellio says:

    I have one of the 2008 Gibson Push-Tone Les Pauls. You can swap pickups easily but I never do it. The P94’s that came with it are great so I haven’t changed pickups in years. These modular instruments are cool and all but once you find a great sounding set, it’s just another guitar.
