seriously, you don't know what a pick up is?

well done jackass

srsly, its a big coil of wire which takes the movement of guitar strings and makes it into an electrical signal for your amp

basically it puts the electric in electric guitar...its like a microphone is for your voice


those 3 silver square things under the strings to the left of the black plastic bit are pickups
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

A pickup is basically a big square magnet under the strings of an electric guitar which turn string vibration into an electronic signal which is sent to an amp.
