Due to increased demand and limited supply and production capacity Krivo Pickups are now almost exclusively direct from maker: most pickups are effectively built and shipped as they are ordered. Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery of your handmade artisan pickup.
My cherished customers may not realize that each and every Krivo Pickup is handmade by me—Jason Krivo Flores—personally. Every turn of wire passes through my hands every joint is soldered by me and every package is shipped by myself. I do not have employees: you are receiving an authentic handmade artisan pickup. In the past three years my pickups have surged in popularity and demand has risen dramatically I can no longer afford to discount my pickups 30 to 50% to sell wholesale to retail dealers. I lose 40-70$ per pickup which adds up to many thousands of dollars per year, plus my pickups are so in demand I am almost always sold out and back-ordered. Often, when I am sold out customers just order from a dealer...who places an order with me, then I have a backlog of orders and I have to sell for 40% discount while being behind. This is unsustainable as I am already making pickups 50 hours a week.
The only solutions to the above conundrums would be:
Raise my prices significantly.
Hire employees, thus negating the artisan personal nature of my art form and increasing my tax burden and liabilities, or:
Sell directly to customers worldwide from my website and make 30% to 50% more per item and be less backlogged...
Therefore to keep prices low and quality high, I am only retaining my legacy dealers who have been with me since the beginning and each USA dealer is limited to their one specialized model: Bass Pickups for Gollihur music and the Micro-Manouche for Djangobooks.com: Thank you for understanding. This way I can keep my current low prices through the remainder of 2021. Prices will increase in 2022 after the music scene recovers.
