In the beginning...
Back in 2014, when we still had dull day jobs, Matt was changing the pickups in his guitar and had a brainwave. What if he didn't need to mess around with all of this soldering and de-soldering? Surely, there must be a better way?
It turns out the best way to find out if your idea is a good one, is to give it a go.
Starting with just a few orders a month and working from a spare bedroom, our time-saving, gear-improving solderless harnesses are now played by thousands of guitarists globally. We are also privileged to have a growing list of excellent international dealers.
Surely, there must be a better way?
What drives us?
Continually improving our unique mix of intuitive design and uncompromising quality, to produce the world's best sounding and easiest to install Pro-Wired Electronics for your guitar or bass.
The ObsidianWire team
Even though we have since moved out of the spare bedroom and into a proper workshop, we are still a small family business. Matt and Caitlin run things behind the scenes; from designing the boards to building this website, answering your emails and setting up product photos.
We also have three fantastic staff members taking care of production, quality control, good banter and packing.
Occasionally in the school holidays the kids come in to supervise and offer their expert opinions.
We are completely invested in ensuring you fall in love with
your guitar all over again.
What sets us apart?
We back our products and appreciate those who support them.
