Abigail Ybarra Passes The Torch

It’s the end of an era. It’s amazing to think that for the entire history of rock music, pickups by Fender’s Abigail Ybarra have been there. Abigail was personally hired by Leo Fender in the 50s, and her hand-wound pickups are legendary. Abigail has passed the torch to the very capable Josefina Campos, who has been with Fender since 1991 and has been apprenticing with Abigail for the last few years.
