Greetings from The Melkisethian Family

We are a small business specializing in parts for guitars and amps.  We offer Genuine Fender parts, Gretsch parts, Gibson parts, Lindy Fralin Pickups, Hammond transformers and a wide assortment of chassis, tubes, sockets, capacitors, resistors, wire, connectors etc. for amp builders. We have been serving musicians and hobbyists worldwide since 1977. 

Please Note that we are strictly mail order, we do not have a walk in retail location.  Our telephone hours are from 10 AM to 4PM East Coast Time, Monday through Friday. We don't ship on Saturday or Sunday.

In 1996 we took our Angela Instruments Catalog on-line at We try to ship orders within 1-3 business days and many orders are shipped the same day as received. Special orders and out of stock items will be shipped as soon as we receive the goods.

Hammond items are ordered as we get orders and may be drop shipped via U.P.S. directly from Hammond in Buffalo NY. Drop shipped orders usually ship within a few days and non-drop shipped in about a week. If you would like to order a specific Hammond part number and you don't see it on our website just send us an email and we can let you know price and availability.  

We list all of Lindy's wide array of pickups. We stock quite a few but the listings do not reflect what is in or out of stock.  Call or email if you want to check stock on a particular pickup.   Out of stock Lindy Fralin pickups can take from 1-4 weeks to ship, we will let you know the approximate time frame.  Fralin pickups are handmade in Richmond Virginia and if you have custom specs just let us know.

 For our many Fender parts we try to keep our website up to date to reflect what is in stock, when we sell out of a part an "Out of Stock" message will appear on the listing. The website will not let you order a quantity that is larger than our stock, an error message will appear and you can hit the back arrow and order a smaller quantity.   For out of stock Fender items the time frame is 1-2 weeks unless the part is on Fender Backorder which can take months.  If this is the case we will let you know and you can cancel or you can keep your backorder and we will ship as soon as we get it. We use the Fender part number as our item number.  We get our Gretsch parts from Fender. We get shipments from Fender just about every day so our inventory is very dynamic. If you would like to order a specific Fender part number and you don't see it on our website just send us an email and we can let you know price and availability.
