Guitar World Verdict

A very neat and affordable guitar with serious potential courtesy of its innovative pickup-swapping feature.


  • +

    Smart, tidy, simplistic.

  • +

    New bridge, colours and improved price.

  • +

    Opens pickup-swapping potential to a wider audience.


  • -

    The trim price means no additional pickups are included so buying extra pickups involves quite an outlay.

  • -

    It’d be nice to see a coil-split switch.

Back at the start of 2021, the only way to experience Relish’s patented pickup-swapping feature was to buy the original Trinity by Relish electric guitar (made in Indonesia by Cor-Tek). 

This retailed at approximately £1,500 and came with a second set of pickups, or you could move up to one of Relish’s Swiss-built guitars that start at around £3k.
