We have Photo's stuck all around the forum.
Thought it would be good to have a thread to stick several in one place.
So Don't be shy, show off your creations.
Pickups, and Guitars with the pickups in them will both be great.
They have been around a bit, but I will start with some of my Pick guard stuff.

Makes me want to hide mine!
Your look fine! I almost didn't post the Gibson EB-0 pickup because it's kind of scrappy looking because of the copper tape.
Is there much difference in noise without the copper foil?
Is the foil just on the bottom?
On my strat blades I just put a small foil strip on the bottom, but they are hum buckers, not sidewinders.
No problem David I totally understand, just thougth I'd ask. BTW those look really good, nice work.
I have a good (repeat) customer that has been after me to make him a couple TBird pickups for some time. A while back a guy (maybe here) had some covers made but when I contacted him about getting a couple he wanted more for 1 pair of his covers than I get for the pickup so I had to pass.
(probably trying to make back his investment in tooling, on me)

Normally it covers the whole pickup. In this case the pickup is in a metal cover, so it was just on the bottom.Is the foil just on the bottom?
Sidewinders are also humbuckers. On the Strat rail pickups and my guitar humbuckers I just ground the blades unless they have metal baseplates, and then I ground that too.On my strat blades I just put a small foil strip on the bottom, but they are hum buckers, not sidewinders.

Finally got this beast finished.
Very impressed with the Steinberger Bridge setup.
This bass belongs to a small lady singer.
I can see why she likes it, it's short and light.
I took out a set of EMG actives.
**BTW I ended up all the poles level with the covers.
Don't want to hurt any fingers.
They have a 5 piece band, and play weekly in a Smoke filled 20x20 Bar Room.
The smoke alone would kill me.
That smoke residue gets on everything.
The bass had quite a bit of playing wear on it.
Surprised they wanted to spend the money on it, but She has had it since the 80s and likes playing it.
I talked to them today, they practiced last night, and she loved the way it sounded with the Passives in it.
The thread didn't say "beginners pickup pictures". My pictures certainly aren't. I say put the pictures back.
Here's a couple
