  1. Hey everyone, Thanks for your replies! Yes,...

    Hey everyone,
    Thanks for your replies!

    Yes, these are definitely NOT Fender pickups.
    They do come pretty close in spec - BUT, (I think I mentioned this somewhere above) they really don't sound...

    Here's a photo of another pickup that I found that has a bobbin exactly like mine. Notice how sharp the edges of the gray bobbin are:

  3. Real or Fake - Old (65-66?) Fender Strat Bobbins

    PHOTOS BELOW***

    I saw these on eBay from a seller who recently inherited a bunch of his dads old guitars. Among his listings were a bunch of 60's Fender gear and pickups, then he had these listed...

    That's great to hear! It takes some persistance, but well worth it when you have a clean spool again.

    I've actually found that most of the wire gets bundled up in the vacuum cleaner too - doesn't...

    I buy used, vintage spools on eBay all the time, and pretty much nobody knows how to properly ship this stuff - that being said, I've developed an excellent method for fixing damages spools!

    It's...

    I'll probably go that route eventually, even if it's just to try it out. How would you recommend cutting them down to size (.688", .710, etc.)? I'm not much of an expert on the available machining...
  8. I too had some issues with them not shipping my...

    I too had some issues with them not shipping my order a few weeks ago. I ended up having to call about the order. They provided a "pre-shipment" label, and told me it was on its way - I can't stand...
  9. Yes! I've been making some Blues pickups...

    Yes! I've been making some Blues pickups (Reverse-Polarity, 'Peter Green' Style), as well as some vintage-style Strat, Tele and Lap Steel pickups - I'm working on getting some more designs that...

    These are all great tips, thanks so much!



    Say... is that the same felt my drummer uses to keep tension on the cymbals??

    I really like the idea of using the spring scale to measure tension,...

    Well, whatever I did with that first set, must've been right. I've been selling that model (with the slightly hotter specs) to Gibson-lovers, and they seem to be very happy so far.

    Re-named it...

    Found some on amazon, but only from China. I'll likely be getting a larger order of these, because I already purchased a bulk supply of chinese bobbins, not realizing they are not only a different...
  13. Looking for .195" Humbucker Slugs (For Epiphones)

    I'm looking for a relatively small amount (just 60 total for) of the .195" Humbucker Slugs from someone who can get them to my home in California quick.
    I've looked everywhere, can't find anybody...

    Here are some images of his temorary fix:
    50033
    50034

    He said the pickup sound 100x better now.

    I've got another customer coming in with a 50's Lap Steel that has gone completely dead. I had...

    Just heard back from him

    He was able to fix the issue by replacing the ground wire connecting the bridge to the rest of the circuit and giving his output jack a more solid ground connection....

    Hey T,

    Thanks for that advice. I wasn't too sure when I saw the aluminum in there - looked pretty sketchy for sure. I'm seeing now though that the same material is in that picture you showed me,...
  17. Gibson Ultratone Lap Steel P90 - question regarding tone

    Hey there, I've got a customer with the original p90 in their Gibson Ultratone Lap Steel. They are complaining that no matter what, this thing is just too trebly for them. I'm not sure if it's the...

    I'd imagine either sheet metal OR wood screws will work, as long as they have a sharp point on them, and are the right size.

    From what I've gathered, the reason to use brass over stainless is...

    I think they're #2 x 3/8" sheet metal screws - I've been getting the brass ones here:

    Tried these with the covers off- they sound better, though they do still have quite a bit of microphonics there.
    My guess is that I must've wound these a little too loose? I'm gonna try another set...

    Hey Sooner Boomer,

    It sounds like you're trying to build another inductor to 'induce' sound into your pickup. If so, here's a great resource for building a test coil, and sending the signal to a...

    Hey T, thanks for the reply

    I used the 42 AWG Poly wire from Remington for these.
    When measured from the end of the P'Up wire at 74 F, they read

    Neck: 7.76 kOhms
    Bridge: 7.95 kOhms

    They...
  24. 1st Pickup Build - Handwound Humbucker

    Hey there,

    After doing an exhausting amount of research on the art of pickup building/winding the past few months, I finally got a MojoTone winder and started to wind my own pickups.

    The first...
