    Maybe you're not following parts of the conversation that haven't been explicitly fleshed out with schematics. Maybe the problem is that you jumped to a conclusion when you read post 22 on page 1...

    so I'd be looking at playing Cherokee about 30 times to get ~7500 winds for a single strat pickup? and do that 3 times to make 3 pickups?

    Dstrat, I'm interested that you have the same problem with "flat" pickups. As far as I can tell at this point, there are 3 main contributors to the problem:

  11. "Vintage" Strat Pickups for Compound Radius Necks?

    I don't get your idea of drift. That I personally wire them up to a DC source and refer to them as offsetters (or elevators, but never alligators) is separate from the objection that the VCT...
