    HI
    No I didn't found the rupture. I think it was l. potted, because the inner wires were quite loose. I tried to unwind but the wire snapped once, and I cutted the coil because I was in a hurry.

    It works usually. Not always. I had just a '74 Jazz Bass PU that had a broken coil inside (∞ Ω). It had plain enamel wire and 'has' tape around the magnets. Magnets had no rust or other corrosion. No...

    Hi
    I'm quite positive I made correct measuring.
    I used a Finnish product, PRF 7-78.
    Yes I think we did. I wrote my spray experiments.
    I'm not saying that spray+heat etc. cures all PUs, but it...

    I just measured ( Fluke 179) my '65 P pickup. To my delight it shows ∞ ohms between the start and the magnets . Before it shows 140 kΩ between the start and a magnet. My "treatment" seems to...

    HI
    Thank you all answering.
    Resoldering is worth of trying all (decades) old solder joints. Also in amps and effects.

    Thanks answering, Helmholtz.
    I mean the chain of events why a working vintage 7ender PU dies by itself. Not by a screwdriver or pushing the magnets. ;)

    As we know many old 7ender PUs tend to die. Has somebody good explanation why this happens?
    What I have found sometimes the magnet gets rusty (?), and that swells and breaks the thin insulation or...

    HI
    Thank you. First link was new to me. I believe too, that the code is 185473, and the year is 1973. The PU code markings seem to vary much more than other codes (pot, neck etc.).
    The pots are...

    Hi
    I was a bit imprecise plus I measured when the PU was on the bass. Now, when the PU taken out I get A 1340 Gs. It's 18 mm long. The E mag is 17 mm. The length measurements are not so precise...

    Yes I tried different magnet strength on '51 type PU. But I always ended "full strength", what I could get with a wise and neodymes. Perhaps on guitar degaussing has more use.
