    Are the coils lacquer potted or waxed?

    They look like 1971 pickups to me

    This is true, as *only the signal* would be attenuated by the pot slider. The total resistance of the pot would always be across the pickup.
    Now would the pickup react differently if the volume pot...

    Actually, the OP's idea was a good one - to discuss *basic* differences in parts and finished pickups measurably, clearly, and distinctly. That could be useful to people like us, who need to make...

    If he's putting 7500 turns of 42 gauge wire he should be getting somewhere around 5.3 to 5.6K DCR... tops.

    I'm trying to wrap my mind around how these work. If you can get bearings small enough you should be able to make a traverse out of them

    He'll be back... with lawyers, guns and money

    I thought Duncan was famous for making this same type of stacked humbucking pickup

    I think you're right. I got the Arduino to react with enough speed to actually work OK, and I got the stepper and main drive motors to work too, but I bought a 3.5" color touchscreen for...

    Have anyone here tried to use an Arduino or Raspberry PI microcomputer to automatically control a pickup winder?
