I'm working on a Mini Bucker project.
This is an alternative to making the firebird mini bucker with the magnets in the bobbins.
This pickup will use steel blades in conjunction with a large humbucker magnet on the bottom.
Pictures illustrate the replacing of the mini screws with a hand made blade.
Picture 1 & 2 shows using the mini screws, like a regular Gibson mini deluxe.
This layout would require a cover with screw holes.
Picture 3 & 4 shows replacing the screws with a blade type slug.
I cut the blades from some scrap sheet steel.
The blade is against the magnet on one side like the screw type pickup.
The other blade slug is shorter and sits on top of the edge of the magnet.
This allows the use of a No holes cover.
I will test this pickups with different magnet types.
I will show pictures of it assembled later after I put it together.
