    Here's a copy of John_H post on the main forum.
    Maybe he won't mind me borrowing his post!
    Goes good with all the bizarre pickups that get rewound!
    Great Pictures.

    The bizarre guitar pickup encyclopedia. It's too bad there isn't more info, but the high res pictures are good.

    I can't believe somebody actually wanted to rewind a Dirty Fingers.

    Man, what a tone-less p'up. The quintaessence of a one-trick pony. In my case, I couldn't even find the pony, but a stubborn donkey.







    I still have it, it's a 1978 one, wound on Schaller bobbins, taken out of a Koa Gibson Explorer. I might one day rewind it with PAF specs.

    Depends on the music you play.
    I rewound those for a metal player.
    He loves them!

    Yeah, I've figured that much.

    Unfortunately, IME, Metalheads are impervious to tone. Or at least what *I* consider tone is, that is...

    Man, do I sound like a triggered grandpa! Kids, get off my lawn!

    I'm oooooooooold...!

    A DiMarzio Chopper T Tele bridge pickup came into the shop yesterday. I have never dealt with one of these before. My question, is the Chopper T epoxy potted (or any such potting that is other than wax). It was in for excess micorphonics, but it looks and feels like it is not coming apart without a hammer. If it's epoxy, I can't see wax potting is going to get in there.

    More questions later on an Ernie Ball Stingray 4 Music Man bass pickup that came in with the Chopper T.


    ...........................................

    followup. . . wax potted per Dimarzio tech support.
