    Lightbulb PAF HELP?

    Hi, can somebody of PAF Winders describe me how to start to wind, give me some tips for beginning and tell me materials for PAF that you are using if this is not secret? I'm interesting of building a couple sets for my guitars of A4 pickups, but I do not know which exactly materials I need use for bobbin, plate, etc.
    I need some links of stores to buy material and for PAF style pickups, what will you recommend me?
    Cheers

    Seems that you didn't spend a lot of time looking at the site, as I suggested you... anyway, that's your first clue:

    There is tons of winding info on the web.
    Once you start winding on your pickups, you can also ask more specific questions.

    The OP may have read Lt. Kojak's post and found enough homework to keep them busy for a few days. They'll be back when they're ready to assimilate more.

    It was his first and only post.
    I figure he forgot he joined.
    This isn't the first time that has happened here.
