"Jim, I can make any configuration that the customer asks for. I don't build them adjustable because it would add to the cost and time to build them. I have a complete machine shop."

Steampunk guitar pickup

This is a custom Harrison Steampunk cigar guitar pickup that a friend and customer ordered. The wires will come out one of the main arteries on the left. Underneath it will have 4 magnets and wound a little hotter.

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
I heard your name on The Nation and looked you up.
What instruments are you building or playing?
I am not a musician yet. I am building a pickup winder out of an old Singer sewing machine that will have the look of a Rube Goldberg / steam punk . I will learn the delta blues on a cigar box guitar that I build. The whole process will be a journey through my imagination.

Bob, I am ready to order a pickup from you, but have a few final questions. On a 3 string,

Is the sound any different between A. art deco rail walnut and the art deco flathead

bakelite rail. B.Why is the Sultan of the delta pole $55.00 vrs. $75.00.

Thanks, Don Jensen

Thanks Bob. Most of the sides and backs I've built recently are out of .050 aluminum so it's real easy to form by hand. The tops of these are 1/8" birch ply. Amazing what will resonate.

Your pick ups are great, I guess I'll have to learn how to make them one day.

Cheers
