After several failed attempts to wind a single pole pup I could certainly use some direction. Im using 42AWG wire and breaking or burning through every time. I think I could work with a slightly…Continue
Single humbucker (no split) with vol. and tone pots. (2) 32mm piezo's. 1 at neck and 1 mid. Off/on sw. for HB and 1 for the 2 piezo's. Also used a balance pot (not a blend pot) between the piezo's. Piezo balance works great and surprisingly good…
"Wow can't wait to see it. Somehow I'm sure it will turn out well!
Now seems to be an appropriate time to ask this question.... Do mistakes lead to a better build? They have for me. Some of my most favorable results were achieved by adding…"
"Thanks Wayfinder..... I appreciate your feedback and will definitely put it to use. Im gonna take a trip down to see Ted soon. He has offered his help with this as well. You know every build offers its own set of challenges. I learn something with…"
"Thanks Ted, I appreciate any critique you might have. I used to build extremely distressed pallet furniture and you will probably see it in some of my builds. I've taken a liking to chuggers. Fun to build with the most basic materials. You can…"
"Wow! Patience is a virtue you must posses! I haven't built a winder yet. Wanted to experiment a little before taking that step. I have hand wound (literally) and used a drill. The winding improved with each try. Most of my breakage was while…"
Over many years I've accumulated a box full of 42 wire that I've broken while winding. I usually have a 0% failure rate the past few years. I've learned the proper tension to guide the wire as I use my winder.…"
