Pickup Winding Techniques

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking of making some pickups totally from scratch. I sometimes use white and red oak since they are local and the other times I use maple. I have to use HBs because of the brightness of oak and maple in a neck thru design. I want to try to make my own bobbins out of hardwood. Does anyone have a tutorial on making pups from scratch or possibly a blow up diagram of a "generic" one that I can copy the principal from.

I Have found a magnetic wire supplier online but I am curious if any of you use a larger or smaller than normal wire size for an extremely fat sound which I will need for the bright tone wood I use.

any reccomended # winds?

backwoods :D
