Pickup making supplies...


Recommended Posts

Maybe i didn't look good enough.. but.. I couldn't find the answer in the supply section..

I know where to get wire.. but.. where do I get bobbins, base plates, pole pieces, and magnets?

well personaly i like the neodym type rare earth magnets myself. did you know that if you ask people like seymour duncan for some dead pickups to practice on he will hook you up.

i asked him for a friend of mine some time ago, and i got like half a dozen or so dead pickups that i canibalized and started with and he also gave me a list of places to shop for the other parts u mentioned.

anyway hope that can help somewhat
