Hesitant to comment again, but here goes, the chase for a thin/ultra thin pup was very evident here in my early days, Elmar nailed it, combined with grace and an admirable attitude, he shared his knowledge, and many experimented and found it to be a winner in action, as said by others, this IS a forum for ideas, and expansion of those ideas, and long may it be so, but acknowledgement is a nice "tip your lid" to the originator
Hey Wayfinder, I hope you know that people on here appreciate what you do, and the work that you have put into the products that you make. This particular hobby can't grow without people like you.
Trademarks protect the identity of a product and producer
Patents protect a novel/unique design of a specific "thing" that is either the first of its kind or more innovative than an "expected evolution of the existing art"
Trade Secrets and Intellectual Property rights are legally respected protections of undocumented processes/procedures/materials/etc that are essential to the uniqueness of the patented item's production.
Copyrights protect the expression of an intangible idea (a story is the ideas contained in the writing, not the media it is published upon).
you'll be pleased to know joe's has stopped making them I ask him how much etc and this is his reply
Sorry but I don't make flatpick ups any more because I'm very busy with guitar building and woodworking.
Thats why I made the tutorial . Cheers,Joës
I don't see flatpup in there do you?
honestly I don't know what all the fuss about one video its not even a complete from start to finish.
some of you need to grow up,nobody is infringing on anybody so called rights because there is no rights. this has rear its ugly head in the past and Ben had to step in and the way things are going ..........
Cool story. Many years ago a CBN/Clubhouse member really wanted to know how I made my pickups - EVERY DETAIL. He (and his bandmate) travelled almost 2 hours to my shop and still pestered me, after a cool jam. I relented and made one from scratch for him.
Shortly after, he was online boasting that he knew the secret to my pickups and had some for sale cheaper than me, and even posted a pic of one on a copy of a copper pipe git he saw me building in my shop.
Little did he know, I suspected as much and I told him all the wrong specs - wire size, number of winds, what I wrapped around the magnets, potting and even tension on my winds.
He's not around anymore
