The 8.8k 3-Pole hand wound West Australian Sheoak “Mortal Coil” Pickup, which is hard wired to the Jack, is a bit of a departure from my usual “Tight Arse” ways of using cheap Ebay Chinese & second hand Mag Pups, and was well worth the extra money spent, and while my hearing isn’t all that acute these days, I’m pretty sure there is difference, it does sound great !!!.
Done more as an experiment than anything else, the wiring is also a departure from my normal way of doing things, in that I used Auto Electrical Terminals rather than soldering, cost a few bucks extra, but works just fine :-d
