"I think they sound brilliant for the price (The minihumbucker - I haven't used one of the chrome tele neck pickups). If you coil tap them I have found you get the best sounds using the Seymour Duncan Esquire wiring diagram…"
Looking for ideas on adding a pickup of some kind to my mandolin. Problem is that I only have $50 invested in the mandolin so I'm looking for something as inexpensive as possible. I would really prefer a mag pup for better output and control. I've thought about maybe using a bass guitar pickup but I'm unsure how to install it with no access to the insides of the mando.

Hi Tom, Nice to have you for a nation friend. I looked at your photos and vids and remembered commenting on your 'Brothers' photo. Good vids, Nasty is very good. Your big bottom 3 string bass interests me as I am working on a 30 inch scale 3 string bass. I don't know much about basses.... Fun to see your back in the day photo and to see you now.

Looking at your new profile picture, I bet you were a rocker in your youth and you belonged to a great rock band. Thanks for sharing Mr. Lanford!
