Thanks Darryl ! Glad you liked it ! Greeeeettssszz A.D.

P.S. Darryl hi, by chance I came across the comment you sent on August 5, 2016 to Phil Hale: «Just for a clarification...» See my posting «Ok Scott, let's speak about ethics and respect...» and the discussion that followed from December 31, 2016 in «joes flatpickup». Seems I'm alone to speak clear text with our friend: his best contribution to low impedance pickup design would be to shut up for a month and study a textbook about elementary electrotechnics. Or is this thread kind of electrotechnical kindergarden? Have a good day!

Darryl hi, we have lost a lot of the early discussions because the license plate pickup thread has disappeared. SO SAD, TOTAL DISASTER!

I know exactly what you mean, I think a few people came to the same conclusion, including me.
Take Care

Hey Darryl , you're a  lucky bunch of buggers over there . I only found CW Stoneking by accident last summer while looking at some "Blues" section in HMV Bristol ... which typically touts Joe Bonamassa stuff lol ! I was'nt on line apart from work so took a chance on buying all 3 cd's at once and wasn't let down . I was drawn in partly  by the imagery and the fact the guy has a reclaimed valve amp called Kelvin ;-)

Hi There Darryl ! Thanks for the nice compliment ! Glad you liked it, you must bee wondering down under whats that dutchie got to do whit Old Ned, got me a Sister living on Tasmania Australia  ,when you got famely living there you tend to get more in to the lay of the land so to speak, but for real i got interested in the story way back in the 60 when mick Jagger started making a movie about him,( Like the Other one better Tho) Thanks & Greeeeettsszzz A.D.

Thanks for the add mate - weird, I thought we already were too! Would appreciate some pics thanks. I will be attempting a neck through for my first attempt, and, lacking a router I will be attempting to cut the cavities with a drill and chisels :)

At 8:35am on March 27, 2015, The Phrygian Kid said…
Yeah mate that'll buck for sure. You can shield the cavities but lately I prefer to just shield the coil itself, a layer of grounded foil around the outside works great, stick it back in your winder and hide that under a wee bit of sewing thread and a splash of superglue.
At 4:14pm on March 2, 2015, Scott aka Farmer Ted said…

Thanks Darryl, request accepted. Thanks for looking into the pickup winding counter info. I already have a sewing machine set up, and have been using it. But now I need to make consistent winds for humbucking applications. Cheers.
