I’ve built several CBGs, but I am building my first six string electric. This will be my first with a single coil pick up. It is a 23.5 inch scale. Where is the best location for the single coil pick up. I’ve looked through photos and people seem to put them in different places. See More
Hi Toad , in response to your post back in April My amps are Lm386 chip amps. If you have not built one yet try on or Gitty's amp kits. If you want to build one use a smoke amp plan or a Ruby amp plan if you want volume and gain controls. Here is a pic of the inside of my amps.
Howdy Harley. I designed the nail pickups on the Logjammer a bit different to what your doing. To go down your route with the single poles, I'd remove all the poles from the bobbin then get some slightly longer ones, fit the bobbin under the lid then push the new poles through making sure they come in contact with the magnet. Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
