Building a 3-pole single coil pickup

"Hi T-Belly. Appreciate your wise comments! I will probably only get to about 10 turns before the wire snaps but will persevere! I can't imagine how long it has taken you to hand-wind a bobbin with say 7,000 turns! Although you say it is very…"

Building a 3-pole single coil pickup

Hi All. I'm busy trying my hand out at building a 3-pole single coil pickup for my next CBG (probably a Steampunk). I have started the construction of the bobbin and am using 3 Alnico 5 pole pieces. I have built a jig for putting on the 42AWG copper wire onto the bobbin. I bought a Chinese-made magnetic induction LED counter to count the number of turns. Has anyone got experience of building there own 3-pole single coil pickup and do you have some words of advice? Many thanks! ... IanSee More
