      So, what is this from. This picture popped up on my screen and I just had to ask.

      Ha...It’s the under side of a pickup from an early lapsteel guitar that was given to me. I guestimate it to be home made early ‘50s ish... horseshoe magnet, with laminated pole pieces and two round coil winds.

      It worked but is currently in pieces. One of many projects I haven’t got round to finish yet.

      How did it sound? I have considered winding a pup myself but there are so many good pups out there it almost seems pointless.

      I can’t recall, It must be 25 years... Back then I would often check wiring by simply holding a tuning fork over the pickup. All I know it gave a sound.

      Do it. It’s basically like any modding project. You won’t be saving any pennies, but the fun factor can not be expressed in money.
