A little history

is sometimes a good thing. I finished a book on the history of pickups that I found very informative. A good look into the major players in the 40's and 50's. There was also some information on technical considerations when designing and winding a pickup. It made me re-think my approach to magnet and winding combinations. Went into some detail about magnetic field shape and it's effect on tone. I felt it was an excellent book that can only have a positive impact on my pickups.

I have also started the auctions again now that I am caught up with some orders that I have had since August.

It's not on my site but I have started making 7-string pickups. I've made 3 or 4 sets so far with great results.
