Hi and thanks for all the good info here.
I am looking for a referral to a good pickup maker, I would really like to buy from somebody connected to this forum, or with a recommendation from here.
I'm looking for Humbuckers to go in my Les Paul style builds.
yeah you know I am making a living as a guitar player and I am all about supporting small independent businesses, artists, musicians, guitar builders - we are all in the same boat. I live in Guitar Center hell here in LA and I REALLY want to give my business to somebody with a small home business, haha...
It's way more fun too, I got in touch with some really cool people during my hunt for wood suppliers, parts, bridges, all of it. StewMacDonalds is fast and easy, I'll give them that, but also expensive....!
Lollar has a great book on rewinding pickups and making a pickup winder.
Duncans and Dimarzio can't go wrong with those.
