    I just woke up my girlfriend to make her read this. Back in December she thought it was so awesome that I was giving away some stuff to broke kids, and even more so that another member here wanted to fund another set of pickups to be given away.

    She said "Congratulations Dean, that's so awesome!" …then kissed me, took my half drank beer and walked back into the bedroom. What a women!

    I'm going to announce the 2nd winner of the NAMI of Frederick County MD charity donation contest tomorrow. I'm not sure if they are an MLP member, and am trying to figure it out. It wasn't necessary to be for that part of the giveaway, I just want to find their username, if possible. Thanks for your patience on that. Lots of excitement for tonight anyway. :cheers:

    That would ROCK dude! You know you always got a place to crash in the East Village where there's tons of gear and cold beer, right? :thumb:

    I've got a few things in the works, debating which guitars might need a new set. Maybe a True59 set. Maybe a JPP set. Maybe a custom set with a JPP neck in the bridge (since I am in love with that pickup you sent me) and something else in the neck...VLO? Maybe I'll just ask you to do something awesome and see what I wind up with? :laugh2: All the stuff you mentioned you're working on... sounds epic. I look forward to reading more about'em!

    The new band I've started is going to cut a record this summer - and I intend to do much of it with ReWind pickups. Hell, if you made some telecaster pickups, ALL of it would be RW. [hint hint] :naughty:

    Once we start booking gigs, I'll find a way to get to Frederick!

    Cheers to you dude; cheers to all the winners; cheers to a great cause; and cheers to a great - and continuing - thread! :cheers:

    Congratulations, Dean! :thumb: You went above and beyond for your donation, and I couldn't think of a better person to receive these pickups. You're a great man! :applause:

    Ok! I got ahold of winner #2 this evening.

    He is a member here, actually. Not a requirement to win this part, but very cool nonetheless! So...

    I'm extremely proud to announce that MLP member "Thrashmetl", Kyle Johnson, is the second winner of the NAMI of Frederick County MD charity donation contest! :applause:

    He and I have been working on some custom VLO humbuckers for a Tele of his. He's been an absolute pleasure to work with and we've had some great conversations about music and gear and such while working things out on the pickups.

    Congratulations, Kyle! I look forward to building you some more pickups when you decide which set you want. Thanks for being a supporter of ReWind Electric and NAMI of Frederick County, MD!

    I think we're going to be hearing/seeing some very cool demos in the next day or so.
    I've been getting sample clips from one of the reviewing artists. I'm pretty impressed, of both the playing and tone. :D

    I've been hoping for some demos! they always keep my level of excitement peaked when looking forward to new toys. in the meantime I guess I'll keep shopping for new 500k pots to be ready to upgrade to 50s wiring

    Thanks! I can't wait for the set, I've decided upon the Post72 set, been on a T-Top kick recently and with all the crazy amounts of pickup knowledge roaming around in James's head I know these things are going to be killer. Hate to say it, but I've never learned any Zep. I'm going to have to learn some so I can demo them for y'all.

    based on how he sounds, this guitar is now called (in baby versions as i was raised to not swear in public)

    the bitch (the boohatch) or the motherfu**er, which would be the muddafudda.

    can't decide which!
