    Easy quick fix. Cover the wire with something to protect it, and take some fine sandpaper the the spool itself (area in pic circled in black)...then polish it with automotive polish and that wire will fly off at 800 mph without an issue.

    I'll take the first set please.

    Tried that first ;) the spool ends are loose likely from shrinkage and have the problem of the wire sneaking up under the lip so will snag internally if I try to pull it up over the edge.

    The metal (58) and plastic (60) spools don't have the issue but they don't shrink and swell over time as the wooden ones likely have. Sanding them down worked wonders!

    First and second sets are already spoken for as well...

    Those sound really good, wish there was a video of the black magic set as well somewhere.

    Another vid from Katsutoshi, this time it's the Roots '57 set. I gotta get this guy on the payroll! He starts giving them a real workout around 6:20.

    Unrelated to pretty much anything but my own curiosity, and just because it's way cool - are you still attaching the Sigil to the back of your vintage pickups?

    Today's mission:

    Respooling the 1960 wire by hand...plastic spools are too warped and 'sticky' to do it on the machine. I wasn't going to get into this stuff but I have a problem, especially with it just sitting there staring at me.

    Not great fun but not as bad as the wooden spools of 59 wire! I've repurposed two of those to hold the cloth wire. They were pure hell to unwind and a few didn't make it.

    Plowing ahead with a lot of things still working on the upcoming specialty sets with old wire, and something a little more modern! This is a back burner project but I had some time to play the other day :)

    Good stuff man. I bought a set of Georgia Bootlegs from you during the winter raffle. As soon as I get the guitar done I will do a demo video. I'm excited to see how they sound in my build!
