    Wow, this is a bit of a shock! Do what you need to do Alex. I hope in the end you continue your thriving craft. I'm really excited about having set #7! They are fantastic Alex!

    God bless you!

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune Alex.
    Now it seems it is my misfortune as well as I was going to order a pair of your pickups next week.
    I was sold after listening to Nico's fantastic sound clips!

    We all hope thing work out for the best for you....soon!!!

    I had the opposite experience. I waited for what seemed like forever for my Dave Stephens pups and while they were fine, they didn't have the magic I had hoped for. I sold them about a month after.

    The Wizz PAF's I have are magical! Head and shoulders better:dude:!

    To each their own, or whatever that saying is...

    That must hurt Alex. I have faith that you will recover from this misfortune and be back up doing well soon.

    These are great times for us guitarists as there are quite a few really great "PAF stype pup's" being produced by several talented winders today :thumb:

    Which are "the best"...
    Impossible to say...

    My Wizz set has the "hollow tone" and the "mid bark" typically associated with a great "Paf" and I´m sure that "Paf style pickups" by other winders show these qualities as well.

    I´m really happy with my Wizz pu's, and I hope that Alex comes back to this craft again!

    Are you saying that they got soaked in water somehow? I thought that liquids that are allowed must be in leak proof containers. But than figuring out how isn't important, just make sure future sets are in some kind of liquid proof packaging, like in heat-shrink plastic bags.

    I'd put in claims with them, they are insured up to certain amounts weather or not you cover them for full value, and than the sets could be sold as they are as long as they check out to be electronically functioning. I'd bet all that needs to be done is to change the leads, and the patina is probably evan better. Copper don't rust, the steel will but if the acids are neutralized, the rust on the steel shouldn't cause any serious damage. At worst they could be used to make new sets and re-wound.

    Maybe they could be sold as extra reliced :cool:

    I decided to try to - if possible - minimize the squeal from my bridge pickup when playing really loud/gainy stuff. I desoldered the cover (soldered by me, not by Alex) placed some extra double sticky tape on the bobbins and took extreme care of getting to cover really really tight when soldering it back.

    I now can play as loud as I need to with zero feedback :thumb:

    The Wizz set is again installed in my favorite Gold Top, making it an even better instrument than before :dude:
