    Looking for a Set of P90s

    ok, I found the order. They are a stock early 50's "Cool A3 set", but with an A2/A3 combo in the bridge.

    Looking for a Set of P90s

    You'd have to remind me of your real name or PayPal email, so I could look up the order. I'm terrible about keeping track of people's real names in my system and screen names on the forums, sometimes. I really only make 3 P-90 sets, though - an early 50's A3 cool set which is very clear and...

    Ghost Winders Pickups?

    I put "Virgil Arlo" into an anagram finder online and the first two results were "gorilla ravioli" and "oral girl."

    Winding and resistance

    You're doing it backwards. If you are after a certain sound, you don't wind to DCR. You wind to turn counts and use appropriate magnets, to start. The DCR doesn't matter. It will be whatever it will be for your design when you are done.

    Slash aph2 humbucker coil wire for homemade build

    You've pretty much answered your own question - in a generic humbucker like a Duncan, using modern stock wire, generic humbucker bobbins, machine winding perfect coils, and building the coil starts like a Duncan (not like a PAF) - you can determine the wire gauge by the DCR. Really though...

    Slash aph2 humbucker coil wire for homemade build

    I get doing it for fun. Hence the second half of my post "if you're just doing it for the experience..." Why do you think the wire type is so important?

    Slash aph2 humbucker coil wire for homemade build

    Just buy the Duncans, if they have the sound you like. You've not going to be able to make a similar pickup for less money than Duncan, who is making hundreds of thousands (or more) humbuckers. If you're doing it simply for the learning experience, just start putting parts together and...

    I Love You CoolJuk

    I'm not saying no. Just consider that I can only cook BBQ food and tacos, before you decide. My idea of cooking breakfast is throwing night's left overs in a pan with some eggs. It's hit or miss.

    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    I wasn't able to attend SHOT Show this year (too close to NAMM, where my company exhibited) but I have been watching the videos and I think there's more exciting stuff being announced this year, compared to last. Here's some stuff I thought was cool. 3D Printed Titanium Suppressors from Sig...

    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    Mark Walters, host of the Armed American Radio talk show, has long done a segment of firearms and food pairings. I think it started mostly as a joke, perhaps based on the standing term "BBQ gun" even, but became popular and grew a little more serious over time. It may not be the start of the...

    PAFs for sale near me. PAF gurus, check it out, please.

    I'm not quick to call "fake", as I've seen many do that to legit pickups over some detail they just hadn't encountered yet or something that doesn't show up well in photos. I don't think decals are necessarily a good way to judge authenticity of a vintage Gibson pickup, anymore. ...unless the...

    PAFs for sale near me. PAF gurus, check it out, please.

    There's another set of fakes on Reverb right now. Don't buy these, either, folks: https://reverb.com/item/31470050-gibson-paf-patent-no-pickups (hookup leads, tape, feet shape, L-marks, solder - all wrong)

    PAFs for sale near me. PAF gurus, check it out, please.

    One coil is wound with red poly wire. Both hookup leads are 4 plait braid and white plastic insulated. There's solder and tape in places typical of 70's Gibson humbuckers. The two slotted / two Philips brass screws per pickup could be an indicator that someone slapped multiple pickup parts...
