"Ugly Mutt" lol, doesn't sound too bad for an unloved dog. No problem pulling pinch harmonics out either.[SC]https://soundcloud.com/jetfixxxer/15001b[/SC]
Sorry for my playing. I'm starting to not like hearing myself.
I'm calling this the Ugly Mutt.. It's put together with extra slugs and screws of mixed of 1018, 1020, and 1215. I also mixed wire on one bobbin. Portion of the wire is the "brown" 42PE which came from a bobbin that I didn't solder well at the start. Then the remaining wire was the normal stuff I get the "orange" wire. The slug side is the first bobbin I used the cloths pin to hold my wire. The screws are scattered.
DCR = 7.9
Magnet = V
Slugs = 5360
Screws = 4700 <--- this is an estimate. I tried to hit 5500, but it didn't work and I ended up going off the bobbin. I had to back track.
I got the base and some other items from Philadelphia Luthier which I'm happy with. Great shipping prices as well.
I tried selling it a few times, but people just want to beat me up on the price.Why not trade the SG for a 50/60 Tribute.. or get a kit....
NM: I would have done the same thing as it's a lot more satisfying doing it yourself..
Here's my 6th I had it installed in my 2012 Studio neck position, but was replaced by another. I placed it in my really cheap Strat knock off. It's just sitting in there and really not secure.
Strat - Bridge
Les Paul - Neck
BP, like Sinster, I can't really hear a dif between alloys in poles/slugs, though I suspect, much like caps, it has a lot to do with the cork
The original paf pups (of which, most sounded like shvt) were a grab bag of whatever gibby could get for cheap, just like the variety of mags used.
I can hear a dif in winds, mags, & baseplates, but screws/slugs no, not really, no
I'm trying to squeeze in some winding time, busier than a one armed paper hanger atm.Today I figured out my winding songs
I was using a metronome to help me keep a steady and repeatable hand traverse wind pattern, but it puts me to sleep
So while winding some coils last night and today instead of just setting my metronome to 3/4 time and having it tick away I wound in time to Dead Melodies by beck for my 3/4 scatter and some Katy Perry song that the kids have on the play list for my 4/4 winds
I guess it only matters if you need to be able to replicate a wind but I am looking at going into "Mass production" since I sold several of my pickups in the last couple of weeks
That's a lot of winds on a bobbin, surprised it fitHere's my fourth pickup that I wound.. It was installed in my 2012 Studio where the Ugly Mutt use to reside. Once again I installed it in the really cheap 25.00 strat..

Sounded somewhat brighter in the strat, but it did well in the LP too.
I've decided to take a short break, to finish up the sg project, then I think I'll start back with the hybrids.
Keep winding em up gents.
Sweet!!. 43 is fun, lots of things to do with it that's not the same old same old. Sounds like you're well on your way.I've wound a few pickups over the last month.
I wound a few double vintage specs pickups for someone who builds custom guitars. I didn't record any of those, but he is suppose to do a video review.
I wound a Telecaster bridge pickup and my first 43AWG Hexhead pickup.
The Hexbucker was wound for the same person. Being it's my first 43AWG wind I did record it.
The pickup is just placed in the bridge position of strat copy. It's not secured in place so you might hear the pickup bouncing a little.
Here's the pickup before completed. I will be winding a neck for this one as well.
No sound clip as of yet for the tele pickup.

Congrats on the hookup with the builder, post up a link when the vid reviews come out, love to check em out.
I've been so busy with other projects, I haven't wound anything for over a month. When/if things settle back down, I need to get back at it, all the parts are here, I just need to make time to get to em.
Hey Sinster, glad to see your still at it.Here's a Hybrid I wound. Been pretty busy and haven't been winding much. This one took a while to finish because of that.
This is installed in a cheap SG Kit in the neck position.. The first portion is my Egnater 20 with tubes mix at 12 and wattage at 9 o'clock position. The second portion where is clean is my Tubemeister 18 at 5w. I go a little dirty and then boost a point.
Hey Sinster, glad to see your still at it.
What kind of hybrid you got there?
Sounds kinda promising.
Still haven't got back at it yet, but winter is coming. I've got a couple coils lying in wait, 43awg, that I started for a hybrid set for the SG. Just been too busy to get around to winding up the 42 coils yet.
Glad you're keeping after it, & it's sounding good
