The first link is the Amazon entry for a book, like a few I’ve found [such as a Joe Pass method book and The Peavey Revolution], that isn’t available in a hard copy from Hal Leonard anymore.

Lots of Hal Leonard’s books are available from the company as eBooks, and if you are American, on Kindle. Some are available in Canada on Kobo, but most, including this one, are available from iBooks.

The Peavey chapter was a nice clear read with good illustrations. I particularly appreciated the writeup on horseshoe and steel guitar pickups.

I have the Hunter book. It's a reasonably comprehensive coverage of commercially-available pickup types, and comes with a CD with sound samples.

I recommend hanging out at the Pickup Makers subforum at MEF. People are pretty generous with their knowledge, and some higher-profile makers like Jason Lollar, Rick Turner, Wolfe McLeod, and Frank Falbo turn up intermittently. Probably some of the most valuableinformation comes from the old-timers who engage in experiments,
