A while back I ordered two HB pickup kits and a Tele bridge pickup kit from Stewart Macdonald.

A few weeks ago I wound up a humbucker and the Tele pickup. I tried them in one of my home made Teles I had a set of EMG;s in. I liked the bridge pickup a lot but I wound another HB and decided I wanted that guitar a dual HB after all (I have two other teles with tele bridge pickups).

The bridge pickup reads 8.3 K ohm with the neck one at 7.6 K ohm. They sound really clear and crisp, the neck one is warm as hell to boot.

It was a fun and fairly easy thing to do, but I wouldnt want to do a lot of them.

I didnt wax pot them, but they are fine and dont squeal or anything.

Just something else to try!

Very cool! I'm envious.

I bet you'd notice a change in tone if you wax potted them. It's amazing how dull and lifeless many factory pickups sound. Sometimes I start to question my ears, then I hear good pickups and I know everything is fine. The difference between my Epiphone Dot and Godin LG humbuckers is amazing! I will replace the Epiphone's pickups when I can...hadn't considered making my own until now.

Peace, Mooh.
