I'm looking to build a bass from the ground, essentially.
I have a p-bass for a body, but intend on changing out all the other parts for and personally customized equipment made by me.
Right now, i want to build an amazing beast of a bass with astounding tone control, playability, and beauty.
For the pick ups I realize that every little detail of how the pick-ups are built is a variable in the process to the overall sound quality of the pick-up in the end. I'm trying to determine what the best type of magnetic material that can be used for the magnetic rods within precision pick up builds?
These are the materials I've found that could be used, thus far. Any suggestions?
