i want to make a set of pickups on my own, but i'm apprehensive for some (normal?) reasons: 1. a soapbar pickup. I've read on some threads that it's just a humbucker in one package and i've read on other threads that it's made with just one magnet as opposed to ___ (the number of strings) magnets. Some clarification please, if you will. 2. As well, making a pickup with one magnet... what are your thoughts? 3. i see plenty of resources saying "8-10,000 turns for a telecaster pickup" but i want to make bass pickups. I've loved the tone of the Music Mans and the Bartolinis, which i know are very different models but... how many turns, what do more turns do? 4. an idea for counting turns if i build a winder (drill, sewing machine)? thanks guys.
