Fender pickups - changes thru the years?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by P-punk, Jul 3, 2014.

  1. I tried to search, but couldn't find anything. That's not so say this hasn't already been covered. :)

    How did Fender pickups change through the years? Soundwise, how they're built, how they're wound etc. I know that the're will be inconsistencies even within a year, but in general.

    I've read that JB pickups from the early '60s we're generally wound to mid 8s, while pickups from the late '60s were wound to low 7s or even 6.

    Could anybody give a kind of timeline of Fender pups?

    As you understand English is not my first language, but hopefully you understand what I'm asking for. :)

    You have an excellent command of the English language. You make perfect sense. I understand exactly what you are wanting but unfortunately I don't have the answer but I will research and try and find out. You might try messaging DarkHorse here on the forum. He is an electronic design engineer for Genz Benz and a bass player also. I would bet he will know.
