    Ok im starting in the world of the guitar tech and i want to do my own pickups.

    Im building my own winder with an used driller but i need to know certain things as:

    How many wounds should i be using for pickups?

    Whats the diff between using different wires width and composition.

    how much pressure should i use to get the wounds tight and not breaking the wire.

    Ill apreciate real answers and not simply "youll need a lot of wounds" like some mod did b4 :scowl: ...

    Thx alex.
