    Hi everybody.

    I am doing a physics report right now, and as a bass player, i wanted to do somthing with the guitar itself. So i decided to learn all about the diferent types of pickups and whatnot. I am looking for some sites or information that can give me the basics on them, how they work, the diferent kinds, what each does. I would really appriciate it for my project sake!

    Hi Astro.

    Here's a link to a site that explains how they work and you don't have to be Seymour Duncan to understand it -

    They have tons more pickup info there, too.

    Note: It deals with magnetic pickups only. I don't have a site handy that explains optical pickups.
