    there have been a number of posts on making pups, one TB'r I know of is still doing it. A search should turn up threads to guys you can contact. I think there's a thread in the luthier forum currently about mags.

    I assume you know it's not simple, cheap, or predictable without experience and you can't really handwind a pickup - or at least it would take you 8 hours and you'd probably break more winding than you'd use.
  3. i did the seach thing all ready but all the places i found couldnt get them the size i needed or they werent charged.
