    I have a Jazz pup with a broken wind and am wondering if it is possible to fix it myself somehow. Maybe a dumb question but can that be soldered?

    Update: I did my research and found other posts about this. I don't think I have a do it yourself repair situation. The thing is I can see the winds are no longer connected to the solder points. One is clearly broken and the wire coming from that side of the wind is floating nearby. Could conceivable fix that. But there are two other loose broken winds coming around that same side. Three wires, two points to solder. Hmmm. I can see a broken wire in the middle of the wind too. I think it's toast and needs professional attention. I'm in Atl. Anybody have a repair place suggestion? Thanks for listening. Bob

    Search for “pickup rewinding services” and you’ll probably find several choices.

    Also, consider if the cost of the rewinding is cheaper than simply replacing that pickup, unless that particular pickup is special to you, for whatever reason.

    Thanks for the reply. This pup is special to me. It's the bridge pup from what's left of my 1985 Jazz Bass Special. I have both pups and would like to use that set in my pj sometime.

    Show us some up close and in focus photos of where you think the damage is. Sometimes, even with multiple breaks, it's easier than it sounds to fix.
