    I'd suggest a TB search for "windng pickups" and contact those that look to be still involved. The question's been coming up almost weekly. I know there's at least one TB'r doing it now. Just getting hold of wire in small (5 lb's) quantities is not that easy or cheap. Even those not still doing it will be useful contacts to give perspective on what's invovled. Winding a pup yourself is a formidable project.

    Check the "Luthier's Corner" here on TB. Wilser has had a thread going on that very topic recently.
