    Finished the first set of 7 string Strandberg pickups tonight. These will be heading to the UK in the morning.

    This set is 16.02k bridge, 13.48k neck, modern wind, with 0.2" thick ceramic bar magnets and charged Alnico V pole pieces. They should sound mean! The poles are also designed to line up with the strings and match the fan on the Strandberg 7 string.

    Faux carbon fiber is cool, but I far prefer the real stuff... Made some carbon fiber tops for a 7 string multscale bass. These will be heading over to Aviator when they're finished.

    So you have bass pickups now. Any sound clips of them, or description of what they sound like?

    This is only the third set, and it's not wound yet. I've got a P-bass pickup in my test bass, but haven't put much time on it, and I've got a set that I sent to another builder quite a while ago that still hasn't been put into use.
