    Explain Pickup Rewinding To Me

    Title - looking to change out the pickups on a fanned 8 I have and it seems that rewinding may be a simpler (and maybe cheaper) alternative to ordering a custom angled set. If I was to commission this through someone like Lundgren, would it be as simple as saying "hey, make the bridge an M8 and...

It seems there're no springs nor any foam which could raise a pickup, it's like they are screwed into the wood with no intention of adjustment. Can anybody explain what the heck? :-)...

    Does location of a pickup relative to the bridge matter?

    I just bought a 2007 Schecter Hellraiser and noticed that the earlier version (prior to 2008-ish) had the pickups much closer together than the later version. The bridge pickup appears to be routed further away from the bridge by about half an inch or so by the looks of it on the older version...

    What is your favorite combo for active neck/bridge humbucker pickups? Looking for recommendations

    Hi there! I am kinda new to this active pickups thing. So far I am happy with the ones I got for my 6 string CGCFAD guitar (EMG 81&85). I've seen there is also a 7 string version but I think I want something different for my 7 string. What I play is heavy chugging riffs on my bridge pickup...

    Could I get a working wiring diagram for this guitar?

I plan to learn with a new guitar kit that I'm going to buy soon, but for now I am paying someone else to do it for me because it's an extremely complicated job. Anyway. I tried to get my guitar set up with a luthier who is...

    Pickup winding

    I couple of weeks ago I started building my own pickup winder, most of the time was spent on coding since its not what I'm best at. I'm fairly happy with the end result, its basically 2 stepper motors controlled by an Arduino Uno, 3D-printed parts and some other parts (rods, bearings etc). Pic...

    Wire choice for rewiring a guitar

    So title kinda gives it away, but I'm looking to install a new set of pickups in a guitar I picked up second hand. The guitar is great, the internal wiring though looks like it was done in a real hurry though so figured I might give rewiring the whole thing a shot while I'm in there. I've...

    Possibly strange wiring in new RGD2127z

    Hello. I just bought an Ibanez RGD2127z today, and since I am going to change the pickups at some point, I decided to take a look at the electronics when I got home. The guitar still has the original V77 and V87 installed, and I dont think the cavity plates have ever been removed. The wiring...
