Mike Linden from Belfast makes these lovely stratocaster pickups from Indian Rosewood.

Mike buys polepieces from us amongst other things and in our view his completed work is meticulous with some of the best winds and cleanest soldering we've ever seen.








Alberto from North-East Italy is also a true maestro of the coil winder.

Here he displays a creation he's had in mind to build a set of the fattest stratocaster pickups you will ever see or hear based upon getting a P100 sound. The pickups have been custom cut from a sheet of fibreboard and designed to fit inside a TV Jones style exposed coil chrome surround. The resistance readings were: Bridge 8.6k, Middle 8.0 and Neck 7.8k.

We have heard the sound clips of these finished pickups and they blow your socks off.
