Chickenbone John's Guitars

Another new venture for 2018. I've just made this pickup winder...and wound my first pickup. Goodness me, it's a steep learning curve - it is so easy to break the wire , and after few false starts I've managed to put on a decent number of turns (8000), solder on a lead and test it...3.8K resistance and it works! I've now got to make a couple more and experiment with different numbers of windings. ... See MoreSee Less

Handwound sound brilliant.

There is more mojo in a hand crank pickup winder. Oh John try a small piece of felt between your fingers to tension the thin copper wire 😉

I recently built one, for some reason i always end the number of turns with 666 !😉

Cool, will you have any ready for Boxstock?

Awsome.... let me know when you've mastered it.... I'm def looking for some !!! 🤘

It will be good to have a uk supplier of cbg pickups I'm going to try making pickups this year too.

We are going to have Chicken bone pickups for cigar box guitars and for vintage guitars?

Awesome, I made one from the wifes old sewing machine. Lots of fun.
