P90 Humbucker Size Pickup- Part II

The heart of a pickup is the coil. Copper wire finer than a human hair is wound onto the bobbin. The amount or copper wire and the way in which it is layed down along with the shape of the bobbin all affect the final tone.


Her we are aiming for around 8000 turns of 42 awg wire which is slightly less than a traditional p90 bobbin. The resulting output should be around 7.5 Ohms which should match the bridge humbucker that this pickup is partnering.

Below the video shows the winding process.

Part Three will deal with assembling the pickup.
