Smolder wrote:Hi Scott... I've got mine disassembled and assembled.. all of the construction and assembly parts are worked out. The final pick up measures 6.4 ohm. Is that about right? Most worrisome, I have a very weak volume coming from this pickup. I'm guessing that might be the magnet orientation. They both 'pulled' to the poles... and I've tried reversing the polarity of the leads. Any thoughts, or is it just trial and error with the magnets?

This project will potentially need some fussing with, because of the RW/RP and integrating it with other single coils. Its not a fool proof scenario, but with some swapping the polarity and exchanging leads, you can get it to work.
