Build a Coil Winder for Guitar Pickups & Other Projects | Make:
This project for me came about as just a step on my way to building a guitar. While most electronics in a guitar consist of basic, inexpensive components, a good pickup can be pricey. Its construction is also one of the biggest factors in how your electric guitar will ultimately sound. Building your own pickup is not only a fun learning project, but it also gives you the ability to fine tune the sound of your guitar and build your own unique tone.
