First, we start out with a hand
machined Forbon (vulcanized fiber) black
top plate and gray bottom bobbin plate made right in
Then we assemble the bobbin with the correct size
Alnico V magnets and insulate the bobbin with a coat
of nitrocellulose lacquer
to protect the coil windings. After that, we wind the
pickup's coil with period correct 42 gauge plain
enamel coil wire,
and pot each pickup in a proprietary clear wax bath to
solidify and protect the coil and reduce microphonics.
Once the potting wax has cooled, modern style vinyl
covered hookup wire is soldered to the pickup, the
pickup is tone tested
and the actual electrical specifications are
documented for the included data sheet.
