Let me see if I can help you, then :)

From what I have gleaned, SD has always used a machine to wind his pickups. In other words, they are not handwound, as Bare Knuckle pups are.

This is really PhilKing's line of country, tho ...

I believe that the first PAFs were handwound in the 50s, until Gibson was able to afford to buy the automatic shut off machines which were used in the 60s.  Strikes me that Seymour has spent a fortune on an original Gibson winder and doesn't want people to know it was used for the weaker sounding 60s PAFs!

Can anyone confirm the story that Leo Fender modified record players and sewing machines to act as winders in the 50s?  Or is that internet mythology?

apparantly, SD used vietnamese children to wind them with their teeth, until Nike offered the kids more money to make cr@ppy trainers instead..

At the moment, I could care less about what Duncan does or says. I've got BKP's and I'm not planning to buy any Duncan pups.

Sewing machines, yes. It's a documented fact.
Turntables, I've never heard of.
