I have knackered my neck pickup.... HELP!!
« on: December 11, 2010, 09:57:18 AM »
I have a humbucker neck pickup ( not a BKP I must clarify ) that I really like along my BKPs.


DCR: 7.6k at 20ºC
magnet: Long, polished Alnico 2 magnet
screw bobbin: 67 NOS wire
slug bobbin:heavy formvar
other: wound in opposite direction for OOP with bridge, no cover

I was messing with it trying different screws and magnets... and then pop... dead. Well almost... there's some tiny output but not much at all.
Beacuse I've recently moved I have no access to my multimeter but obviously there's hardly any juice coming out of it at all.

What could have gone wrong? I'm rather miffed to be honest.

Why waste your breath moaning at the crowds? Nothing can be done to stop the shouting; if every tongue was still, the stones and rocks themselves would start to sing.

I think the coil wire broke somewhere.
