    Question Homemade Humbuckers?

    I'm interested in making a humbucker pickup. Does anyone know of a link or where I can find a tutorial ?

    Oddly enough, Seymour Duncan himself, supplies some of the best info.

    Go to the home page, click on:

    Support>Seymour Q & A, and start reading. There's more than enough info there to design and build a pup. If thats not enough, there's a good book called "Pickup Winding" or such by Jason Lollar.

    Do an Amazon, or Google search, or get it from Stew-Mac.

After several decades in captivity, trying to release an animal back into the wild usually doesn't end all that well for the animal. It's very sad. GuitarStv

    Thanks Artietoo. The Lollar book really doesnt have a lot in it about Humbuckers its quite limited.

    Thats good to know. I haven't actually seen it, but have heard good things about it. I was thinking of buying it.

    Just the other day, I read through all 400 Q & A's. Thats a lot of info.

    It is great for making a winder and has some good stuff (and diagrams for bobbins). It is a good book but humbucker info is a bit limited. Probably because there's more work and parts involved. Maybe Its just me.

    if you can wind a single coil, you may be able to wind a bucker!!

    basically you just wind each coil seperately and connect them, of course its much more complicated to get a good one but hey half thhe fun is trying

    Thanks for the posts. A friend has apparently ordered the video from Stewmac. So I'll check his out when it arrives.
