    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.

    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

    I have a video for sale in the trading post where Lindy Fralin shows that kind of stuff.

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