I'm kind new here so I hopw these don't sound like stupid questions.
1. Exactly how is a pickup made? I know there is a magnet and wires wound around some thing and then pole pieces, but how are they put together and besides the different kinds of magnet is the winding the only thing that gives the pickup its personality?
2. What makes a pickup sound good and clean when you roll back the volume knob, but some pickups just sound like crap when you do that.
My Fullshred sounds great rolled back, but my Breed sounds like CRAP! My Super Distortiions didn't sound that good either.
