I have a pretty good understanding of electronics, but I'm trying to wrap my head around the idea of a wind changing the magnetic strength.
I'm assuming that the more winds on a bobbin, the stronger it is as an electromagnet. Is this right?
One thing I like about lower output pickups is the fact that the strings vibrate like an acoustic, and the sustain is much better. But vintage pickups have the same pole pieces and magnet, so it's got to be the hotter wind, right? Hotter pickups create more pull on the strings, diminishing their movement.
