    Bright guitar #4.;) The pickup is bright, but not in a bad way, very usable tone. Liked the bridge HB with middle single tone too. That pickup would be a great pickup to have in a dark toned guitar.

    It's time to continue. It's time 1/2 " humbucker now (wire 38 AWG).
    So a first coil:

    I wanted to get more turns in the coils. But for this it is necessary to lay the wire turn to a turn (very tightly). My the winder can not do this (I will do an upgrade my winder later). Looking ahead I will say that I wanted to throw this idea with a wire 38 AWG. But I decided to go to the end and did not regret it now. So, I get next data:

    First coil:
    Turns number 4611
    DCR, kOhms 1.4
    Inductance, H 1,5

    Second coil:
    Turns number 4471
    DCR, kOhms 1.34
    Inductance, H 1,63

    The data does not bode well for anything, at first glance.
    But, I continued...

    Ah, the tall coils. Thinking this will end up like having 2 Tele bridge pups together in series. Could be awesome and I'm sure it would do coil splitting well.

    As a result, I received such data:
    DCR Resistance 2.74 !!!!!:eek:
    Inductance 3.80

    I'll make a new humbucker back cover. For the reason that in this humbucker I will use other neodymium magnets.

    Also I will make a clamp for the main wire:

    Here I show the connection coils:

    The magnets do not get in their place, I'm working on the slots in the back cover.
    Here already done

    The pickup installed in guitar:
    20170610_222257.jpg 20170610_222301.jpg 20170610_222316.jpg
    I was pleasantly surprised by the sound of this humbucker. But, before the demonstration, I want to balanced a magnetic induction. Since the pickup has a high output level. This pickup needs to be little curbed like a wild mustang.

    I'm happy to be back following you on the pickup journey. I can't wait to hear how this one sounds.

    Hey guys here's a demo of clean sound of the1/2 inch humbucker (wire 38 AWG).
    Let me remind you, the amplifier settings are the same.



    I'll make a dirty sound the other day. I have a very busy now, sorry...

    Hey guys, I need help in eliminating the imbalance. What are the wiring diagrams can be applied?

    Phase issue between the middle pup and the blade coil?

    Phase issue between the middle pup and the humbucker (I did not split up the coils yet).

    If the blade coil is the same wind direction and same polarity as the middle pickup, it can have a phase issue when using both pickups. Even when the blade pickup isn't tapped.
    Spin the humbucker coil 180 degrees and see if the problem goes away.
