    Gil you are 100% right... I used advance search to dig through the thread. It was February 17th when you did that LOL.

    I think it means 50 winds with the thread coming from the left and then 50 winds with the thread coming from the right (only a few cms difference). You shouldn't be dewinding..the bobbin keeps going the same way

    Is that the same as "scatterwound"? The boutique PU makers usually have this as a distinguishing feature. It's a randomish pattern when winding around the bobbin. Personally I'm not sure how much difference it makes once you take all the other variables into account (the guiar, amp, cable, speakers etc), but I guess it all adds up :).

    man, this build is such a treat!

    i could never bring up the discipline to work so refined and detailed. on the one hand I think it's a pity you put all the effort in a "copy". on the other hand: great admiration for the way you do this and show it to us with good pics and explanation!

    DoronEsh, you really need to read the whole thread (dedicate half your day for it :lol:).

    Gil posted the weight-relief/chambering very early on in this thread. He's experimenting with it for now. Here's the link. In case you get lost, here are the pics from that bit of the thread.

    ???

    You go back and forth (left to right to left to right) and do 50 wounds per layer.
    If you only go in one direction... you'll need a very tall bobbin and your neck angle will be around 89° (-;

    The completion of this guitar is going to be so bittersweet... It looks amazing Gil! The relic on the inlays looks perfect!

    I desperately want to see this guitar in person. But I can't afford the travel cost.

    This thread continues to amaze me, Gil.
