The Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. They are wonderful at fixing and preserving vintage pickups.
The insulation can wear through over time, creating shorts (sometimes annoyingly inconsistent, intermittent ones). The coil wire itself can break, causing an open. One of those two is usually what causes a pickup to need re-winding.
The Duncan Custom Shop can repair old pickups for you.
The forvar wire is coated in an enamel. It isn't consistent in thickness and 70s pickups weren't well potted. Seymour Duncan started by repairing old pickups, he carefully unwound them, repaired the break and then re-enamelled the wire. They will do that plus potting to stop squeal. The wire can just break or corrode through.
.....yep,the classic open coil.Odd thing is they can sound great for a while before it kicks in,played clean its like there's an extra resonant thing going on.Then its all over.....
