So I was able to get around to finishing two builds the past couple of weeks. The tele custom I had started about 2 years ago before getting into our fixer-upper home. The multi piece alder Telecaster has a wide range humbucker in the neck, but it is not the larger fender size. It is standard humbucker size with FeCrCo pole piece magnets. I had read Telenator's research saying when they did them they would do around 6,800 winds on each bobbin. With the smaller bobbins I was only able to get 5,800 and stay in a comfortable range. The bridge is wound to about 9,000 with A2 magnets. I used 250k pots for the bridge and 500k for the neck. People talk a lot about how unique the 72 CuNiFe wide range pickups were, and I have never played this, but can say that using the FeCrCo pole pieces has made for a really awesome and unique sounding pickup. Even though the guitars have not been set up, I am really digging this one! The clarity and articulation of both pickups is really great! Now the Deluxe. I had seen a picture kind of similar to this guitar and really loved it. I did a dark grain filler, a brown stain and black sunburst. The pickups are firebird pickups, with bar magnets in the bobbins, in full sized humbucker bobbins/covers.I used copper mesh attached to fully open humbucker covers. I have 500k pots and .22 caps, but am hoping that changing those will improve the firebirds (or maybe my rendition is really just aweful haha). The sound seems to go from underwater to 7 different stages of ice-pick in a hurry. Because of the flat angle of Fender type guitars, I had to remove the roller bridge height screws and replace them with threaded poles, where one end had the thread ground off to fit in the roller bridge holes. Thanks!
