Like a lot of you I have a parts drawer full of stuff. Well I was on a cleaning rampage the other day and pulled out my Gibson 490R and 498T pickups parts. They came out of a Gibson Smartwood guitar. One pickup is fully assembled and may just need ground soldered but I’m not sure. My multimeter is junk so I get erroneous readings and don’t have a high quality soldering iron to do the job right. The other coils might actually have continuity I’m not sure. I’m an electronic hack but maybe someone could fix these or rewind them etc... or should I sell, give them away just for parts or trash them? I’ve held on to them with the intention of experimenting as a project but don’t have the time, expertise, equipment or patience to do the job right.
