New pickup going into the new bass
New pickup going into the new bass. It’s based on a P90-style magnetic structure, but it uses a single blade pole. The assembly is cast in epoxy resin, and while it’s good for this prototype, I’m a few castings away from a finished piece. The faceplate is aluminum – theoretically, the shape will help to mitigate the any loss of high due to eddy currents. However, this is an untested theory, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll have to try using a nickel silver faceplate instead.
At this point, I am awaiting the arrival of some longer pickup screws so I can assemble this bass and try out my new pickup. #funktronicpickups #boutiquepickups #handmadepickups #boutiquebasses #boutiqueguitars #bassesofinstagram #guitarsofinstagram #pickupwinding #pickupbuilder #luthier #bassbuilder
