Guitar pickup repair – Repairing a Telecaster Bridge Pickup.
Win a set of handwound Classic Alnico 5 Humbuckers.
I’m giving away a set of my handwound pickups to one luck person who’s joined The Creamery Facebook page that I’ve created. I’m planning to launch my new guitar, effects pedals & pickup store in April and once that is up and running, the first name pulled from the hat will win the pickups, regardless of where they are in the world.
Just got the promo cards back from the printers. It’s all coming together. Recoded most of the soundfiles for both guitars & pickups. Just got to finish off the final versions of the Fuzz and tremolo pedals, record the tones and get them on the site. Completion of the online store is the priority then its time to roll up my sleeves and get back to work – those pickups don’t wind themselves.
Taking inspiration from the phrase, “The Telecaster: The Plank That Made Good” please be upstanding for Guitar 007 – Blackguard Three. The dry pine was such good wood, with such great tonal characteristics I couldn’t let any go to waste – hence ‘The Plank’ , or the nickname that seems to have stuck, ‘The Mutt’. The obvious choice of guitar to build with these offcuts was a Telecaster style. It just seemed the right thing to do. So here it is in all its ragged glory – Blackguard Three: A telecaster style guitar with handwound pickups and the bite & twang you’d expect.
Handcrafted Fenruary 2010.
Its looking like I can open for business at the end of March / early April. Just finishing off the site and online pickup shop. Also working on a guide to build your own pickup winder which will come later. More when I know but the lights are abut to change to green.
