Troy, I’m glad you could, too! I’m thrilled with the way this looks.
-does anyone know of a pickup winder who’s working right now? The bridge pickup is somewhat microphonic. It’s fine at home volumes, but if I were to rehearse or play out with this when the time comes, it would be an issue. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Re: NBD: 1972 Yamaha SA-70 (now with rewound bridge pickup!)

I put the Sunday Handwound Pickups rewound bridge pickup in late last night. I finally got to play it today for about an hour. Before it was microphonic and a bit thin sounding. Now, it’s clear and with more oomph. Also, no nasty microphonics. Thanks, Tim Esau!
Edit: my next move is to throw some EB Cobalt Flats on it.
