I've really got the urge to give it a shot. I'm not trying to do it to a professional standard or anything, just want to give it a shot for fun. My band has a song that has a real stoner vibe to it, and I'd love to grab a beat up SG and put a home-made pickup in that bitch for gnarly grungy filth
Anybody done it? Any tips? Any particular material sourcing I should go for? Copper wire is plentiful thanks to my father's business, I can grab as much as I like, so no shortage there!
Assuming you haven't already I'd speak with Jon Haire up in P'bro, as you and I both well know he certainly knows his shit.
Also, I'd be interested to see what you come up with if you do manage it, just don't do any of that gaudy burnt chrome bollocks people seem to like.
