Adelaide guitarist Gary contacted me with a challenge, he had a Keith Richards project and needed some pickups! Gary commissioned me to build a 10k Keefer style Tele bridge pickup with a matching bare nickel covered PAF style pickup to mounted in the neck backwards like Keith’s. He also needed a 4 way harness and the this project was right up my alley!
I wound the bridge pickup to 10k with 43 AWG plain enamel like the old Fender Lap steel pickups and aged the poles. For the neck I wound a nice 7.3k PAF spec humbucker with a 4 conductor lead for the 4-way option and put on a bare nickel cover.
The job went off without a hitch and the finished guitar looks great! Gary’s request for aged poles has prompted me to do a line of relic pickups.
