This is my take on the original ’50s Broadcaster pickup. I wind these with 43 AWG Plain enamel and alnico 3 magnets to produce an 8.85k pickup. The coil is slightly more condensed with this wire producing a slimmer coil with the same DC resistance. The result is a tight bottom end and a nicely rounded top end that is not too bright. I use a zinc plated baseplate just like the originals.
