Höfner 510 Pickups re-wind

Old Höfner pickups are common visitors at the workshop for re-winds. The insulation breaks down on the winding wire they used and they become open circuit and simply stop working.

Although these are built like humbuckers magnetically with 2 rows of pole pieces powered by a single bar magnet they have a single coil inside them.

The bobbins are often very fragile. They’re made of thin plastic and can deform easily.

I was happy with how they came out in the end.

If you have any dead pickups, get in touch.
