Rewind on an old Jansen Pickup

Jansen toaster pickup

A couple of weeks back I received this faulty old pickup from a JansenPickup from a stratophonic hollow bodied bass made in New Zealand.

The meter was showing it was ‘open circuit’ so after the usual tests for dry joints and removing the top layer of windings I decided it needed rewinding.

I do enjoy saving old dead pickups and this one looks so cool with that ‘toaster’ cover.
