I’ve been doing a fair few re-winds recently, saving old pickups. This nice old bridge pickup had stopped working. You can see the corrosion around the pole pieces. This corrosion had spread through the pole and caused a break in the windings.
Once I’d stripped the wire off and cleaned the rust away I lacquered the inside of the pickup and then wrapped a very thin tape around the poles to protect the new windings.
It was just a case of winding it with AWG42 plain enamel wire to the original spec, wax potting and testing it.
