homemade pickup


Recommended Posts

Today I decided to try and build a magnetic guitar pickup for fun. I want to try and build a guitar entirely from scratch and what better place to start than with the pickup. I built it into an Altoids mint tin. It is made with some rectangular ceramic magnets, Basswood top and bottom and some enamel coated wire. This is my first attempt at building a guitar pickup so it was a learning experience. It is pretty low output so I'm going back the the old drawing board to see how I can make it louder. I'm thinking of just going with an active preamp or something. I don't know though. Here are some pictures.
